Just like the sleek, pointed tip on your favorite pair of heels, a stiletto manicure like Fergie’s gives off the illusion of longer, slimmer digits, and we love how the unexpected shape veers from the traditional square or oval appearances. Although the singer lacquered up in a steely silver color, even classic nude shades get an extra edge with the addition of a sharp point. Try your hand at this look for a night out by filing your nails into a V-shape, but make sure the tip is slightly rounded. While Fergie’s extreme talons are a great red carpet statement, a knife-like point can be impractical for everyday wear. The rounded edge still maintains the same fashion-forward appearance, but won’t get in the way of your daily tasks.
