At first I wasn’t sure about this trend. I thought that they were scary and looked like witch nails. But then I kept seeing them over and over on cute celebs (not just the scary ones), and I got more interested. Then I was seeing them all over instagram and some of my friends got them and I was like ok I’m going to try them. Now I’m kind of obsessed. I really like them because I think they are lady like if you do them right. Plus, if you want to do any of the fun nail art that’s “all the rage” right now it gives you a lot more room on your nail to do it.
While, Rihanna and Lana del Rey are repeat offenders, in a good way in my opinion. I always love to see what they are gonna do. Bad Girl gets a little crazy for my most of the time, but I still love seeing hers.
Of course, I think the shape definitely changes how I feel about them. My favorite is the almond shape. The “stiletto” or mountain peak is a little too scary for me. But that’s just me personally and the shape of my hands!
Here are a couple of the ones I have gotten done. I was so obsessed with these first ones. I was so sad when they grew out! But it’s fun because I’ve been finding so many other styles I want to try, especially for fall! I do think that the plain nude nail is one my favorite go-to nails right now though.
