You’ll definitely need to plan out your manicure before diving in. There are many different ways you can do short nails and designs, but you want your manicure to look cohesive and professional when you’re done.

There are also some great nail stickers on Etsy. I love purchasing nail stickers, especially for short nail manicures, because you don&#;t have a lot of space to work with. I do my base coats, add the stickers, then seal everything with a top coat.

Otherwise, you’ll want to check with your nail technician to be sure they can accomplish the design you’re looking for. Every nail design is unique and requires various techniques.

Slightly Frozen–esque in inspiration, we're head over heels (or should we say fingers?) for this iced and edgy nail design.

09of 30

Top 25 Beautiful Short Nail Designs

Are you a fan of shorter nails? A lot of women love to show off their natural & neat manicures, which is why women often get gel manicures!

Short nails are also super easy to maintain as well as do on your own.

Not too sure if short nails are for you, or if they can be as beautiful or attention-seeking? Keep on reading since we have over 25 different and unique designs for you to explore and choose from!

Who Should Go For Short Nails?

Shorter nails can be worn by anyone! However, their major advantage is that they are long-lasting as well as easy to do at home. There is no reason to get acrylics or nail tips since you can enjoy gel manicures or your regular nail polish! Usually, shorter nails are worn by women who:

  • Prefer low-maintenance nails
  • Women who work out at the gym
  • Women who do a lot of house chores or errands at home
  • Workaholic women who prefer simple and neat nails

Also, younger women as well as teens and kids will love shorter nails. Only women who dislike this kind of manicure are women who have a special and formal event ahead, and they want something dramatic, bold, as well as attention-seeking.

How To Get Short Nails?

If you want to wear short nails and you want to get them on your own make sure that you are equipped with the right set of tools. What tools?

  • A nail or gel polish
  • A UV lamp (if you are working with a gel polish)
  • Nail clippers
  • A nail file

Step 1: Cut your nails to your preferred and ideal size. Use a pair of sturdy as well as high-quality nail clippers.

Step 2: Shape your natural nails to your favorite shape. You can go for an oval, square, or stiletto. Use a nail buffer and move it over your nails times to remove any dead skin layers and to get that additional shine!

Step 3: Prepare your nails with a nail base. Add one layer of this product and let it air dry or cure it under a UV lamp for 2 minutes.

Step 4: Now it is time for that fun part &#; color! Add your favorite gel or nail polish over your nails. Go for two layers and let them dry.

Step 5: Set your manicure with a topcoat. It will prolong the lifespan of your nail polish and will give you a lot of shine!
