Ombre coffin nails are a long nail shape that is much longer than your standard length painter with graduating colour. They can often be marketed as coffin nails or stiletto coffin nails, but the shaping of the two styles is actually slightly different. Ombre nails are the latest way to paint your nails and are a little like balayage for hair, and offer a funky effect depending on what you’re looking for. That’s why we’ve put together this article to introduce you to our favourite ombre coffin nail trends for 2022!
What is a coffin nail?
A coffin nail is a type of nail shape. Coffin nails are also known as ballerina nails. They are often confused with stiletto nails because they look really similar. The difference between coffin nails and the stiletto nail is the way that the tip is finished. A coffin nail is squared off to resemble a coffin or the chopped off end of a ballerina’s slipper. Stiletto nails are pretty dramatic and spiked at the end to resemble the spiked heel of a stiletto shoe! Famous celebrities who love their coffin nails are Kylie Jenner and all of the Kardashian clan. Khloe Kardashian is everywhere at the moment since her new amazing revenge body was unveiled. Her nails are long and spiky at the moment in a stiletto crossed with a coffin nail style.
How to shape your coffin nails?
Before you start, cut the tips of your nails with a small nail cutter. If you have acrylics or gel nails, then they will need to be removed before shaping. You can remove them by soaking in acetone for 10 minutes. If not, then use an orange stick to scrape off the top layer of your natural nail with a 45-degree angle to the cuticle edge. Shape your nails one at a time so that you don’t mix up their sizes.
