Everybody has different tastes in wardrobe, hair, and, most of all, nails.

While some women like to wear their nails long (some even try stiletto shapes), others prefer short square or round ones with a neutral nail polish shade.

It all depends on the personality. And our Zodiac sign can also help determine what nail shapes will be our favorites and what better to avoid.

Do Zodiac Signs Determine Personality?

One of the questions astrologists get a lot is: “What are the best zodiac signs?” We often see these signs as good and bad rather than thinking about the things they bring. Nothing is black and white when it comes to astrology, as well as nail art.

The four elements – fire signs, water signs, earth signs, and air signs create a comprehensive whole. They determine and shape your unique personality.

For example, Aries are ambitious, love to compete, and always come out on top. On the other hand, Pieces are the most intuitive and empathetic sign of all. As the last sign, it absorbs every lesson. It symbolizes two fish swimming on opposite sides – one representing reality and the other – fantasy.

Have you considered picking a suitable nail shape based on a Zodiac sign? Let’s explore the options.

Aries (The Ram)

Aries love to be seen. They are energetic, adventurous, and, most of the time, impulsive. They don’t follow the rules and conventions, so they prefer colorful styles and bright shades.

In combination with an oval nail shape, Ruby red is one of the varieties Aries will love. Moreover, if people in this sign want to be more eclectic, go for a colorful mix of shades, but make sure your nails are cut short so they won’t bother you while you are having a good time.

Taurus (The Bull)

There is no better sign for French manicures than Taurus. They are classy, rational, and grounded, as well as this manicure itself.

Taurus like timeless things that are always in style and seek natural beauty. We all know that a square nail shape is the best for a French manicure, but you can also go for an oval.

Gemini (The Twins)

Geminis can get bored so fast. They are expressive, playful, and always up for something lively and fun. That is how the nails should be, too.

Rainbow colors and bright shades are different on every fingernail. When it comes to shape, you can pick everything interesting yet practical. Square, oval, or round nail shapes are perfect for Geminis.

Cancer (The Crab)

Cancers need a style that is easy to maintain on the go. So, no long and complicated nail shapes like stilettos or coffins. Instead, choose something shorter and more practical – oval, round, or almond will be great in combination with a neutral and romantic manicure.

Leo (The Lion)

Leos are known for their show-off style. So, you need nail polish and a shape that follows that. Start with some exciting nail polish or mani design, like glitz or ombre nails.

Coffin nails, stiletto, or long almond-shaped nails will be the right choice for Leos.

Virgo (The Maiden)

Virgos know how to make the most minimalist nail style look maximalist. Since they are always on the go, they don’t bother to slow down for anything, not even to shape their nails.

Pick a neutral, blush pink nail polish and a short square shape for tidy and perfect nails.

Libra (The Scales)

If there is any nail polish style that Libra didn’t try, let us know. They live for beauty and nice things.

The ideal nail polish style for Libras is bold and shiny. Metallics match perfectly with oval and round nail shapes.

Scorpio (The Scorpion)

Scorpios can rock any trend, but they often wear dark colors and stiletto nails. They also love to go out of their comfort zone, so it is not unusual for them to try something else.

Scorpios are determined and powerful, mysterious and rebellious, just like a black manicure with a stiletto nail shape.

Sagittarius (The Archer)

Adventurous Sagittarius can wear bohemian styles in combination with short and practical nail shapes.

This sign is bold, lively, and eager for new things, so everything from glitter to marble nails will be a good idea.

Capricorn (The Goat)

Professional and stylish – two words that describe Capricorn’s nail polish choices. The nails should have the element of boldness, but they should also be ready for daily wear and office-friendly.

So, short and practical nail shapes, like round, square, almond, and oval, are great in combination with classic shades.

Aquarius (The Water Bearer)

Aquarius is always going to break the rules about nail polish and style.

Animal print, bold and vivid shades, and usually square nails are the things that describe them entirely.

Pisces (The Fishes)

Pisces are romantic souls, uncomplicated, and completely charming.

This sign will pick neutral shades and classic nail shapes, but it won’t be afraid to try something new as well.
