 Deep Purple with Glitter Accents

If you’re feeling bolder, try a color that’s not often seen for a coffin manicure. It’s unexpected and charming and is perfect for a special occasion. This shade looks equally beautiful with short or long coffin nails. If you’re going for a more romantic look, attach burgundy glitters on the ring finger. Then, use a buffing tool to smooth out any edges on the sides. The shape is pretty forgiving, so don’t worry if they’re not all exactly alike.
