40 Cute Tapered Square Nails For Your Next Manicure Idea

We’ve covered stiletto nails, almond nails, and coffin nails… why not try these tapered square nails for your next manicure?

If you’re not familiar with this nail shape, we’ve got you covered. Like the name would suggest, tapered square nails are essentially long square nails where the sides get ever so slightly thinner while still maintaining their square shape. Meaning, while square nails hold their own straight edge all the way to the tip, tapered square nails are shaped slightly inward. 

While a lot of people confuse coffin nails with tapered square nails, there’s actually a difference between the two. Coffin nails are even more tapered, creating a subtle V shape while maintaining a flat tip. 

Tapered square nails are pretty easy to achieve at home on your own as long as you have a nail clipper and a nail file, but if you are inexperienced, then we suggest getting a ready-made press-on nail set!

Press-on nails are very convenient since you won’t have to create designs. All you have to do is choose from a wide selection of nails on Etsy, all made by independent nail techs. But if you’d rather go for a manicure, just save your favorite design from this post and show it to your manicurist.

Let’s start!
