Back in the day, acrylic tips with the French manicure were the hottest thing ever. They were classic, long and had the perfect square shape, and the neutral color was perfect for every day. You might even try a vivid red color if you were bold enough. Fast forward to 2012, and acrylic is back and stronger than ever. Instead of the square shape, women are opting for a somewhat pointier shape, much like claws. They’re called stiletto nails.
First, Rihanna starts rocking the stiletto nail trend, now Cassie, Beyonce, Amber Rose, and even Adele are all donning the long pointy nails. The stiletto nails are not only edgy, but also very lady-like and elegant. With the right polish, they would be perfect for every day, even in a professional setting. Or, if you’re a bit more eccentric, the designs and color choices are endless. You can go super long and pointy, or you can go for a shorter rounder look. You can adapt the length and the shape of the stiletto nail to best suit you. Here a few different stiletto nail designs I absolutely adore:
