Hey! I think that depends on the person, but mine are acrylics. The nail technician just used a nail clipper (like how they usually do to shorten the applied nails) and clipped them into a point. So he clipped both sides of my nails to make an angle. Then he filed them into a smooth point. The tips are not sharp BTW, they are slightly rounded so that I don't hurt myself.
Dagger nails aren't for everyone, but I'm in LOVE! Men and women have been complimenting me. Strangely enough, men have been using them as a conversation piece.
So, if you get these nails expect ppl to comment on them. Dudes think they're awesome. IDK, I LOVE them!
