Stiletto nails are really trendy right now. With celebrities like Rihanna, Fergie and Beyoncé rocking the stiletto nail look, the hot new trend is hard to ignore. These pointy-looking nails have made us think beyond regular round, square, oval and almond nail styles and added a little spice to the nail world.
Stiletto is an acrylic nail shape that is tapering towards the tip. The name comes from stiletto heels as this incredible shape resemble them a lot.
People usually mistake ‘Almond’ nail shape for ‘Stiletto’, but the Stiletto shape has a much more drastic point. Plus, the Stiletto is not possible on natural nails because they don’t have enough strength to hold the shape. So if you want this look it’s better to opt for nail enhancements.
People have mixed opinion about sporting Stiletto nails. The pointed shape with sharp tip makes the simplest of chores difficult like typing, applying makeup and opening containers.
Pros of Stiletto nails:
- They are prone to breaking
- If not done correctly, they can make your fingers appear short and stubby
- They can be dangerous as injury can be easily caused by the pointed tips
- They may be difficult to maintain and are also high maintenance
- Gripping things won’t be as easy
- Doing day to day chores with these nails might be difficult and take time getting used to
