Matte coffin nails are highly popular, and there are so many reasons why. One of the main reasons is because they combine two already existing trends, the shape, and the matte finish. And when you join the two, what can you expect? A popular choice that women adore and always personalize to their own tastes.
How to make coffin matte nails
Firstly, you need to do is to decide upon the length. Secondly, if you want long nails, you will need acrylic constructs. Opt for a color that represents you. Depending on the occasion or personal preferences, create designs and apply decorations. Lastly, apply that matte finish.
Below we present some gorgeous ideas that you can use as inspiration, so scroll down to discover them.

21. The Nude Nails
What are ballerina nails for if you can’t flaunt them in nude shades? Anything from a matte pink blush to matte ivory – whatever suits your skin tone – is a perfect way to highlight coffin nails. These nails are very understated and classy, although if you are headed out for a party, you might want some other style. For a romantic date or an evening at the opera, matte nude nails are the way to go.
22. The Adam’s Family Nails
In the pre-nail art era, long nails were viewed with a suspicious eye. If you have coffin nails and are sporting enough, paint them matte black. This gives a distinctly voo-doo look to the nails and is sure conversation-starter. Coffin matte nails in black are in fact, quite the rage on the runway too.
23. 3D Nail Art
Matte coffin nails by themselves can be quite boring. But if you are not very keen to glam them up too much either, you can choose to incorporate a 3D nail art form on them. This adds texture to the nails and breaks the monotony. You still look classy, but with a hint of playfulness.
24. The 5-Nail Ombre
Another way to rock matte coffin nails is to paint all the five nails in advancing ombre nails, as seen above. Ideally, this pattern looks best of you to choose some striking shade – burnt sienna, red or purple – so that the contrasts are starker.
25. Matte-and-Glitter Combo
If you already have matte coffin nails and are on your way to a party, you can save time, by simply wiping off one nail in each hand, and painting on a glitter nail polish. This has the same effect as wearing jewelry! Alternatively, you may also choose to add the glitter nail polish on a portion of a matte painted nail, preferably by using a color blocking technique.
26. The Geometrical Matte
Instead of painting the coffin nails in traditional swipes, you can use your matte nail polish to create a geometrical pattern on the coffin nails. Geometrical patterns come out nicely on coffin nails, considering that you have a greater surface area to work with.
27. The Matte-and-Rhinestone
This is another quick fix to muted matte coffin nails. Glam them up by attaching rhinestones. The glitter of rhinestones complements the light-absorbing effect of the matte nails, making the nail art stand out remarkably. Using a dark matte base is a brilliant way to incorporate rhinestones.
28. The Deep Blue
Although regular deep blue nails also eye-catching there is something other-worldly about blue matte coffin nails. A rich navy blue adds a level of depth and texture to the nail, while the matte finish prevents distractions in the form of excessive gloss.
29. Simple Ombre
Having long, coffin nails is the best way to showcase your ombre-creating talents. With a canvas as long as the coffin nails, you can bring about the transition in shades beautifully. Matte coffin nails have this distinct advantage over shorter nails. Incidentally, if you are planning on getting sunset nails, go for this style.
30. The Sparkle Effect
Instead of adding rhinestones, you can also dust a little glitter on the nail tips or at the cuticles. An ideal combination would be a dark plum base and gold sparkles. Alternatively, you can also choose to pair the glitters with a light shade, although that would be a good idea if you were out on a daytime occasion. When the sun sets, go bold with the contrast.
Matte coffin nails are a style statement. They may not be hard to pull off, but often women get carried away with the available canvas of the nail and end up with a garish nail art. If you are not sure whether your nail art is pretty enough, go for a matte finish. It is safe and can be easily tweaked.
