Baby blue nails are soft, ethereal, and completely feminine. I love this color on any nail shape, but it looks best on coffin nails. I used to worry about overpowering the color with patterns and textures, but powder blue is such a versatile shade.
Finding the right coffin baby blue nail design depends entirely on my mood. A lot of women think this color is strictly for spring and summer. I disagree. Ice blue is a wintery color too. Baby blue nails work year-round if you know how to dress for them.
Thinking about hopping on this color trend but not sure how to wear them? Here are some of my favorite baby blue designs for coffin nails.
1. Baby Blue Tips With Cloud Accents
These whimsical square shaped nails feature baby blue french tips with cloud accents. The fluffy white cloud details give them a dreamy quality. I love the natural nail peaking out beneath the base of these press-ons. Super cute! Buy these nails at Etsy.
2. Glossy Baby Blue Coffin Talons
If you love an extra long coffin, these baby blue nails are perfectly feminine. The pastel blue softens the talon-like look of the nails while maintaining an edgy vibe. These would go great with jeans or a royal blue dress. Buy these nails at Etsy.
3. Baby Blue Charm Nails
Coffin nails are often thought of as elegant and mature, but these adorable charm nails break all the rules. I love the sweet little baby blue decals, and that bow steals the show. Buy these nails at Etsy.
4. Daisies for Days on Baby Blue Coffin Nails
Daisies are such a feel-good flower. Paint them onto a blue nail design, and you’ll have sunny days in the palm of your hand. I love the little gemstone centers on the daisies. Adorbs! Buy these nails at Etsy.
5. Alternating Baby Blue Nails and Holographic Butterfly Tips
I love a clear tip on a press-on, and the love intensifies when you add glitter. These holographic butterfly tips go so well with a solid baby blue nail. It works perfectly on a coffin-square crossover-style nail. Buy these nails at Etsy.
6. Iced Flame Marble Blue Nails
These frosty talons would give Elsa a run for her money. The multi-blue-hued marble gives it a flame-in-ice look I adore. The added gemstones enhance the ice theme. #brrr Buy these nails at Etsy.
