I personally have not noticed one type of style chipping more than other. I say shape your nails the way you like! You also have to look at your hands and see which style you like the best! For example my fingers a bit shorter so I like to grow my nails a little bit longer to give them a elongated appearance. Also, do not forget to use a nails strengthener! I suggest the Sephora by OPI Nail Treatment - 3 in 1 Base, Top, & Strengthener.
