Dreary winter days got you down? Perk yourself up by experimenting with a fun nail design complete with a funky nail shape that you haven’t tried before. While there are a bunch of different shapes to pick from, one of our personal favorites is the coffin nail. Coffin nails are similar to the stiletto nail, except the tips are square rather than pointy and round. If you need more convincing, check out some of the coolest coffin nail designs for winter, ahead. 

Trendy Tips

ICYMI, brown is having a moment in beauty right now. Lean into the trend by recreating this manicure that seemingly offers two nail shapes in one. The almond-shaped curves on each coffin nail give an optical illusion that’s incredibly unique. 

Festive Fingers

These nails are great for someone who wants to incorporate the holiday season into their mani without going over the top. With minimal reindeer detailing and a nude pink polish like Essie’s Bare With Me, this mani can be rocked long after the holiday season has passed.

Holographic Hands

If you prefer to keep the designs to a minimum but want something that you won’t get tired of, consider holographic acrylic nails. Can’t make it to the salon? Try out these press-ons on Amazon for a quick and easy manicure that will emanate different colors depending on the lighting around you.

Festive French Tip

Put your own twist on a classic French tip by adding stripes of a bright red polish, like Essie’s Russian Roulette. Incorporating the unexpected detail elevates the manicure and makes it a little bit more festive.

Winter Wonderland

We’re obsessed with this sleek yet seasonal manicure. It’s reminiscent of a cozy patterned sweater – except edgier thanks to the matte black finish and blunt square tips. Complete the look with a few strokes of Essie's Matte About You Finisher, a mattifying top coat.
