Squoval False Nails
About Squoval False Nails
Squoval nails, what a fabulous word mash up! The blend of square and oval nails. When one cannot decide which shape of nail to have, why not have both? One of the the great things about squoval nails is that they suit both long nails and short nails.
What are squoval nails?
Squoval nails are exactly as they sound, part square and part oval. Oval nails are very elegant, but some find them a little dull. Square nails always seem on trend, but can be a little edgy. So combining the two creates a hybrid shaped nail which offers the best of both nail shapes and they are one of the most low maintenance options for false nails.
When did the squoval nail become so popular?
Manicures and a desire for perfect nails is no new thing. Looking as far back as the Egyptians and Chinese, both men and women were indulging in nail care and even nail art, often as a symbol of wealth or status.
As we move into more modern times, chic nail inspiration comes from movie stars, singers and most recently, social media. Whilst you may presume that nail art is a hot new craze, the women of the 1930s would most definitely tell you otherwise.
In the 1930s, nail polish had been around for about ten years and ladies had already started experimenting with half moon styles and nail swirls. It was during the 1950s and swinging 60s that the squoval nail really came into everyday wear. And it has stood the test of time, with many people still selecting this nail shape for a day-to-day look.
What shape of hands best suit squoval nails?
Long and Slim Fingers: If you are blessed with long and slim fingers, then any type of nail shape is very flattering. However, when compared with a basic oval shape or almond, squoval nails will give your hands the appearance of extra width, which can make for a more eye-catching finish.
Short and Slim Fingers: This is all about elongating the finger whilst adding a little width. It can make the hands look more elegant, perhaps more grown up.
How do I file squoval nails?
- How long are your nails? If your nails are fairly long, you probably want to start with cutting off some of the length. Take your nail clippers and cut into a square shape. If you already have shorter nails, this makes the process a little easier.
- The trick is all about the filing. Start by filing a straight edge on the tip of the nail. Continue to file until you have your desired length.
- To soften your look, you now need to take the file and start to round the corners of each nail. Take care to do this in a slow manner which will reduce the risks of over filing.
Repeat the above steps on every finger.
