19 Fabulous Short Coffin Nail Designs

I earn commissions for purchases made through links in this post.

Some people find coffin nails to be too long, which is why I thought that it would be helpful to share short coffin nail designs.

What’s great about coffin nails is that while they look great long, they also look amazing short too. That means you can have trendy nails without the length if that’s your preference.

There is a debate on whether coffin nails and ballerina nails are the same. Some nail technicians say they are, while others say that coffin nails are sharper and ballerina nails are more curved on the sides.

Because the shapes are so similar, I personally consider them to be the same.

Getting Your Nails Filled

After you get acrylic nails done, your natural nails will continue to grow and those outgrown parts of your nails will no longer be covered by the acrylics.

When this happens, you don’t have to worry about getting your nails redone. Instead, you’ll go to the nail salon and have them filled. Getting a fill will cover this area to match your existing acrylic nails.

If you want to keep your nails looking good, I recommend getting them filled every two or three weeks.

Getting your nails filled is an expensive way to keep your nails looking good for a longer period of time.

Take Care of Your Natural Nails

Sometimes when we get acrylic nails, we forget to take care of our natural nails. Artificial nails can cause damage to our real nails by making them weak and brittle.

To help keep your nails healthy I recommend giving your nails time to breathe once the acrylics are removed. During this time, eat healthy to keep your nails strong, wear gloves to protect your nails when cleaning, and keep your nails and cuticles moisturized with an oil such as jojoba oil or cuticle oil.
