Mine are Squoval and over the tip (I measured my thumbnail...it's a little over 1/2 inch long from cuticle to tip) and they're all about the same length.

Hi Cindy! Great seeing you as it's been awhile! I wear my nails more of an squoval. I think that shape is most flattering on my hands. And I would say they are about 1/4 inch above my fingertip. Sometimes I let them get alittle longer.

My nails are squoval (i think) i follow the shape of my finger pad when i am shaping them.

My nails are on average 3/4 of an inch from base to tip with just over 1/4 of an inch tip, although my pinky finger is 10/16 of an inch from base to tip and the tip is 1/4 of an inch, not bad going for someone who doesnt use any special nail products other than a hand and nail cream for two weeks out of four, and only file them twice a month.

mine are like stressies. :-) just over the finger tip and square. :) What exactly is sqoval though? I am interested. BTW, I haven't bitten a nail in around 2 months. :) I am VERY happy with them now! I just wish I could take these off soon and have real nails now! :-)
