But with these short coffin nails, you’ll get the perfect canvas to unleash the creativity in you, using colors, patterns, and designs to add a zing to your outfit.

Be The DIY Queen You Were Meant To Be
Nail care is fun, but manicures can cause your claws to get brittle and cracked.
We can’t have that!
This summer, get ready to get in the mood with colors and patterns that scream “THAT girl”—and do that with confidence with this nail care bible in your arsenal.
How to take care of our nails and keep them in their prime—here’s the only 101 you’ll need:
- Massage your cuticles with cuticle oil before you hit the hay. It offers hydration to the cuticles, prevents breakage, increases circulation to strengthen the nail bed, and improves the appearance of your nails. You can also apply it to freshly dried polish to give it a lasting shine and keep your mani from cracking.
- Instead of using a cotton ball or swab to clean up messes outside the cuticle line, use an angled brush dipped in nail polish remover (acetone) on the target area to remove the unwanted bits, and you’re good as new!
