I’ve really been on the fence about this new super pointy nail trend. It seems everyone is on board lately. First it was just Fergie, Lady Gaga, and Adele. Now I see the girls checking me out at Forever 21 with elaborately designed long pointed nails every week.
I’m still just not sure how I feel about them, so I decided to try a modified version on myself this week. I don’t like the look of long nails so mine are much shorter than all of the pointed nails in question and, to be honest, a bit less pointed. I couldn’t bring myself to go full on talon.
I kept them nude with just a pop of color via contrasting stripes and polka dots. Thoughts? Are you into this trend or do you think my hands look foolish right now? Every time I look at my hands I feel like Maleficent.
Hugs and kisses,
UPDATE as of 4/22/12: I couldn’t look at my hands with these pointy claws for one more second. I broke and took out my emery board to go right back to my tried and true squoval. Pointy nails are apparently just too trendy for me.
