Why someone chooses to look like a warm-blooded Velociraptor with hair escapes me. Oh wait...isn't there evidence that some Velociraptors were semi warm-blooded?

You know what they say about fashion trends...they all come around again eventually.

There is nothing fashionable about long clawed velociraptor nails that are so long they don't even stay straight.

Mostly, pointy nails are attractive to other women and to themselves.



Some men like long nails, others like medium nails. Most men prefer an oval or almond shape. Men differ about length and color.

Almost all, or all men who I know don't like nails with rhinestones glued on, or designs painted on.



Many men didn't like those really square nails that were popular for about a decade. The are out, or on their way out, depending upon where you live.



Really, long, talon like nails are almost universally unappealing to many men. I think they associate them with aggression and fear being scratched.



It's a reasonable fear, IMO.

I usually can't relate to men and what they like in women. They want modesty and I am drawn to sexiness. You say men don't like rhinestones or designs on nails. This is one of the rare times I agree with my fellow men. These type of prints on nails were trendy back in 1989-1990 and I didn't care for it. I was glad (and a bit surprised) that it was a short lived trend.

These pointy nails I see now look increadibly good to me. If men don't like them I think it's because they are insecure...these nails project dominance...a feminine energy type of dominance and some men get intimidated by it...not me. This is like a dream come true.

The pressures don't have to get you if a person knows themselves.
The women I most often see with the long pointy nails are not overweight. I first noticed this trend with very attractive young ladies and now it seems to be expanding to women of all ages, shapes and sizes. It's very 2019.

I see Stiletto nails as being nothing more than a fad, a fashion statement, just as in fashion and styles in clothing, what's in today, is out tomorrow, and what once used to be in fashion in the past, eventually comes back full circle.

It's a switch from the ordinary, a change or sorts, a departure from the ordinary, a chance for some to try something new.

As a woman that had very long nails for a number of years in the past, I know first-hand as to how impractical and inconvenient long fingernails can be, but women of today aren't saddled with traditional roles such as homemakers, as they once were a generation or two ago, so having longer fingernails in todays day and age works for some.

To each their own.

I've never asked my husband about stiletto nails, but dear husband loved back scratches back in the day when my nails were long, and I highly doubt he would complain if I were to grow my nails long again and style them in stiletto form.


I can see dear husband enjoying his back scratches before bed with stiletto nails, just as I can see him equally enjoying back scratches before bed with ordinary, gently rounded nails. JMTC.

Could someone explain why the pointy shape looks so attractive? Is it the danger aspect? Afterall those claws could hurt! I don't think that's it for me personally though...they just look beautiful to me.

Dude, what is going on here? Seriously.

You know nails trends from 20 +years ago???? Which is wrong btw.

Pointy nails are a dream come true? A. Dream. Come. True.

And men who don't like them are insecure??????? Say what?
