Thank you! Do you mean the clamp? No you don't need it to do stilettos. It just helps hold the shape so the nail doesn't flatten out while curing.

Also, these are almonds, not stilettos Smile

Thank you, I know they are not stilettos but im interested in learning how to do them and i've never tried before because I dont have that demographic of clients that wear them. However I still want to learn how to do them and I was told that there is a tool to use when doing the stilettos and I just thought that was it. Is that the same tool to use or is there a different one?

There are also several tweezer type tools on the market. Look up young nails magic wand for an example.
