The beauty landscape is ever-evolving, with new trends emerging regularly, especially on social media platforms like TikTok. Women are always on the lookout for the next big thing, and these platforms serve as a hub for all things trending.

One such current trend making waves is the ballerina nails, a unique take on stiletto nails. Unlike stiletto nails, however, ballerina nails have a square tip rather than a pointed one, making them look less dramatic.

More women are switching to ballerina nails as they want a softer-looking shape that looks good with either a fun design or a natural shade. Ballerina nails are perfect for those who prefer natural-looking long nails, especially with tips.

If you already have an almond or coffin shape and want to switch things up, transforning your nails into the ballerina shape is easy.

This trend has been spotted on celebrities on the red carpet and influencers on various social media platforms. Due to this, there are many style inspirations available for this manicure; how you choose to do them depends on your personal preference.

One approach is to use a nude color, such as pink, cream, or a light brown shade, for a romantic nail style. Another option is to go for soft French manicure, applying a light cream shade and accentuating the tips with a thin white line.

Shaping ballerina nails requires some finesse, but luckily, many tutorials on YouTube, Instagram and TikTok can show you how to get this done easily. One tip for achieving the ideal shape is to file the nail lightly to create the coffin look but stop when it begins to look too narrow. When filing the tips, make sure to avoid being too rough, as ballerina nails are supposed to have a more natural look than coffin nails.
