Why have one accent nail when you can have two or three? Rhinestones make the perfect accent every other finger in this nail design. They add glamour without the overwhelming appearance of having them all sparkle.

Red Coffin Nails

Since red can stand out quite a bit, I recommend going for short coffin nails to tone it down a bit. If you’re going out to the club, though, get glam style nails by adding rhinestones.
