Stars like Beyonce, Rihanna, and Fergie have all been spotted on the red carpet wearing super sharp, pointed nails. While the look seems to fit these fierce ladies, is it really practical? 

I have seen this trend more and more in magazines and in the media, but I have yet to spot the look on anyone in the real world, and I live in NYC so that’s saying a lot. 

Rounded nails used to be a huge trend in the 1960s, think Barbara Streisand in Funny Girl (below), but have been since faded out thanks to the more modern looking square nail. Some people still chose to file their nails round, but rarely do they go as extreme as the divas mentioned.

I can’t imagine such long, sharp, nails would make it easy to do everyday things, either. Buttoning your pants, texting, hooking on a bra, and putting on jewelry can’t be easy. Perhaps this look is better left to the stars and to those of us that can afford someone who will do all of those things for us.

What do you think of this trend? Would you wear pointed nails like Beyonce?
