Do you get the point?

Believe it or not, I haven't had anything on my nails since we got back from hols. This is really unusual for me, I normally do my nails all the time but I just don't seem to have the time or the inclination at the moment.  Lack of motivation aside, I love the look of pointed nails and I'm always pinning pointy pics to my Nails board on Pinterest. Unfortunately I don't seem to be able to grow my nails at all at the minute, not even a little bit.

I thought about going to the salon and getting pointy acrylics on but been there, done that. I dont really want the cost or time commitment of getting them infilled all the time plus I didn't know if the nail shape would suit my hands which sounds a bit silly but I've seen some people with pointy nails who really don't suit it. It makes their fingers look a bit stubby and odd!

With all this in mind, I bought some pointy stick on false nails from Ebay to test the waters and stuck them on with glue that I already had. Sizing and applying these was really straightforward. I then painted them with Essie Leading Lady.

I really like the look of them and it's a something I'll definitely be experimenting more with. I'm actually glad I've tried stick ons rather than shelling out to get them done professionally as although I like them I don't find the shape and length or the nail hugely practical to wear every day so this way I can just pop them on for a night out or whatever. I do live in fear of poking my eye out or catching myself with them a bit though!

What do you think about pointy nails? Have you tried them or do you hate them?
