Today I have a very special post for you from Brittany at Clumps of Mascara! Brittany is a mega successful beauty blogger in Florida, we recently did a swap which was absolutely fantastic because she introduced me to the phenomenon that is Cult Nails! In this post Brittany shows us how she achieved her perfect nail shape. So over to Brittany!
Well, I did it. I have successfully reshaped my nails. I know, I know...it sounds crazy, doesn’t it? For as long as I can remember, my nails have had the square shape to ‘em. Even when I was rocking acrylic nails, they were always filed square-like. And I didn’t mind it. I have freakishly long and wide nail beds and I figured that keeping the square shape would suit me just fine.

That was until I ran into a fellow blogger whose nails made me insanely jealous. Alicia of Nifty Ba’s oval (almost pointy) nails were gorgeous, classic and unique. And before I knew it, I was re-shaping my nails to look like Alicia’s. Am I copycat or what?
I let my nails grow out as long as they could before I started the reshaping process. When I got enough length, I filed on both sides of my nails to achieve a peak. It took a while...

...but the longer my nails got, the more filing I did.

I soooo don't remember. I used like 5-6 polishes for that baby. LOL!
My dream nails. Only fellow beauty bloggers would understand the awesomeness that is changing nail shapes. Have you ever changed the look of your nails?
