Frequently Asked Questions

Can You Do a Coffin Shape on Natural Nails?

Yes, technically. But it may take a while to grow your nails long enough to shape them into coffin nails. 

You’ll also have to shape your nails once they’ve grown out. However, be careful with how you physically shape them, as too much force may damage your nails.

What’s the Difference Between Coffin and Ballerina Nails?

Ballerina nails and coffin nails are sometimes used interchangeably, but they do differ slightly in shape. The key differentiator is that the ballerina nail shape has a flat tip with rounded edges and the coffin shape has a flat tip with flat, sharp edges.

Hence, ballerina nails may look bigger or wider than standard coffin nails.

What Do Pink Nails Mean?

Many people associate the color pink with womanhood or femininity. They can also symbolize lightheartedness and positivity or showcase a person’s nurturing nature.
