What do your nails say about you? Quite a bit, actually! Take a look below to see if we got it right.

1) Pointed

You’re bold, girl! The pointy, triangle-shaped nail belongs to a confident woman of many opinions and ideas. You’re not afraid to say what you mean and say it mean, but you also value the advice and opinions of others. Some may describe you as hard-headed, but you always have the best intentions.

2) Round

The round nail highlights the laid-back personality of its beholder. You rarely lose your cool, in fact, you’re usually the one to smooth over conflicts between friends and family members. People turn to you for emotional support.

3) Broad base

You try your best to get along with everyone, and for the most part, you succeed. However, your ability to tolerate others doesn’t mean you don’t have feelings of your own. You’re easily hurt and you don’t always know how to communicate this to others.

4) Broad top

If your nails fan-out at the tips, you probably struggle to keep your temper in check. Long, tedious tasks are no problem for you, but your patience runs out when it comes to managing others.
