An efficient strategy to produce forests of aligned nanowires and nail-like microstructures, whose density can be tuned in a broad range, is reported. It combines electrodeposition in nanoporous sacrificial templates and partial masking of a surface with a self-assembled colloidal monolayer. The fabrication of omniphobic surfaces comprised of metal micronails whose density is varied to approach high contact angles is demonstrated.
