The beauty of this nail shape is that it's long enough to paint in any shade of lacquer you fancy and can hold designs if that's your jam. With Autumn rolling in we're likely to see lacquers in red, burgundy, gold and copper, through to the palest of pale pinks.

Almond nail look number one ...
Can't decide between pink or red? Try both! And why not create this sweet heart-shaped look while you're at it?
If it's too much choose one feature nail.
Almond nail look number two ...
If you work in a conservative industry or you just prefer to keep your manicure simple, nothing is more chic than a rich, dark grey or even black, especially when applied to almond shaped nails.
These shades will look stunning with all jewellery but especially gold.
Almond nail look number three ...
Neutral shades work on all nail shapes including stiletto, coffin and even square, but they look especially pretty on an almond-shaped nail.
We love a ballet pink, a soft cream or even a milky white.
Almond nail look number four ...
The reverse French tip! Yes. A french manicure with a little something special - that is, applying a coloured tip instead of the traditional white.
We love this bold red combined with the traditional pink but this style works with any shades at all. Just make sure one is light and one is dark and that they complement one another.
