The 50 Best Coffin Nail Ideas For 2018-2019
So what’s a coffin nail? For as long as people have been getting manicures, there have been two primary shapes: round and square. We are ready for different nail designs. Rejoice, fellow nail addict, because we finally have something new. Coffin nails, or sometimes ballerina shaped nails, are a trendy new look for manicures. They curve in almost to the tip where they’re squared off to create visual interest and edge. If you’re sick of plain round nails and the formal look of square nails, coffin nails are an excellent in-between look and this year’s best trend.
Our first coffin nail idea is a space-age shimmer design. Use a shimmery mother of pearl polish on most of your nails for a futuristic glow. On the accent nails, load up on glitter and rhinestones in the same mother of pearl shade for a rainbow effect within some serious sparkle.
Pastel Pink is a great neutral color, but don’t stop there. Use negative space to create little designs in several of the nails for visual interest. You can use big or small stripes, chevron patterns, or x shapes, but everything coordinates well because the forms are just a clear coat. It’s a pretty workplace manicure without the office politics.
If you’ve ever watched ballet, one of the most beautiful pieces of their style is the shoes. Those pretty pink shoes we all wish we had are the inspiration for these ballerina shaped nails. Keep the shade a soft pastel and use a matte shade for some serious drama. Classy and elegant.
We all want to be Daenerys. She’s powerful and gutsy (and still alive). Make the same bold choices with your manicure by using her Dragon family as inspiration. Integrate solid greens with glitter and rhinestone designs for a manicure that’s light-catching and eye-catching. The different nail designs coordinate because of the edgy green.
