Who Suits Oval Nails?

The oval nail shape makes your nail bed appear long and narrow. This makes it a perfect choice for those with short fingers, as well as short and wide nail beds. It’s a flattering shape that can be worn in a short, medium, or long length and unlike the stiletto or coffin nails, it’s much more durable and low-maintenance.
