nails of the week: stiletto french with studs

Pin It

these days people are calling pointy nails like this stiletto nails. i’ve been able to grow my natural nails out and file them into my own pointy stiletto nails because i do my DIY gel manicures which keep them from breaking!

this week i created a pointed french tip, kind of like a chevron arrow shape using Gelish Sheek White and then painted a bunch of coats of clear to make it look like a french manicure. i highlighted the design with a little gold stud i bought from this site and used more clear coats to seal in the 3D stud. i feel classy, with the french tip but still funky with the nail shape and the stud!

    those are so cute! how often do you recommend doing gel manicures though? after you remove them, when do you usually do another gel?

    Mr. Kate, Do you have any tips on taking off gel manicures at home? I’m having the hardest time and I don’t want to pay for the salon to take them off.
    Thanks!
