100 + Styles for Coffin Shaped Nails to Rock This Summer

Don’t be fooled by their spooky name – coffin shaped nails are not only beautiful, but also the biggest manicure hit for summer 2018! This gorgeous style is also sometimes known as “ballerina nails” because of their very specific shape – long and oval, with square tips, reminiscent of a ballet slipper or, well… a coffin. Some people even refer to them as “squoval” – a made up word, combining square and oval. But whatever you choose to call it, one thing is certain – this manicure trend can be seen everywhere these days. It’s favored by fashionistas and celebrities alike, and it’s easy to see why. Coffin shapes offer a perfect blend of bold style and unique design. They are a great solution for long nails, and can be achieved through artificial (acrylic) or natural means.

Matte nail polish compliments coffin shaped manicures very nicely, as it adds a lovely velvet-like texture. Not only is it irresistible to the touch, but it instantly draws all eyes to your fingertips. The classic glossy look will always be popular, of course, but if you want something refreshing, unique and just a little extra, matte polish is definitely the way to go! When it comes to color, lighter shades are very sought after at the moment. Nude pink and beige, pastel candy colors, and sparkly metallic hues are only the few of the most popular choices. For those who prefer darker options, cherry red is definitely the most favored look, closely followed by black and navy blue.

Another popular look for coffin shaped nails is the so called “baby boomer” manicure. This cool style is an updated version of the hugely popular French fade nails, and consists of pale nude pink bases and milky white tips, combined with a gentle ombre effect. They are usually accompanied by subtle acrylic details and generous amounts of iridescent glitter. Baby boomer nails were named for the eponymous post World War II period that saw a vast increase in population. Classic red nail polish and French manicure were the most popular choices among the more style-conscious ladies of the era.
