Kardashian/Jenner Inspired DIY Stiletto Nails

Elegant Touch Totally Bare Stiletto 003 False Nails, Barry M Matte Nail Varnish in Vanilla

To mark the start of summer I thought what better thing to do than get some claws on my fingers in the form of stiletto false nails. I 100% underestimated how difficult it would be to perform everyday tasks with these monstrosities on and that is after I spent over an hour filing them down to a manageable length. 

They were relatively easy to apply (after spending 5 minutes and some help from my dad to open the bottle of nail glue) by applying the glue directly on the nail then pressing on the right size nail for 4 seconds until bonded. From then on they have all stayed put! I then spent an awfully long time filing them down to a length I was comfortable with however this is entirely up to you whether you want to carry out that step. I've tried to keep the original stiletto shape however some of them have turned slightly rounded but I won't lose sleep over it.

Next I applied two coats of my favourite nude nail varnish - Barry M Matte in the shade Vanilla. Its great for wearing to school and work where you're not allowed nail varnish as it is a perfect natural colour. It is long lasting and doesn't chip which is essential for an everyday nail varnish. 

I 100% recommend the false nails and nail varnish to anyone wanting to achieve the stiletto nail look for a fraction of the cost and get nails on par with the likes of the Kardashian/Jenner sisters. What do you think? Would you try these yourself?
