Nail Technique: How To Create Stiletto Nails
Step 4: File nails using the method of your choice. You will find that there’s a lot less filing required with stilettos because less product is used and most of your shaping occurs while sculpting.
Step 5: Buff the nails to a high shine and use your favorite UV top coat or finishing gel. Apply oil to the cuticles.
Note: If you’re sculpting stiletto nails using gel, make sure to cure the nails after you build each layer.
