Top Tips for Choosing the Perfect Everyday Manicure


Regardless of what you might think, a manicure is quite a personal thing.

Everyone has their own unique style and their own idea of what looks good, but there are some things that are the same for all manicures, and which should be kept in mind when you are choosing a perfect manicure for everyday wear.

Manicure options are numerous and the styles, especially those that are popular at the moment, tend to change so often that it can be hard to know what will be most suitable for an everyday kind of look.

Ultimately, your perfect everyday mani should suit your personality and your lifestyle, and we’re sharing some helpful advice if you are wondering what will work best for you.

How to choose the best everyday manicure


Should you choose gel or acrylic nails?


Some tend to think that when you are making a choice between these two options it comes down to quality. That’s not true. Both treatments are known for their high quality and either option can give you a set of really beautiful nails.

The main difference between the two comes down to longevity. Gel nails are going to give you fewer days of wear while acrylic nails are far longer lasting. Gel nails tend to be better for nail care, your nails are sensitive to what is placed on them, while acrylic nails are far less likely to come off, which makes them more ideal for the active person.

After you have made your decision of which type of nails will be best for your everyday wear, you will have to decide on the shape of the nail, as this too will affect the suitability of the manicure.


Popular nail shapes


Not only do you need to consider the shape of the nail, but you also need to think about the length. The length and shape need to fit in with your daily routine, without getting in the way of what you are doing and without breaking. These are some of the more common nail shapes that are perfectly suitable for the modern, on-the-moving woman.

Coffin nails


They are not as morbid as they sound, coffin nails only get their name from their slightly square tips. These nails are ideal if you are looking for short nails, and they can be beautifully decorated.


Stiletto nails


A little edgier, these spiked tipped nails are not for everyone because they take some getting used to.

Square nails


These are perhaps the most conventional-looking manicured nails, the full square tips always look great and can be adorned with all sorts of colours and nail art. Generally, those who prefer this sort of nail shape also favour simple nudes, pastels, and French tips.

As for the colours, it all comes down to what you prefer.

Not only should your manicure perfectly match your look, but the choice of manicure should also match your lifestyle. If you are the active kind, you should make sure that you are opting for a treatment that will not only last while you are digging in the garden but will also be kind on your real nails while also giving them some form of protection.
