Trend Report: Long Nails
Pop stars like Adele and Rihanna have been sporting long, almond-shaped nails for years, but now they’re popping up on red carpets, runways, and even Celine’s F/W 13 ad campaign. So go ahead, give it a shot.
Lana Del Rey
The singer takes her retro look very seriously—Veronica Lake-like waves, a heavy liquid cat eye, and pointed talons a la Elizabeth Taylor.
Even if you can’t pull off Miley’s midriff-baring new style, you can emulate her impeccable hair and makeup. It’s impossible to go wrong with glowing skin, bold brows, and a classic red manicure.
Perry matched her nails to her sequined Dolce & Gabbana dress at this year’s Met Ball.
While she favors glitz and glam when it comes to clothes and accessories, Beyonce usually keeps her long nails painted a solid color.
Gomez is in the midst of a Miley-like makeover, with bubblegum pink talons and the studs to match. (Try Gomez’s own Nicole by Selena Gomez Nail Lacquer ($7) in Naturally.)
When pointy feels witchy, follow Rihanna’s lead and try a square edge.
Fergie dipped her sharp gold nails in glitter to match her sparkling dress at the Logo Awards.
Steinfeld matched her nails to both her event—Comic-Con—and her outfit, an eyeball-covered Kenzo dress.
