Nails

Going on holiday on wednesday, so decided to file my nails properly (as opposed to just cutting them) so they look half decent.

Thing is, how do you decide what shape to do them? 3 fingers basically have square nails, and the other two have round ones. It's probably a stupid question mind. :chin:

    Have you not heard of the new trend for 'squoval' nails? Yeah, I know :rolleyes: To be honest if my nails are neither square nor rounded, i just file them right down to their natural shape- that way, when they grow out they're still a nice shape :)

    I think round is the easiest to take care of. Though round for me is the natural shape. So like dobbin, that would probably be the best. I think they are much easier to take care of. If one chips, you can usually just file it down a smidgeon without having to trim all your nails and it still looks fine. And I'm bored so heres this http://www.ivillage.co.uk/beauty/skincare/nails/articles/0,14281,547680_549138,00.html
