Only long nails can be a source of pride? Today it is not. Rather, on the contrary, ladies with long nails should be careful, especially with a bright design, so as not to be considered provincial, and the owners of short ones are unlimited. Everything is available to them: bright and dark colors, rhinestones and sparkles. They do not risk overdoing it. Let's see what a fashionable manicure looks like on a short nail.
New french style
On short nails it is not always possible to do a French manicure because of the too small edge. But it’s okay if the strip with the edge goes a little on the nail bed. The main thing is to observe proportions. The basic rule: the smile line is no more than half of the entire nail bed. But for a very short length, you need to draw it very thin. Then the nail bed will seem more oblong.
In order to make the jacket fashionable, you need to set aside boring white and natural varnishes and take color.
Any harmonious combination of colors, the
protruding part of the nail with a pattern, black manicure
with a gold edge - all this is still very fashionable. Trust your taste and boldly combine your favorite shades.
Fashionable manicure for short nails: add volume
Glossy and smooth nails are always beautiful, but obviously they are a little fed up. Otherwise, why explain that manufacturers offer so many new and fairly voluminous coatings? Sand varnishes, fleece for nails, broths ... Sand varnishes at first aroused caution among lovers to decorate their hands, but now they have taken a strong place in the market: almost every manufacturer can find a collection of sand varnishes. As for broths, they are quite difficult to use. How to make a successful manicure with them? On a short nail, they really can be laid out whole, and the rest coated with ordinary varnish to match. But it is not necessary to create a solid “pie” from the broths, when you can make an incredibly stylish manicure with spikes.
The combination of various textures and patterns
Manicuring very short nails can be bold. Any drawings that will look frivolous or childish on long claws, on a strict and short square shape look completely different. Combine different patterns, combining them with one color theme, or, conversely, take one theme and present it in different ways on different nails: such a “patchwork” is very relevant.
Combinations of various shades and patterns are fashionable, but what about textures? Is it permissible to use pearl and cream varnishes, sand and glitter in one manicure? Yes! Everything that looks harmonious will be fashionable. Let's say you can take sand and cream varnishes tone on tone, and with the help of texture select one or two nails, making an actual Feng Shui manicure.
Fashionable manicure for a short nail: choose a color
As mentioned above, long and bright nails - this is very difficult. The color of “tear out your eyes” or sparkles plus a breathtaking length - and in the office they look at you judgingly. Short nails are another matter. They themselves look quite restrained, why not add a little bright color, especially since it will hardly be noticeable in the overall image? In addition, some shades of varnishes, for example, black, do not combine with long oval nails, and on short square ones they look great.
Foil effect varnishes, wine, coral, bright orange and white cream - all these options were seen during the demonstration of the latest fashion collections, and they are great for short nails.
Short nail manicure: design options
Nail design for short lengths will take no less time than acrylic painting on tips, but the result is worth it! The most fashionable design assumes that each nail will be different from the others, but at the same time they will together be a finished work.
However, manufacturers are not far behind here: minx stickers, transfer foil with various patterns, stamping - and in just a few minutes an interesting design is ready.
The only thing you need is a good taste. In addition, it should be borne in mind that a manicure for very short nails still has its own requirements. It is better to select vertical and diagonal patterns that will visually compensate for the lack of length.
Although there are no fundamental limitations here: sometimes even horizontal stripes can look very short on short nails.
