7. Coffin Nails

Coffin nails have emerged as one of the trendiest nail trends on Instagram, thanks to the countless celebrities who have flaunted this statement, including Halsey, Ariel Winters, and the Kardashian sisters, especially Khloe and Kylie. It appears that the popularity of coffin nails has outshined the stiletto, emerging as the next BIG trend.

The shape appears much like a coffin, which requires to give the sides a strong tapering, while the top must have a super-straight edge. Experts believe that not everyone can flaunt this statement because it requires a great deal of hassle with its high maintenance upkeep and unnatural length.

Unless you have a dramatically long length, there is no way you can rock this shape with natural nails.

8. Pointe Shoe Nails

You can imagine his nail shape as the softer and subtler sibling of the stiletto, and it has earned its name from the top section of the pointe shoes worn by a ballerina, which feature subtly convex sides with a straight tip.

You can easily replicate this refreshing nail statement by filing your nails into a seamless oval shape, and then, giving the tapered tip a squared edge.

This nail shape can be rocked only by women who naturally have super-strong and rock-like nails, otherwise, you will find yourself getting gel or acrylic overlays to give your nails the strength to avoid them from breaking up. If your nails are overly brittle, this shape is clearly not for you.
