Ballerina nails have a square rather than a pointy tip. They’re called ballerina or coffin nails because the shape resembles a ballerina’s slippers.

But while some people think ballerina and coffin nails are the same, other nail enthusiasts believe they’re not. The difference usually given between them is that while the tips of coffin nails have flat and sharp edges, while ballerina nails have soft and subtly curved edges.

Writing has always been a part of me. From writing stories as a young child to studying Communication Arts in the university, it has always been more than a medium of expression to me.

And then one day, I found myself toeing the path of an entrepreneur and becoming a fashion enthusiast. This made me develop an interest in content marketing and copywriting which I've been chasing alongside my fashion career.

That aside, when I'm not sharing style articles, selling with stories, or sketching fashion-forward pieces for Ria Kosher, you'll find me telling wild stories that always come with a twist.
