Coffin nails are also known as “ballerina’s nails” because they resemble wooden pointe shoes or coffins. However, they differ from the traditional square shape in that the tips of the nails are slightly narrower with a flat edge.
If you’ve been paying attention to nail trends, you’ve probably noticed that coffin nails, like almond nails, are trendy right now. Even when they’re not trending, most celebrities wear them regularly. Because of their length, some consider this style to be better for nail veterans, but that shouldn’t stop you from trying them.
