The extra long nails filed in a sharp style are not for everyone due to their edginess, but you can adapt the length of the nails to suit your personal style as well as needs. Stiletto shaped nails require a higher maintenance than other nail shapes, as the sharp tip of the nails chip easily when subjected to high pressure, so make sure you adapt the shape and length of your nails to your lifestyle.

If you have a lot of activities which require you to work with your hands a lot, go for smaller size stiletto shaped nails, but if you don't, you can go bolder and opt for the extra stylish long stiletto shape which is a definite hot point of attraction. The longer the nails, the more necessary it becomes to apply a gel top coating as extra long stiletto nails cannot hold the shape without enforcing the strength of the nails with gel. Gel nails look hot and are increasing in popularity due to the long lasting effects offered. The nails and the nail art designs created on gel nails last up to 4 weeks, but a professional application is required.
