Those with a passion for flare and exhibiting it with stylish long nails have another reason to let their imagination run wild. Also called “Ballerina nails,” their flat tops and long tapered shapes are back on the top trends list. The timing couldn’t be better because there are so many attractive designs from the lengthy decadent look to the shorter and, dare we say, “practical” appearance.

French Tip Coffin Nails

The French tip is beautiful and always has a classic feminine look. It is especially applicable to coffin nails. Be sure the white portion extends a little further down than normal to achieve a balanced tone.

Dramatic Gradient

This is the perfect solution to an attractive contrasting color and dimension without it actually looking like you did anything at all. It’s very covert.

Sexy and subtle is the best look for all kinds of extravagant and “practical” nails.

Rosy Nails

Coffin nails are typically a strong and edgy look that can be a little overpowering if amplified with wild patterns and bright colors. You can try taking the shouting match down a few decibels by transforming your coffin nails into a lovely pink shade. This will underscore your powerful look with a calm feminine appeal. Take this to another level by using the same soft rosy pink on your lipstick as well.

Dripping in Gold

Could you achieve a more opulent look than having one or two fingers drip with solid gold? Complete the look by painting the other nails creamy white or black.

Baby Blue Nails

Baby Blue Nails 

If your nails are already long and attractive, you may find that muting them with a pale shade of baby blue or another pastel perfects the rest of your look. This is a great way to show off your favorite collection of delicately stacked rings.

Sparkly Accent Nail

If you are going to accent your nails, make it a deep salacious and exotic one. There are rhinestones, Swarovski’s, crystals and glitter polish of all colors to choose from.

Accents are a good option to achieve a stunning special look, without hitting the gaudy and overdone zone. A great way to accent nails is to make one nail on each hand a different color from all the rest. Take this idea to another level by adding tiger stripes, plaid or lace patterns. There’s a wide variety of printed options as well.

Gold Glitter Nails

Modernistic but still very classic and totally trending today. Take your holographic metallic nails to another level with a strong shape.

Matte Nails

It’s always fun to play around with the look of your nails and a good way to do this is with the final textures. Rather than the usual glossy top coat, consider a matte look that makes an even better background for that accent nail.

Nude Coffin Nails

Subtle, bold and still amazingly stylish. More and more people are going for that nude look and it makes a great option for more formal functions.

There are many options for 3D looks. Ask your nail tech which options and specialties they provide. You could go for a flower arrangement, special cut gemstones and a wealth of other options as well.

Transparent Coffin Nail Design

When it comes to achieving the perfect nails in relation to the rest of your look, it is often best to choose a quieter look. Transparent is a perfect option to contrasting a variety of different colors and styles. Just place a strip of masking tape over a small portion of the nail when painting and pull it off just before applying the top coat. You can also make the entire look transparent as this is trendy and attractive as well.

White Tip Coffin Nails

If you want a chic look, try combining the classic French-tip with an ombre style. These have also been called baby boomer nails and are an especially sophisticated look that looks great for many occasions.
