Nail designs are now getting the attention they deserve after long nails have been in trend for so many years. Short nails are amazing because you won’t have to struggle with the limitations that come with long nails when doing your daily activities. For instance, it is quite difficult to open a can with super long nails.
Just because you are not going for a long length of nails does not mean you cannot make a statement with short nails. Just like long nails, short nails can also be bold and dramatic, and you can achieve any design you want. Below are some cute nail designs you can try out for your next manicure.
- A Pop Red
This manicure embraces gradual change from simple to neutral and to bold with a simple pop of red polish. The extra polish in bright cherry red polish, which is done on top of a milky white base, is perfect for making a statement for holidays like Valentine’s and Christmas.
This is one of the best nail design options if you are looking to use a certain bold color polish but don’t want it on your entire nail.
- Bold Gold
Using gold nail polish is the perfect way to add a glowing sheen to your very short nails. This design is done in an oval shape, a feature that helps elongate the look of the nails while still featuring trim tips at the same time.
The gold polish used in this design is already dramatic and does not require the addition of nail art to make your design stand out. The design can be worn by anyone regardless of skin tone. They look amazing for work during the day and also for a fun event at night.
- Make it Spooky
You can comfortably come up with Halloween nail designs without wearing super long nails. You can do a themed manicure on short acrylic nails, where in this case, you paint Halloween themes on your short nails.
This design fully represents the spooky season by painting Halloween artwork such as pumpkins, ghosts, and spider webs on a neutral color base coat. You can spice up the look by painting one nail in black to make the design cooler.
- Pink and Black Simple Nails
This is the ideal option if you are looking for something feminine but do not want to overdo the artwork on the nail. Lighter shades of pink blended with simple artwork in black color make an amazing nail design.
For this design, pink polish should be used as the base coat, while black polish should be used to paint cool leaf outline artwork.
- Zodiac Nails
You can show the world what your zodiac sign is by wearing it on your nail design. The zodiac sign artwork on the nails is very unique and shows a strong personality.
You can use different colors of polishes to come up with these arts, where you can be diverse by painting a different art for every nail.
It is important to use a lighter shade of polish for the base coat to avoid shifting the attention to the base color instead of the zodiac artwork.
- Matte Black
Short square-shaped nails painted in matte black polish are nothing but incredible. The black polish gives your nails a stunning look without the need to add artwork on the top.
The design is effortless to create as it only requires painting your nails entirely in a black matte polish color. If you are someone who loves the color black, you can have fun exploring the different types of black every time you schedule a manicure appointment.
- Sunshine Yellow
Yellow nails are outstanding on their own, and they instantly improve your mood. This design is created by painting a sunshine yellow base coat and then completed by adding an artwork of a section of flower petals at the corner of every nail.
For a vibrant look and to avoid shifting the attention from the sunshine yellow base coat, the artwork should occupy the most minimal section of the nail. These kinds of nail designs are very outstanding and can never go unnoticed.
