Stiletto Nail OCD

I’ve been dying to get some gel nails for awhile now.  I get them every 3-4 years or so and keep them for about a year.  I’ve also been wanting to try out the whole “stiletto nail” thing.  I feel like they are super feminine, lengthen your fingers and are edgy all at the same time.  Lord knows I need all the help I can get with my 11 year old boy hands.  My manicurist hadn’t really heard of the whole “stiletto nail” thing so she called it oval.  I guess in a way it IS oval but sharper.  I had to keep getting her to file more.  I opted for a periwinkle cream color by OPI (I can’t recall the name) and kept it really simple.   Then by that night I painted a leopard print accent nail.

I actually liked the shape of my nails when I left the salon but as I kept obsessively staring at my nails, I decided I wanted them thinner and sharper.  It’s a good thing I know myself because I had her apply a gel coat to my nail UNDER my polish so that I could easily remove the polish and have a pretty shiny base to work with.  As I inspect my nails, I realized she didn’t do an incredible job painting them anyway.  I kept the periwinkle nail for about 2 days and refiled all my nails.  I now LOVE the shape!!!

I decided to play with the Sally Hansen Gem Crush polish in Big Money and create a gradient tip.  I really love how it turned out although I don’t think the pictures do it justice.

  1. They’re gorgeous <3 I love the glitter gradient tips. They're so pretty.

    • <3<3 thanks!!!

  2. I love the styletto nails!! Unfortunately in health care I can’t have pretty nails…>.<!! Suuuucks! It's a sacrifice but at least I can still look at pretty nail pictures haha :3

    • awww well we appreciate your sacrifice! <3

  3. Love your pointy nails ;) I didn’t know they had such a fashion-forward name until now – I’ve sported “stiletto” nails for the past 10 years. It’s my favorite shape and my nails, contrary to the popular belief, grow longer and stronger in a pointed shape. They make your hands look lovely!

    • Thanks! That’s awesome you’ve had em for so long! I think they are so feminine!!

  4. It’s so crazy that you just got gel nails as I have been toying with the idea for two weeks. I had them about two or three years ago, but eventually got rid of them. But now it’s stuck in my head to do it again and more than likely it’ll happen this weekend. (I even asked on Facebook for good recommendations regarding awesome nail techs who can do gel nails!)

    • I’ve been goin back and forth in my head for the last month or so lol…. Finally just went for it and I’m so happy with them. For now lol

  5. I just filed my stilettos away a few days ago, after 2 months of growing one of them broke so I had to shorten them all. They were all natural and super long, I loved them.. :(

    • I’ll forever be jealous of people who can grow their natural nails!!!! I’m sad they broke =(

  6. Love the gradient tip!So chic!

    Kisses!

    • XOXO

  7. I’ve been wanting to do the round shape for a while now, they look so cute and I could do so many different designs! I’m in esthetician school now though and long nails do not make for good facials, haha.

    • Long nails don’t make good for a lot of things LOL…. Love it tho!

  8. Love the shape on you and the gradient is gorgeous! Big Money is such a fun polish. ^_^

    • This was my first time using it and I really like it! Thanks!
