Spring '11 Trend to Try Now: Stiletto Nails

Spring '11 Trend to Try Now: Stiletto Nails

The runways have spoken and there's a new nail shape in town: the stiletto. Word. It's already developed an A-list following with pointed talons seen on the hands of Fergie and Gaga in recent weeks. It all started back with the Fall shows of The Blondes, ThreeASFOUR and Victor DeSouza, but thanks to some serious support on the Spring '11 runways, we've decided this talon trend is worth a whirl . . .

Runway inspiration: Ruffian, Jose Duran, Z by Zac Posen

Celeb spots: Lady Gaga in London on Friday, Fergie on tour with the Black Eyed Peas Plays in Salvador last week, Rihanna in NYC, Fergie at the NY Jets vs. the Miami Dolphins game late last month

TIP #1: Don't wear them to the office. This look might be oh-so on-trend an' all but your boss will FREAK if he sees you with claws (sorry, nails) that double as a lethal weapon.

Keep reading . . .TIP #2: If you're asking for it in a nail salon, not everyone will be familiar with the term "stiletto" nail, so instead, ask for an almond shape and then get them to go even pointer until you're happy.

TIP #3: This is a great shape to really elongate the fingers, so if your digits are a little on the short side, this is the nail shape for you.

TIP #4: While it's been popular in the US, we'd leave the black polish out of this look (unless you're dressing for Halloween) and stick with a neutral-toned hue à la Fergie.
