Stunning nail designs trending in 2019

This year the biggest trends vary. From long stiletto nails to short oval shapes, people choose their nail shape according mostly to their lifestyle. So, what are the trendiest nail shapes for 2019 and how to choose the most suitable one?

1. Squoval nails

Squoval nails are very popular and common amongst women, who are looking for something that is both feminine and easy to maintain. What’s more, it is a very classical look, so it doesn’t need lots of upkeep. It is suitable for people with both long and short fingers and wide and long nail beds. Plus, squoval nails are universally flattering, which is why they are so popular.

2. Almond nails

Almond nails have been on the rise for a few years now and they are not slowing down anytime soon. Very feminine, but with a bit more difficult upkeep. They make up for it, however, because they give the possibility for some quite beautiful drawings. Keep in mind though that you have to have pretty long nails, in order for your manicurist to turn them into almond shaped ones. If they are your own and not acrylic, keep in mind that they might be prone to breakage. They are mostly suitable for people with narrow nail beds.

3. Stiletto / Pointed nails

When it comes to stiletto nails, they are almost impossible to keep without acrylic or gel reinforcement. Even more so, with their very pointy ends they break quite easily. They are very beautiful, nonetheless.  However, if you need to clean your house often, or change your baby diapers, stiletto nails are definitely not for you. To be honest, I don’t know how people text with these nails, but, hey, people are creative. Because of their longness, your manicurist will have lots of space for entire works of art on your nails. So, if you have enough time for going to the salon often and are willing to spend more time texting, these nails are truly stunning.

Coffin nails are another popular trend, embraced by none other than Kylie Jenner herself. Whatever goes for stiletto nails, pretty much goes for coffin nails, as well. The only difference being coffin nails can be a bit shorter.

Rhinestones are very common amongst nail art design trends. Big, small, just a few, or covering the whole nail, people really have taken the whole out-of-the-box thinking thing to task.

5. Matte nail polish

Matte nail polish has been on the rise for awhile now and is not slowing down. It is beautiful and classy. If you don’t want to have your nails shining, matte is a great option. What’s more, even if you can’t afford buying different matte colours, you can just get a matte top coat, which turns all your favourite nail polishes into matte ones.
