26 Delicate Short Nail Designs

Although long pointed nails with lovely designs have their own charm, it is the short nails that find favor among most women and girls. The reasons are plenty. Short nails do not interfere with your work. Maintaining them is easy and with a little bit of creativity, you can come up with a whole range of artistic nails.

Short nail designs stand for aesthetics, practicality and uniqueness of the woman who wears them. Some of them are so simple that they can be easily done at home as they do not require elaborate, intricately carved nail art. Just a little bit of nail paint with a touch of small decorative pieces will make your short nails look more charming. While there are a whole lot of themes for short nails, it is your own personal touch that turns them into a distinct fashion statement. Varied color tones, block designs, glitters and stones go a long way in creating perfect pieces of art from nails that are short, rounded and blunt. So,what are you waiting for ? Go ahead! Paint a whole cosmos on your short nails or do them in innocent polka dots and flaunt them with a flourish.

    While most of them are ‘different’, not all are very neatly done. Slodive is known for putting up better quality pictures….
    However, I cannot help but agree with Sunalini over the fact that shorter nails are easier to maintain and also do not interfere with your daily chores.
