For this design, we recommend using royal blue polish. As a good alternative, you can consider prom royal blue coffin nails, or add rhinestones to create a royal blue design with diamonds. Apply one or two coats of polish, depending on how opaque you want the final result. Use a sponge to dab the polish onto your nails to get the glitter effect. Start with a small amount of polish and build up the glitter until you are happy with the look. Finish off with a top coat to seal in the design.
Gel coffin nails
If you want your glitter royal blue coffin nails to last longer, you can opt for gel polish. Gel nails are cured under UV light and last longer than regular polish. They are also more resistant to chipping and peeling. To apply gel polish, start by shaping your nails into a coffin shape. You can also shape gel in the proper form and length, as long as your know-how. Then, use a base coat to protect your nails from the color. Apply the color in thin coats and cure each layer under UV light. Finish with a top coat and cure once again. Your nails will now be solid and glossy!
Acrylic coffin nails
Acrylic nails are another option for those who want long-lasting nails. This type of nail is made from a mixture of powder and liquid, which is then applied to the nail bed. Acrylic nails are strong and durable, so they are perfect for those who are hard on their hands. To use acrylics, start by shaping your nails into a coffin shape. Then, use a base coat on the entire nail. Next, dip a brush into the acrylic powder and liquid mixture and use it on the nail bed. Build up the product until you have achieved the desired thickness. Finish with a top coat and cure under UV light.
Glue-on coffin nails
If you want to achieve the look of coffin nails without using any chemicals, you can opt for glue-on nails. These are fake nails that are glued onto the natural nail. Glue-on nails are available in many different shapes and sizes to find the perfect fit for your nail bed. To apply, start by cleaning your hands and nails with soap and water. Then, remove the adhesive backing from the fake nail and press it into place on your natural nail. Hold it in place for a few seconds until the glue sets. Repeat with your fingers, and then file the nails into a coffin shape.
