The pointed nail has the effect of giving that slender look to the hand overall which appeals to the feminine feel. It also has another advantage in that people with small hands too can sport Pointy nail designs. It gives the feel of length in the process.
To take on Pointy nail designs it is but natural to have nails shaped to a point. The process starts with form sculpting using acrylic, a process that is best left to professionals if you aren’t too sure of it. This is followed by shaping which is another time taking process until the desired length and shape is achieved.
Apply a layer of clear acrylic primer and then dip the nails in acrylic powder. Once the acrylic and powder dries off, buff and file again to rough out the edges and perfect the pointed shape.
It is only after this that the first polish of the desired color is to be added. Any design idea that you have in your mind can also be implemented at this stage. Let the nails to dry after the final application of the polish and there you are, your perfect ‘pointy’ nail design is ready.
