When it comes to the world of nail designs there is very little that caters for short nails. Everywhere you look you see long, pointy or stiletto nails, and none of the designs or nail art are suitable for shorter manicures. Which is a little unfair, don’t you think? Shorter nails may not instantly catch the eye in the same way something more in-your-face or ostentatious would but they can be much more suitable for certain situations.
Short nails are subtle, classy and elegant. But they’re also functional. You’re not going to want some long talons with jewels all over them for work, are you? That’s when a shorter manicure comes into it’s own. Smaller nails won’t get in the way whilst typing, unlike longer nails that interfere in a lot of day to day tasks. If you like to garden or do any outdoor activities then it can be tricky to keep your nails long. Or if you do they then no doubt get ruined or dirty very quickly, when smaller nails wouldn’t. Also, if you suffer from having brittle nails then you might struggle to grow them longer. Why should you be excluded from having cute, beautiful or trendy looking manicures. The same thing applies for those who might have a problem with nail biting.
Thankfully there are many options for little fingernails. Any colour will look great on short nails, but the colour you pick should be dependent on the style you are aiming to achieve.
