It’s occurred to me that if I chose to, I could head to the manicurist for trendy stiletto nails. Just as a wedge shoe bears no resemblance to 6-inch heels, these nails deserve their name. I’ve also heard people call them ‘cat’s claws’ and ‘vampire nails’ – probably because they drew blood trying to put on an earring.
Super-pointy fingernails have been around for years, but there are fresh designs all over Tumblr and Pinterest, spectacular displays of art on a razor’s edge. I see them on women where I live, and maybe you do, too. Your favorite celeb probably has them.
Me, I only have to worry about spearing my husband, which is worry enough. The cat might actually like it.
For those of us without paparazzi in the driveway, nails that are pretty much useless for anything except texting and pulling olives from a jar are definitely a style option, easier for those without children, puppies or eczema.
