Would you?

Nails like this generally polarise opinion.  I know some people genuinely feel repulsed by very long nails let alone pointy ones which leaves the rest of us clambering to book ourselves in with our nearest nail techs faster than it takes a lick of Seche Vite to dry.

Me? I’ve surprised myself by coming to the conclusion that I’m genuinely sat on the fence over this one.

I’m drawn to them as art… would I though?  Probably not.

Ohhhh wait, I dunno though… Mr. L would shit his pants if I trundled into the bedroom rocking those tips.  And that my lovelies, would make it *totally* worth it.

  2. Jo says:

    Eeeew no, don’t like them one bit. They just look scary. I dont think they are attractive at all and I think Mr.L would shit himself if you walked into the bedroom with them talons haha.

    I don’t know how anyone COULD. You literally couyldn’t do hardly anything with those on!

    Why they remind me of edward scissorhand ??

  5. Gemma says:

    I would totally end up stabbing myself in the eye if I got those. Clumsy + pointy = bad.

  6. Ew. Not a fan!

    Though… you could still do a design on normal nails that’s pretty and artsy!

  7. Nicole says:

    Nope, I’d never have these. The art on them is quite pretty but I think pointy talons just look tacky.

  8. Lisa Kate says:

    Okay I’ll be the weirdo and say I absolutely love them. As art, though. They make a gorgeous picture and the painting is lovely. But I couldn’t ever wear them…let’s just say I’d have one less eye by the end of the day!

  9. tackyblueeyeshadow says:

    Er…..no! Not for me…totally vulgar!

    I like the patterns on them though…but that’s about it!

  10. diana says:

    They are very artistic but I would never wear them. It’s too much maintenance.

  11. Ceona says:

    The patterns are pretty, the nails make me squick a bit though. And I’d never get my contact lenses in. I’d spike an eyeball straight out!

  12. Ceona I’m with you – I struggle with my contacts as it is… I remember getting acrylics and it was an absolute nightmare.

    Pretty…. no… practical… no… artistic… yes.

    uh scary.

    these are pretty i must admit but they’re just not practical and that doesn’t make sense to me. unless you are a runway model and this is what the designer wants, please leave your nails to a natural length and shape.

  14. nicole says:

    those look dangerous lol

  15. Redtiger21 says:

    Ermmmmmm no! Can you imagine trying to change nappies with those on! While I’m on the subject, I work in a nursing home so I really don’t think they’d be great for me lol!!

    One word: Cruella.

    Have you had a look at Enfu-Oh’s designs? Totally nuts!

    I personally have been getting my nails done in a similar fashion for over a year now. I work in a custom framing shop and have a 4 y/o son, so they are only about 3/4 of an inch long. They are much easier to wear than the “flare” or “square-tip” style, no corners that you aren’t really used to getting caught on everything. They are the only style I’ve had that you can actually scratch your leg THROUGH blue-jeans – I’m from Texas, that’s pretty much all I wear. You do have to be careful when you first get them done, and I definitely wouldn’t go for the 2 inch long “talons” these people have. A very pointed tip and a little bit of length goes a long way in making anyones hands look a lot more feminine. I would recommend this style, downplayed a bit, or perhaps just longer oval tips, see what you think!

  18. Nikki says:

    These nails are HOTT!!! I am going on a cruise in a few weeks; this is how my nails will be done. I loves it 🙂

  19. Karen says:

    I like em. I’m a nail Tech and when I next do my nails that’s what I’ll be having! x

  20. Susan says:

    I have these nails and love them! Mine are very long (about an inch past the end of my fingers)and not a problem to wear. You do have to get used to them but that only takes a day or so. I am a fiber artist by trade and they do not hinder me in the least. In fact, they are pretty handy tools when I am doing precision work.

  21. Wendy says:

    I’ve had inch-long stilettos for nearly a year now and just love them! My children love them too and my daughter who’s 10 want to have long nails like mine too LOL. They take some getting used to though. It’s easy to scratch someone with them if you’re not careful. But then, a couple of times, the scratches weren’t accidental.

  22. Brooke says:

    I have this style of nails and I love them.
    Yes they take a bit to get used to.
    Yes a little witchy.
    Yes very painful to wipe after going to the bathroom.
    But cant live without them!!
    And they do file down after a few days and become less pointy!
    Give them a try!

  23. shaz says:

    I have actually worn stileto nails before but they aren’t hard to maintain or wear. They are just like squared nail tips but a different shape at the top it wasz worth the try and its nice to have something different on ur nails instead of having the same old natural or square tips like everyone. Step out of the box and try it you never know, u may just like the way they look on you 😉

    Beautiful, you get used to them and they are not bad that bad, I as a true vampire wear them but mine are metal with design to them
