I tried making these but they did not turned out well. Is my dough too wet? Once they went into the oven, their shapes wont hold even though I had already put them into the fridge for at least 20mins? Any advice for me?

If you blanch and peel the almonds they look a lot more like fingernails. Also, they should be placed in the other direction, tip up and rounded part down because a fingernail is more likely to be pointy on top.
