There was a time when square and stiletto nails reigned supreme, but these classic nail shapes have since been toppled by squoval’s sharper cousin — the coffin nail. Coffin-shaped nails resemble the bottom half of a coffin (morbid, we know) and offer a tapered end without the sharp point of a stiletto nail. They’ve become increasingly popular in the past few years and are a versatile option for most lengths. With that in mind, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite coffin nail looks ahead to inspire your next set.

In the Nude

Sometimes the best coffin nail sets are the simple ones — like this look from California-based nail tech @josephnailsart. The soft nude shade and rhinestones are understated yet glam and sure to earn you compliments wherever you go.

An Ombré Dream

With baby blue trending and ombré never going out of style, this combo @nails_feed__ posted is one we’ll be copying ASAP.

Matte for You

A classic French tip gets a clean, crisp finish with a matte top coat and an elegant ombré blend. The extra-long length ups the glam factor too.

Purple Punch

If you’re not afraid to go bold, this lavender set with a glittery, encapsulated accent nail was made for you. We’re obsessed with the gummy bear decal on the ring finger.

Cool Cat’s Eye

For something understated yet glam, try this golden cat’s eye set by @nailsbycookie. The rich warm tones and bold gold decals make this a neutral manicure you can’t miss.

Seeing Red

We can’t resist a classic mani like this set by @henrynails1990, featuring matte red polish, and a sharp coffin shape.
