Although we’ve made a pretty good case that you can find just about anything on Pinterest, there are a few categories where it especially shines.
One of those areas is undoubtedly beauty. Hair styles, clothing, shoes–you name it. If you have a few minutes to spare, Pinterest will keep you current.
That’s why I was so excited when I started seeing the latest in nail trends popping up in my feed…Stiletto Nails.
If you haven’t seen this, hold on to your horses—but be careful not to break a nail! You’re in for a treat!
Pinterest Nightmare #552a: The Blue Stiletto Nail
Have you ever seen something so beautiful and not at all frightening? I don’t know why we haven’t been doing these for years. With stiletto nails, you get to have a real-life version of Edward Scissorhands playing out at your fingertips!
Sure, stiletto nails might make it difficult to change a diaper, or write with a pen (or hold a fork), but beauty sometimes requires sacrifice!
But these nails aren’t just gorgeous, they’re practical! Need to pick a lock? No problem! Have to poke the holes in the top of a mason jar for the kids’ fireflies? You’ve got it covered! Ran out of skewers for your shish kabobs? No need to run to the store now! The possibilities are endless.
Blue is really the perfect choice for stiletto nails in a daytime look. If you went with a red, you risk looking like an extra in Fangtasia on True Blood. Pick a beige and nobody will notice you. But with blue, the hand brings to mind Cinderella’s Castle, doesn’t it? That’s a like a fairytale come true!
But the trend isn’t just for a natural, everyday look…
Pinterest Nighmare #552b: The Wedding Stiletto Nail
Obviously, you’ve got to look your best on your wedding day. Stiletto nails add that perfect touch and are an absolute must for a bride who wants to stay on the cutting edge of fashion (literally). Look at the detailing! Flowers and pearls all come together perfectly on a French manicured stiletto. It brings one word to mind. Elegance, amiright?
The groom is definitely risking impalement as he slips the gold band on her finger, but that’s a small price to pay for such demure beauty on one’s wedding day. Just don’t refer to the bride as a Bridezilla. She could puncture your jugular with very little effort.
Pinterest Nightmare #552c: The All-Out Fully Decorated Stiletto Nail
This one is taking the stiletto nail to the ultimate level. It’s not for amateurs. You’ve got it all: super sharp shape, length of an eagle’s talon, vivid colors, glitter, intricate artwork, and even the rare pinkie corkscrew. It’s like the Swiss Army Knife of manicures!
Have you ever seen something so exquisite?
Oh, Pinterest. No…just no.
