Stiletto Nails are becoming quite the trend for those who love elaborate nail designs! Thanks to celebs like Lady GaGa, Fergie and Rihanna for bringing back this popular style from the 1950’s and 60’s. More and more women are opting for this bold new look!
As far as nail art goes, stiletto style nails make quite a statement. They are basically oval shaped, but pointed at the top rather than rounded. They tend to be quite long and are therefore almost always fake nails. However, due to the fact that they are longer, they provide more options for detailed and intricate nail designs!

That being said, if you’re feeling daring, you can totally try to duplicate stiletto designs for nails on your own. If you don’t feel comfortable with DIY nail designs, however, your favorite nail salon will definitely be able to help you out!
And for those who don’t want super-long nails, stiletto nails don’t have to be extremely long. You can alternate these stiletto designs to suit shorter nail lengths. The best part about this style of nails is that it is extremely versatile.
