How To Do The Hot Pink Lightning Bolt Nails Design: The Square Nail Shape
A more angular nail shape suits the straight lines of the lightning bolt accent nail. Coffin nails or square nails are the best shapes for this nail design.
Square nails are simple to shape, first file both sides of the nail bed in a straight line out to the tip. Then file each nail straight across taking extra care to keep the nail tip parallel with the nail bed. Any angles on the square shape will show much more obviously than other nail shapes.
If square nail edges are a little too sharp for your liking, simply file the corners very lightly to soften the edges and create a squoval nail shape.
Square nails were super popular in the 2000s and are having a comeback. They look great on all hands, but especially on longer fingers.
