Stiletto Nails

Amazingly stiletto nails are one trend that just keeps coming back into fashion. The reason why that's amazing is that they're not exactly easy to live with.

Believe it or not, this outrageously flamboyant style first appeared in the 1920s, thanks to actress Theda Bara. She kept her claws extra spiky and it really got her noticed.

Acrylic Stilettos

Most probably named after stiletto heels, there are a couple of ways to achieve this look. If your natural nails are long and strong they can be filed into the stiletto shape. Alternatively, they can be sculpted using acrylics.

Sculpting with acrylics requires the form to be rolled really tight and narrow at the tip to create a long fine point.

Most definitely a fashion statement - and sometimes referred to as claw or talon nails - the look has been seen on numerous celebrities including Rihanna and Lady GaGa. It became super popular after appearing on the runways in 2013.

In The Spotlight

According to Vogue magazine, if you want your nails to scream 'look at me' this is the style to choose. These are the nails for someone who loves being in the spotlight. However, Vogue suggests you keep away from dark colours like black and purple - as it's just too Halloween - and team the look with simple sophisticated outfits.

An alternative to going full stiletto is the 'almond'. It's a slightly diluted version of the claw that suits a more classic style.

Whilst stiletto nails will certainly get you noticed you do need to bear a few things in mind. If you use your natural nails this style is very prone to breaking, so it might be better to stick with acrylics.

Not For Contact Lens Wearers

More importantly, you need to realise that stiletto nails can cut your productivity by about 50% and you may need help with everyday tasks like applying makeup and tying your shoelaces! If you wear contact lenses you should definitely give this trend a miss.

All joking aside you will find many tasks - including your job - rather difficult once you get stiletto nails. Those who favour the look say it's just a case of adjusting and finding new ways to do things. For example, when applying makeup you will need to use brushes. You'll also become a big fan of the loofah in the shower.

Stiletto nails require more upkeep so you will need to book in regularly for manicures. Most nail salons will suggest starting slightly shorter and 'growing into' stilettos. They can also give you great advice on caring for your new claws. One really important tip is to keep them ultra clean as they can become a bit of a bacteria trap.

Release Your Inner Vamp

Whilst you may be a fan of the minimalist mani we all have to 'go mad' occasionally. Everyone should try stiletto nails at least once, just for the experience. It's a wicked look for a party or special occasion but probably not the right choice for your wedding day.

If your plan is to grow the longest stiletto nails ever you do have some competition. Houston-based Ayanna Williams broke all the records by having the 'longest fingernails on a pair of female hands'. She has more than 18 feet of nails altogether and says it takes up to a week to paint them.

You'll find plenty of inspiration on Pinterest for your new look. Some of those creations totally have the 'wow' factor and there's no shortage of glitter. In fact, stiletto nails are absolutely perfect for indulging your love of nail art.
