Icy-hued pointy nails have been the dominating style in mirrored manicures, even before they got the name! The most famous moment of this manicure was during the RuPaul Drag Race when popstar Lizzo sported the icy stiletto to compliment her white stone-studded rings. Nail stylist Eri Ishizu created those nail-daggers by using Apres Gel-X long Stiletto extensions and Apres Non-Wipe Glossy Top Gelcoat. A polish of Japanese nail brand Ageha’s MAG Powder created the final mirror finish. The good news? You can perfectly recreate the manicures with your own colors and polishes only!
