1. The galaxy nails
You might already be familiar with that amazing and very popular galaxy nail art trend, which translated into designs for clothes and makeup too. And you’ve probably only seen it on long nails. Well, we want to inform you that this beautiful design also looks very cute on short nails. Moreover, it might look even more natural like this because you can see the little stars better. To create that design which imitates a galaxy, simply use the tip of a toothpick and play with colors and shapes, after first applying a black nail polish base all over the nail. Finish it off with a clear top coat.
2. The marble nails
Again, where have you seen marble nails? Of course, on long nails! We usually don’t like to repeat ourselves, but in this case, we need to. The marble nail design looks equally incredible on short nails too. Actually, this is a delicate design that’s mostly destined for brides and a bride won’t probably want to wear some extremely long nails during her big day when she wants to be comfortable. This is the perfect alternative for such an occasion. You can also add some gold geometric shapes over the marble design to make the manicure even more special. Apart from this, color combinations are allowed too, like a nude or a light grey simple nail, combined with the beautiful marble design.
3. The dark nails
It should not be a shock for anyone that dark-colored nail polish looks the best on short nails. And you don’t have to listen to rock and metal to wear such a manicure. Dark nails have now entered the classy territory and are more popular than ever. Don’t want to be too goth at the office? Choose dark shades of purple, blue, or green and leave the black for other occasions.
