May 11, 2015 By: admin Category: Uncategorized

The stiletto nails have been quite popular these days, no doubt about that. In fact, a lot of popular celebrities, such as: Beyonce, Lana Del Ray, and Rihanna have been sporting the look, encouraging a lot of ladies to hit their local salon for the same treatment. However, before making an appointment to your favorite salon, consider the pros and cons of having these type of nails.┬áLet’s start with the advantages.

Promotes Finesse and Femininity

With stiletto nails, you’ll be required to move your hands like a real lady, because you need to keep your fingertips flat at all times. Whether you’re operating a touchscreen, or pressing a button, you’re not allowed to use your nails. Thus, this will give a little elegance to how your hands move.

You’ll Make New Friends!
Prepare yourself for this– most women will probably compliment your nails, because not all ladies have the ‘guts’ to try these nails.

Better Skin
If you have a habit of scratching your skin every now and then, these pointy acrylics will refrain you from doing that. Just think about how painful it will be if you accidentally scratch yourself.

Your Pet Will Love You Even More
Believe it or not, most dogs do enjoy the feeling of having their bellies rubbed by pointy nails. Thus, this will make your lovable pet become more affectionate toward you.

Now that we’ve discussed about the advantages of having stiletto nails, let’s move on to the disadvantages.

Not for Busy Ladies
First things first. Stiletto nails aren’t for the ladies who don’t have much time on their hands. The whole process will take over an hour and you’ll be required to come back every two weeks to maintain the look.

For those who haven’t tried this process before, allow us to break it down for you: first, you’ll have your nails roughed up with an emery board. Then, plastic tips will be glued to your nails, and you need to wait for about ten minutes for it to dry out. After that, a nail technician will trim off the excess parts of the fake nails using a nail clipper in order to attain a reasonable length. This is where the shaping will begin. If you think the process ends there, you’re wrong. It’s just the beginning.

If you wear contacts, removing them and placing them, can be a daunting task for you. If you’re still interested in getting stiletto nails, it’s advisable to just wear glasses instead of contacts.

You’ll Become Helpless
Are you familiar with the saying “I can’t do anything with my hair”? Well, nail treatment literally comes from the same vein of inability to do anything. Once your nails are prepped and drying, you’re very limited in doing a whole lot.

The Fear of Breaking One
Aside from looking tacky, stiletto nails could give you a risk of bending back your natural nails and that will cause a lot of pain.

These are just some of the pros and cons of having acrylic nails. Overall, it’s not that bad having these nails, but you can’t say that it’s all good, either.
