When talking about fashion trends, the shape of nails is rarely discussed. After all, this nuance often depends on the personal preferences and physical characteristics of a particular person's hands. However, this spring season, nail experts recommend paying special attention to the squoval. This is an advanced form of nails that claims to be the most popular. This was reported by SSPDaily.

Trendy manicure for spring 2024: what is a squoval

Squared manicure is the abbreviated name for two nail shapes. From the English words "square" and "oval". It can be literally translated as a square oval. This rounded shape replaced the standard oval nails and immediately became very popular.

According to experts, it is worth paying attention to the squoval, if only because it is much easier to make a trendy nail shape yourself than to repeat a complex design. In addition, the squoval is a great intermediate version of the shape, which is suitable for those who want to grow their nails, because it is as close to the natural shape as possible.

Nail artist Hannah Maaz says that the rounded squoval gives the nails a more natural look because it follows the natural curves. It is ideal for damaged or irregularly shaped nails. In general, squoval is suitable for both short and long nails. It is also quite practical on short ones.

How to make a squoval yourself

In order to correctly design a squawl shape, you need to follow certain rules:

Leave the free edge of the nail as rectangular as possible, only the corners should be rounded. It is not difficult to get carried away in the process of filing, so remember that squawks do not need long sanding. Otherwise, it will turn into a regular oval.

Experts advise starting the squoval design from the top point. That is, the edge should be filed parallel to the base of the nail bed. Once the top line is straight, you can move on to the corners to make them a little softer. If you start with the corners, there is a high probability that the nails will turn into an oval.

To create a squoval, nail technicians advise using nail files with a grit no higher than 240. Thanks to this tool, you can easily process the nail plate, minimally rounding its edges.
