There’s no doubt about it, nail art is a hot trend right now. The newest trend in nail art is “stiletto” nails, which have been rocked by celebs like Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Katy Perry.
Achieve the look:
Grow out your nails, long enough that you can file them into a point. Pair them with a fun nail design or simplify the look with your favorite polish. Or treat yourself to a manicure at your local nail salon, but they may need to apply tips to your nails to achieve the look.
These dagger-like nails are fun, but might not be for everyone.
A few fun ideas to spice up your nail’s life:
Pair a nude polish with a neon tip. Caviar them. Ombre them. Mix and match colors. Marble them. Mattify them. And, when in doubt, glitterfy them!
