Stiletto Nails vs. Square Nails

I ALWAYS stuck with the square acrylic nails since the time I was a teenager. Recently I've been seeing all these different trendy nails like the Jersey flare nails, coffin shaped nails, almond shaped nails, and stiletto nails and I thought they looked nice on certain people, but didn't think I'd ever be able to pull any of them off. Having my nails done makes me feel more put together. When my nails aren't done, I feel so plain! Plus they make me feel more girly that what I already am.

Well, I decided to be brave. (Look at me taking all these risks and trying new things lately, *high-five to self*)I've been seeing awesome designs on the stiletto/almond shape nails and I wanted to try it out. I was so nervous to get them done. I knew the guy I go to for my nails would do a great job with whatever I wanted because he's just frikin' amazing! But, I was still nervous I wouldn't be able to pull off the trend. I sucked it up and put my big girl panties on and went for it! Let me tell you, I am never (okay, maybe not never) going back to square nails. I say maybe not never because I still like the square nails, but for right now I absolutely LOVE my stiletto/almond shaped ones! *insert emoji with heart eyes*

I decided to go with a bright coral color for the base coat and every alternating finger has a black triangle at the base of my finger with a rhinestone at the tip of the triangle. On my ring and pointer finger, I have a stripe down the middle of my nail with a little bit of aztec/zig zag detail, also with rhinestones. Below are pictures. I love the design and I feel like there is so much more you can do with stiletto nails that wouldn't necessarily look right on regular square nails.



I thought this nail shape would be very uncomfortable and sharp, but they aren't claw-like at all. They're pointy, but not sharp. I can still type, put my make up on, put my contacts in, and all of my other daily things. I have only had them for about 3 days and I have already received so many compliments on them! I also got my toes done with the same color to match. I get my nails done in another two weeks, so I will update you with my new design when I do!

Below is an example of a design I previously had with the square acrylics. This design had a plain blue base coat. On my pinky, thumb, and middle finger there was ombre glitter. On my pointer there was white painted over top of the base blue in a chevron pattern. On my ring finger there was white stripes going up and down.
