Pointy nails - love or loath them?

 I have to do a short post on my love for pointy/stiletto nails.  For a while now I had been thinking of changing my square tip acrylic nails for 'pointy' nails - Much loved by Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Lana Del Ray and many more celebs,  after looking on Instagram and Pinterest at endless colours and designs I decided to take the plunge and get myself some claws!!!
 
My new nails <3 In OPI 'Sweet Heart' - this shade is the perfect pinky/nude.
 
 
And I love them ♥ I prefer the shape much more to squares and I personally think they look more elegant, they also suit my hand shape (I have long thin fingers and the nail suits the shape of my hands - or so the nail technician said)
I don't find any difficulties in wearing them, typing on a keyboard was slightly hard to get used to but I don't struggle, and I find using a touch screen phone is fine.
I know they are in fashion at the moment and perhaps soon they wont be on trend, but I am loving them and will continue to keep the pointy nails while I have acrylics on!
What's your opinion on pointy nails? Do you Love or Loath them?

Here are some of my favourite colours and designs I have seen on Pinterest, maybe they'll inspire you...
(All photos below have been taken from Pinterest and are NOT my own images -  I have simply used them as inspiration)
 
Below are Nude coloured nails which are probably my favourites - So wearable and easy for day to day wear! Love them all 
 
 

 Below are some slightly bolder colours, but I love them also - the red is gorgeous, the black  I know isn't everyones cup of tea but I love it (Especially for Autumn) and the white looks really simple and classy.
 
Love,

Emily x

    1. Once you have the pointy ones I don't think you'll like the squares as much xx

  11. I like them as long as they're not too long, but this is probably the shape I'd get if I ever had acrylics! xx

  12. I have such terrible nails and this post makes me so envious! They look so gorgeous. I am so used to having short nails now though that it would probably freak me out having claws! xo

  15. I got white claws like in the picture at the bottom and absolutely loved them! And i used to get square too but now I just look back at photos and think ugh they don't look good at all. Pointy for the win. And also deffo recommend white next time you go get them done.
    Much love,
