There are seven simple nail shapes to choose from, all with slightly different visual effects. Want to make your fingers look thinner? There is a nail shape for that. Are your nails thinner? There is an optimal shape for that.
First, we have square nails that are fairly self-explanatory: the tips are square at the edges to give a clean, smooth look. If you prefer a square shape but prefer something a little more subtle, squawal may be a good option.
Then, there are the nuts and stilettos. Almond shaped nails are softer between the two and much easier to achieve from a natural nail. Almond nails have a rounded tip but flare down and show the illusion of a point, without any hard tip.
Stiletto nails on the other hand come to a point. This could shape Technically Achieve on a natural nail, but that nail must be pretty long and strong to hold.
Coffin nail is another, edgier option. This shape consists of rounded edges with rounded edges and a flat top. It is basically a happy medium between nuts and square nails.

Especially if you want to keep your nails short but still want to shape them, a round tip is perfect. Achieving this shape is not very complicated and it is certainly more practical than other looks.
