How to shape coffin nails:
Coffin nails are best if you have longer shaped nails. To start shaping your coffin nails, you need to flatten out the top of the nail with a file. The top of the nail should be a square shape rather than a round shape. Once the top of the nail is flattened, you can start shaping the sides.
