About This Quiz

Unless you frequently manicure your nails, it's unlikely that you think about your nail shape very often. If you're not into decorating your nails, you probably haven't consciously shaped them. To you, your nails are nail-shaped. Sometimes they're round. Sometimes they're ovalish. Other times your nails are varying shapes, and you need to cut or file them down. If that's you, you may find it interesting that there are at least 12 different nail shapes. If you're someone who is always doing something different with your nails, you might be able to name all the shapes and maybe a few that you've created.

For those who aren't familiar with nail shapes, they range from classic to unusual. You're likely to see someone with a rounded nail, an oval-shaped nail, or a shape called the squoval, which is a squared oval. You will have to do some searching to find someone with mountain peak nails or arrowhead nails. Other nail shapes include square, almond, stiletto, ballerina, edge, lipstick and flare. Some of those shapes can be made using a person's natural nail, while others require gels or acrylic to be created.
