Stiletto claws have been a popular nail design since the 60’s. Also called claw nails or pointy nails, stiletto nails are fun, feminine and definitely sexy to have. If you’re looking for an awesome way to show off your sizzling, empowered feminine side, there are several fabulous stiletto nail designs available today. Short stiletto nails – short enough to fit around your hand and yet long enough to finish your finger – are a fantastic way to showcase your playful nature. These look amazing with casual skirts, mini dresses and pencil skirts. If you’re planning to deck yourself out in a chic, sophisticated, polished look for the office, then go for short stiletto nails that complement any occasion with style!
Long stiletto nails require nail polish in order to be crafted into a pointy design. Since this nail style is primarily an art, applying the right polish can help give you the perfect look. While some prefer to go with clear acrylic stiletto nails because they have a more defined shape, other women opt for a smudged acrylic look that is less obvious and much easier to apply in the long run. It’s really a personal preference, but either way you go, there’s no mistaking the style.
For a daytime manicure, grab a chic acrylic kit featuring short stiletto nails and a cute stiletto comb. To complete this look, top with a chunky silver tray that can hold acrylic paint or liquid nails manicure. Next, use a small brush to buff your nails to make them appear flawless. Then, top off with a pretty clutch bag that matches your polish. Finish off with a touch up shade of pink or lavender.
If you want to play up a more formal look, try using a longer stiletto shape for daytime wear and a shorter one for evenings. To achieve this look, choose a chic handbag with an oversized clutch. Top off this with short stiletto nails that are in a cute ombre pattern. Paint in a couple of different designs onto your nails – some smaller polka dots for a whimsical look, and some larger polka dots for a stiletto shape that will really stand out.
If you’re going to be spending the night at a party, you’ll want to consider some nighttime options. Stiletto style pendants can give you the classic look without the stiletto nails, as can gel polish. Gel polish compliments stiletto style well, because it goes on smooth and easily. Next, go with some metallic gold glitter if you want to add a little bling to your look. Finally, go with some gold frosting to really compliment the gold stiletto nails you wear.
These are just a few ideas that can help you find just the right stiletto nail style for your needs. For daytime wear, go with simple stiletto style pendants and gel polish, or go with a stiletto and gel polish in a longer, tapered shape for evening wear.
