- UV gel nails are durable and provide a natural look. They require a bit of time to apply, but the results are worth it!
- Acrylic powder coffin nails are also durable and provide a natural look. You need to have acrylic powder and polymer and know, how to work with these materials, but they do require a bit of time to set.
- Ready-to-use ABS plastic press-on nails are the easiest to apply, but they are not as durable as the other options.
If you want to achieve the blue short coffin nails look, we recommend using UV gel or acrylic powder. These materials will allow you to create the sharp, clean lines that are necessary for this design. Now that you know what material you will be using, let’s move on to the next step: creating the perfect blue shade!
How to create perfect blue shades on your nails
The most popular colors for coffin nails are nude, black, and, of course, blue! For this design, we recommend using a light blue shade. This color will provide contrast against your skin tone and make your nails pop! If you want to add a bit of sparkle to your nails, you can also use glitter nail polish. We recommend using a blue glitter polish that is similar in shade to the light blue polish you will be using. Now that you have chosen your materials and colors, it is time to start creating your design!
- Paint your nails with a base coat of clear nail polish. This will protect your nails from staining and help the color adhere better.
- Next, apply two coats of light blue nail polish to your nails. Allow the first coat to dry completely before applying the second.
- Once your nails are completely dry, it is time to add glitter! Apply a thin layer of blue glitter nail polish over the light blue polish. We recommend using a sponge applicator to avoid getting glitter everywhere!
- Allow your nails to dry completely before applying a top coat of clear nail polish. This will help the colors last longer and prevent chipping.
And that’s it! You have now created the perfect blue short coffin nails design. We hope you enjoyed this tutorial and that you’ll be able to replicate the process.
Additional design elements
If you want to take your design to the next level, there are a few additional elements you can add.
- You can use tape or stickers to create sharp, clean lines. This will give your nails a more polished look.
- You can also add rhinestones or other embellishments to your nails. This is a great way to add some sparkle and personality to your design!
- If you want, you can also paint the tips of your nails with a different color. This is a great way to add some contrast and make your nails truly unique.
In conclusion, blue short coffin nails are a trendy and chic nail design that anyone can achieve at home with the right materials and colors. We hope you enjoyed this tutorial and that you’ll be able to replicate the process with ease!
