You (and your feet) know stilettos. AKA those high sexy heels that taper to a sharp point and are perfect for a night out on town and ideal for navigating cobblestone side streets? (Just kidding about that last part!) Now imagine the same pointed and fierce shape atop your nail beds. Meet the stiletto nails. Not to be confused with its conservative older cousin the almond nail or its wild brother the coffin nail, stiletto nails come to a distinct taper at the top (and could poke an eye out if need be). They’re also a sexy favorite among your favorite one-namers like BeyoncéRihannaZendayaSZA, and, of course, the Kardashian/Jenner crew. Ahead, 10 stiletto nail designs that will encourage your next manicure. Proceed with caution.

1Chrome Hearts

Let L.A. manicurist Chaun P.’s chrome metallic nails inspire your stilleto move. Chaun P.’s is responsible for the long nails of the Kardashian ladies. Watch out though. These stiletto nails have been linked with unforeseen pregnancy. (Kidding!)

2Black on Black

Black is still the new black. Pair a matte black with vinyl black details and you’ll look like the baddest boss in the game.

3Gucci Gang

Love Alessandro Michele, Taylor Swift, or both? This is the nail for you. We’ve seen Supreme nails, LV nails, and Chanel nails so it’s about time Gucci got its shine on.

4Crystal Clear

It can be a bit difficult to make a stiletto nail look natural, but keeping it fresh with a coat of clear polish is a great start. Plus, It lends a bit of a healthy shine. If you are gifted in applying fake nails (and shaping them!) you won’t need to head to salon for an intricate design.

5BabyGirl Blue

A pastel blue that pops is a great contrast to a badass stiletto nail. Just like you, or at least your favorite child-shaped candy, it’s sweet and sour.

6Send Nudes

A classic rose nude is amplified by a vinyl sheen. People will be asking what highlight you use on your nails.

7Money Moves

You probably can’t pull this look off at home unless you’re a trained manicurist with double jointed fingers, but let it serve as inspiration for your next nail appointment. If you think listening to Cardi B’s music is empowering, just wait until you have her face painted on your fingers.

8The Sun Never Sets on the Cool

If almond nails and stiletto nails had a baby—or ten of them—they’d look like these little darlings. They’re the perfect balance of sharp and subtle, and a great option if you’re on the fence about going for a full point. Amplify with a cool ombre design.

9Magic Magenta

Purple is the color of royalty, wisdom, strength, and your next manicure. The badass stiletto shape already exudes confidence, so ramp it up further with purple plus a glossy, shiny topcoat.

10Accent Nail

On top of the stiletto shape, add an accent nail. A shimmery translucent tip is a great highlight for a newly adorned ring finger.
