I decided to try stileto for the first time.
Just did my pinkie thinking that's all I can handle.

dont want to put a downer on you flower - but they would have looked better if the length of the glitter free edge was shorter - they look abit unbalanced to me. also a stilleto is pointier (as jac extreme said). sorry flower. other than that, you got a serious shine going on there, did you buff or clear varnish?

As I stated earlier,this was my first try. There is a room for improvement, thanks for guiding me in right direction.As for making them pointier,for some reason picture makes it more round than in real life.
I used Akzentz Top Gloss Clear , no buffing for me.

i wasnt trying to put you down - i was giving constuctive critique - which you wanted - surely you must expect that not everyone will give you good answers if the pic dont warrant it - we all see pics different flower - and i just went on what i saw

the color is fab (it reminds me of opals) but as Pan mentioned there are faults, something i noticed is, there is either a dip (or an abrupt rise) which shows as a rise in the sidewall, you can see it in all pictures.

The hard part about colored acrylic is trying to get everything right at the same time, depth of color, smile-line, apex ... etc.

The finish on the nail is pretty fab though.

Your nail IS fantastic!!! I do on most of my clients a stilleto as a feature nail on their pinkie but I do more of point which for me looks great. The glitter - is it a Young Nails glitter and if so which one?

Gut reaction when I saw it was 'wicked' I really love the colour, and I have to say I actually like the length:lol:
Zoo nails put it much better then I could have about the bump, but it is slight and probably due to it being your own pinkie, dammed hard to get the filing right :lol: but love the smile and the colour is what seems to be in every shop window in London so very 'in'
