How I Shaped My Nails into Almond Shape (Baby Stillettos)

Hello everyone! I hope you're enjoying this holiday weekend. I finally have a day off and was excited to play with my nails. You may have noticed I've been trying to grow out my natural nails. I've worn square/squoval for a couple of years now and wanted to switch things up a bit, so I decided to try almond shape nails. I think I first fell in love with almonds when I saw Adele sporting them. Her fingers looked so long and elegant with the extended shape. 

Since my nails are short I couldn't create extremely long almonds (stilettos), so I'm going for the baby stiletto/almond version. Stiletto's are actually more pointy, but you know what I mean. 

Here's a video showing how I went from round to almond nails:

And here are the finished results:

The polish I'm wearing is Klean Color Black. I just painted black over my Chalkboard nails to allow me to shape them better. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be. 

I really like this nail shape so far. I'm not sure how long I'll be able to grow out my natural nails with this shape, but it will be fun to see.  

 Thanks for stopping by my blog today. Have a great weekend :)


  1. I have square shape nails now.. LOvely :)The nail paint is wow..

  2. Thanks Gowthami. I'll probably switch back soon, but they are fun for now :)

  3. i switched one of my hands to almonds a while ago, i have been considering to do it properly, but iv been too scared haha!

    1. I hear ya! I was a little scared too, until I tried acrylic nails. Then I realized I really like the shape.

  4. Love the new shape on you. It's such a fun shape to wear! I found mine actually didn't break as often when I wore them as almonds. They take so much longer to shape though, so I don't know if I'll be trying it again :) Enjoy them!

    1. Thanks LaquerLove. Your nails are already perfect. No need to change :)
