    I get square, BUT the ends are slightly filed so it’s not as “harsh” to me. 🙂

    I get square with rounded edges.  When I have gotten just square in the past, I always end up scratching myself 🙂

    Square but with rounded edges. More of a sports tip look.

    i have weird nails, so i keep them square so they don’t grow all funny. I think they look nicer, too. Less like talons, haha.

    I always get mine square.  I think they look funny when they are rounded lol.  No offense to anyone who has theirs done that way! lol

    Squared with round edges! Oval looks old fashioned to me.

    Squoval (yes it is a real term used by nail technicians). But since that isn’t an option with your poll, I would go with square. Squoval is the technical term for square with the rounded edges so they don’t snag on anything. I personally don’t like the look of oval.

    Squared+round edges/squoval =]

    My mom has VERY oval nails, lol, but they look elegant on her long thin fingers. Not so much on mine.

    My nails are always all different lengths (my pinky and ring finger nails actually get long since I never use those fingers, the rest stay stubby), and to me getting them squared always looks funny.  I think having them rounded when some are pretty shurt looks a little mroe natural.

    I get square with rounded edges, 4/5 of my fingers grow out square naturally anyway, just my index fingers are more naturally oval shaped (I must be some kind of square fingered freak!!). That’s really the only nail they have to fiddle with to shape it!

    Squoval all the way!  If you have really long slender fingers I think oval can look very elegant but in general I do think of it as an ‘older’ look.

    I get what my manicurist calls a “soft square” it is square, but very slightly rounded across the top with rounded tips. It doesn’t have the harsh square look, and I don’t end up scratching myself.

    OVAL, OVAL, OVAL!!!!!!!!! I am adamant about this.  To me, its a much softer, feminine look.
