If you’re looking for ways to change up your ‘squoval’ shaped nails for an updated flair on a classic French manicure, bring your nail game on for the New Year with coffin nails for a glamorous celebrity inspired statement.

Whether they are coated in pastel nudes for a feminine look or are embellished with shimmery metallic tones, this nail trend gives you luxurious, elongated talons to complete your evening look.
