If you call second form with
Form2 frm2 = new Form2();
frm2.Show();

and close the loginform.Close();

This will close both.

Instead I would suggest you open frm2 as default and its load event will have login form with

LoginForm login = new LoginForm();
login.ShowDialog();

if the login is success frm2 will show itself otherwise will show message and if login is closed frm2 will be closed as login form will return false.

I can say open login form as dialog with two button Login and Cancel

LoginForm login = new LoginForm();
login.ShowDialog();

put DialogResult property for Login button as OK and set login button as OK button.

please refer to following article for dialog:

and put your code in Login button click event to open your second form
