Square-shaped nails

When you wear nails in a square shape, you are simple and honest. You are a born leader and a firm person. You are more likely to succeed in your career choice because you are reliable and dependent. Everything you do is done to the teeth, paying great attention to details and oh you are not left out of the party when it’s that time.

Round-shaped nails

Those who choose the round shape for their nails tend to move more towards the natural way of doing things and very confident about themselves. They are essentially happy people who spread love wherever they find themselves. When you wear your nails round, you tend to see the beauty in your surroundings. Also, you are the people’s favorite, and you are not a pushover but a highly reliable individual.
