False stiletto nails are practical and easier options

If you still don't feel safe trying to leave your own stiletto style nails or want a more practical option, false nails may be an alternative.

It is possible to find on the market both the very long stiletto nail to be glued to the base of the nail as well as the pointed tip to stick to the tip of your nail. You can also buy square or round fake nails and sand them down to stiletto shape.

When choosing between the types of false nails, be aware of your needs. Gel nails are applied directly to the nail by a professional and last a minimum of 15 days. Self-adhesive nails can be applied by yourself and can easily be found at cosmetics stores? But for better durability and conservation, contact with water should be avoided. Porcelain nails look more natural, but the application should be done very carefully and preferably by a professional manicure.
