Ballerina nails (also known as coffin nails) appeared in the nail industry in the late 90’s. However, they have become extremely popular for the last few seasons. They look very feminine and require efforts and imagination to make them look exclusive and extravagant. Let’s talk about this outstanding nail shape a bit more!
What is ballerina/coffin nail shape? To create unique ballerina/coffin nails, you will need to grow long nails as the shape won’t be interesting on short ones. And one more important aspect is that they look even better when you have false acrylic nails rather than your own. So, the shape reminds of a coffin or a ballerina slipper and that’s the reason they got their name. It’s not so difficult to make this shape as the only thing you will have to do is to narrow the nail sides and to make the tips flat. That’s all! Now you have an interesting nail form that can be decorated in any way you want!
What nail designs are the best for ballerina nails? Well, when you’ve become the owner of this gripping nail shape, it’s time you thought about the design.
