20 Fabulous Short Coffin Nail Designs

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.

Below, you’ll find a great collection of short coffin nail designs and ideas. If you find a set of acrylic nails that you like, save the image to show your nail technician.

Nude Pink with Glitter

These simple nude nails are perfect for anyone who wants a classic and elegant look. Add a little glitter to glam up your look. 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.
