Mattie Mani: Stiletto Nails


After a fairly eventful weekend, I took myself to relax and got a mani and pedi the beginning of this week. While I got my pedicure, I convinced myself to try the stiletto nail trend that I’ve seen on some of my favorite celebrities and bloggers. After watching the GIOGO Show consistently, I was easily convinced that it was worth a try. And I must say, I am not disappointed.


I had totally retired the acrylic tips but they were necessary to successfully pull of this look. I was originally going to get a pastel pink (in honor of spring!) with glitter on top but at the last minute I just had the technician paint the tips with the glitter polish. He used OPI’s Crown Me Already (similar). So glad I just did the glitter. It really pops. Looks like I dipped my nails in some sparkly quicksilver. He added two layers of top coat and that was it.

Have you tried the stiletto nail trend? What do you think?

  1. Cute! You have the hands for it! :-) I’ve seen some folks with fat or weird looking hands and it throws the nails all off! LOL

  2. Love this!

  3. Love it! Im usually not a fan of the stiletto nails but they look fab on you!

  4. Hmmm. I’m so torn w this trend. The shape of the nails immediately make me think that they’d be so fitting for a girl w high-fashion, dark aesthetic. Rihanna during her Rated R album comes to mind. Or girls who live for Rick Owens, Ann Demuelemeester, Comme, etc.

    But then I see the nails get these cute spring colors and patterns and the juxtaposition throws me off. You’re nails are cute, and it’s very creative how u decided to French tip them and play w textures. I think it would’ve been cool if the base was a light smoky gray to give it a reverse ombré effect too.

    I checked out Giogo and loved the 2nd ones from the left. I’m all for trying new things and I think u picked a great way to start switching it up as Spring approaches.

  5. These are the best stiletto nails I’ve seen. You make me want to give the trend a try :)

  6. I think I need to try this. Your nails are everything. But I’m not sure I would still be able to do daily tasks and most importantly, type.
