Go here to find out how to recreate these nails on your own!

The new Texas Lone Star Collection has been inspired by the fashion trends on the runway; where white is the new black and brightly coloured botanical prints, relaxed trousers and jackets, fuller and longer skirts have become the new fashion genre.

PIC: Katy Perry is the latest star to join the ‘Stiletto Nail’ trend!

Katy Perry is the latest celebrity to be seen sporting the ‘Stiletto Nail’ trend! She tweeted the picture above, along with: “Nails for the day… This took 4ever to type.”

The long, tapered and sharpened nails are becoming increasingly popular amongst celebs, with fans like Rihanna, Fergie and now Katy Perry!

“It’s a very dramatic,” Irene Nahon, owner of the FiFi Nail Salon in midtown Manhattan told the News. “It’s definitely a hot look. Not for the conservative or for the office.”

Not all nail salons in the city will know exactly what a “stiletto nail’ is yet but most can help you choose the length of your tip and file it down to the exact amount of pointiness you desire.

You can choose your polish or add jewels and pick any kind of wrap you like. Once the nail is set with UV gel and wrapped, your talons are permanent.

Total cost: Around $120. The most popular color? Black.

One reason women seem to like the stiletto nail is that it elongates the fingers and hand, Jamie Ahn, owner of Acqua Beauty Bar and Townhouse Spa in Manhattan told the News.

A downside? Injury.

“People have to be careful,” says Ahn. “You can really poke yourself in the eye. I’ve seen it a lot more times than you would think.”

“Men don’t seem to like the look much either,” she added.

What do you think – do you like them? I’m not a fan, personally.
