You and your feet know stilettos, aka those sexy high heels that taper to a sharp point and are perfect for a night out on town and navigating cobblestone streets (kidding about that last part). Now, imagine the same pointed and fierce shape atop your nail beds. That is what we call stiletto nails. They are not to be confused with their conservative older cousin, almond nails, or their wild sibling, coffin nails. Stilettos come to a distinct taper at the top—and could poke an eye out if need be. They're also a favorite among your favorite one-namers like Beyoncé, Rihanna, Zendaya, SZA, and, of course, the Kardashian/Jenner crew. Ahead, find 10 stiletto nail designs to inspire your next manicure. Proceed with caution.

1 Red Hot

Red, red nails. If Elvira ever got a manicure, her nails would probably look exactly like this. Instead of going for a full fire engine red nail, leave small negative space as the bottom for an updated french manicure.

2 Ready for this Jelly?

Pink, but make it perspex. The neon barbie color screams summer and jelly nails are a top trend for 2019. Dream house and jeep not included.

3 Gucci Gang

Love Alessandro Michele, the old Taylor, 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.

4 Chrome Hearts

Let L.A. manicurist Chaun P.’s chrome metallic nails inspire your next stilleto move. Chaun P. is responsible for the long nails of the Kardashian ladies, so you can trust him.

5 Nude with an Accent

It's all in the details. Upgrade your classic nude nails with a bejeweled accent ring finger.

6 Crystal Clear

It can be a bit difficult to make a stiletto nail look natural, but keeping it fresh with a coat of semi-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.

7 BabyGirl Blue

A pastel, matte 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.

8 Send Nudes

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

9 Money 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.

10 Fiery Ombre

If almond nails and stiletto nails had a baby—or 10 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.

11 Magic 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.

12 Accent 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.
