When it comes to the nail game, there’s always been a debate about the best shape to flaunt. While there are plenty of gorgeous options to choose from, there is something special about almond nails. And that something is that you can play with length to suit your needs. Not to mention, there are plenty of almond nail designs to spice things up. You can opt for an array of French nail looks or go for a multi-colored masterpiece. If you’re determined to upgrade your almond nail game, we’re here to help. Follow along as we share 18 almond shape nail designs that will add a chic accent to your beauty look.

1. MARBLE NAILS

Why we love them: They resemble marble surfaces and are a fabulous way to add a sophisticated yet luxurious element to your mani.

How to DIY the look: Kick things off by painting your nails white. Then, use a small detail brush to paint random grey lines. Take a toothpick to “swirl” the shades together for a marble effect. Follow up by sealing everything in with a thick top coat.

2. GEOMETRIC NAILS

Why we love them: Geometric nails give you free reign to flaunt a range of shapes. You can opt for a simple or intricate design to bring the look to life.

How to get the look: Since these almond nail designs require precision, it’s best to leave this look in the hands of your manicurist.

3. HOLE PUNCH NAILS

Why we love them: This nail look allows you to punch various shapes through your almond shape for a fun and playful touch. They’re a chic way to test the waters with acrylics before making a full commitment.

How to DIY the look: Set the stage by dipping the rounded tip of a bobby pin into your desired nail polish color. Carefully press the tip onto your nails to create polka dots.

5. GALAXY NAILS

Why we love them: These intergalactic nails work wonders to show off your love for the cosmos.

How to get the look: Since this intricate manicure requires a blend of polish shades, you’ll want to book an appointment with your manicurist.

6. FLORAL NAILS

Why we love them: Floral nails can add a subtle accent to your mani or a full garden of color that will make a statement. 

How to get the look: This design can be a bit tricky to master, so we recommend consulting with your manicurist.

7. PEARL-EMBELLISHED NAILS

Why we love them: Pearl-embellished nails are a foolproof way to add a glamorous spin to your nails. They’re also oh-so-easy to create.

11. THE ANGLED FRENCH

Why we love it: This nail design is a modern approach to the classic French manicure. It’s a chic way to pull off an abstract yet polished look.

How to DIY the look: Start by painting your nails nude. Once your nails are fully dried, place a strip of clear tape at an angle to serve as a guideline for your angled tips. Paint your tips in white, remove the tape, and finish with a top coat.

12. REVERSE FRENCH

Why we love it: Consider this French alternative the cool-girl remix to the traditional French mani. We’ll always be fans of a trendy take on a classic look.

How to DIY the look: Kick things off with a coat of nude polish. Rather than painting the tips of your nails white, paint a half-moon shape at the base of your nail. Once complete, seal the deal with a layer of top coat.

13. THIN FRENCH TIPS

Why we love them: They’re the true epitome of minimalism without sacrificing style. These skinny tips keep things simple while giving your nails a polished and well put-together look.

How to DIY the look: Paint your nails a natural nude shade. Follow up by painting the tip with a thin white line. You can also up the ante with double contrasting lines of color.

14. TWO-TONE

Why we love it: You can take the guesswork out of choosing a single color and flaunt two shades in one. Not to mention, they give your manicure the perfect touch of contrast.

How to DIY the look: Choose two coordinating shades. Paint half of each nail with one polish and the other side with your remaining shade.

15. STRIPED NAILS

Why we love them: Striped nails are a simplistic yet stunning design that complements the almond shape perfectly. They can be worn horizontally or vertically.

How to DIY the look: Using a thin nail polish brush or pen, paint your stripes anywhere you’d like. You can also mix and match different colors for a dimensional look.

16. HALF-DIP NAILS

Why we love them: They’ll give your nails a half-sheer look that will turn heads with ease.

How to get the look: Simply paint each nail from the halfway point down to the tip. Layer a sheer polish or top coat on top.

17. NEGATIVE SPACE NAILS

Why we love them: Negative space nails are just what you need to show off your natural nails with a transparent design. You can opt for a geometric look or something subtle to make a lasting impression.

How to DIY the look: Start by applying a strip of tape to your nails. This will help block off a small section of your nails for a transparent look. Paint around the taped area. Let your polish dry and remove the tape for a standout area of color.

18. COLOR BLOCK NAILS

Why we love them: They make it easy to step outside-of-the-box and show off your personality. These nails also help you don various shades at once for a colorful masterpiece.

How to DIY the look: Start by painting your nails in a single color. Once dry, layer a thin piece of tape diagonally along your nails to create a top and bottom half. Paint your exposed nails with a contrasting polish color. Once dry, peel off the piece of tape to reveal your color block look. Then, layer on a top coat.
