First of all, an almond, oval, square or squared shape is advisable to emphasise smaller nail dimensions. This way, your fingers will look slimmer no matter how long you decide to keep them. Rounded shapes, on the other hand, tend to shorten further, and the more extreme ones such as ballerina and stiletto do not suit short lengths. Once you have chosen the shape that best meets your needs, all that remains is to choose which design to make.

monochrome manicure

The simplest option is a monochrome manicure, ideal for an elegant and neat result. Yes to evergreen colours such as red, black and nude. The latter, in particular, creates the illusion of an elongated nail bed. You can embellish your look by applying small luminous rhinestones near the cuticles for a super chic effect. Yes also to pastel shades. Their delicacy lends itself perfectly to small sizes.

Do you prefer to range with colours? Mismatched nails are made for you! It is a multicoloured manicure perfect in any season. All you need to do is choose the right shades! A different colour on each finger is a perfect way to enhance short lengths, brighten up your style and cheer up your day. If you can't make up your mind, rely on the rules of armocromia.
If you love unique finishes, try glazed or metallic effects, both of which are easy to achieve using pigment powders. The two finishes add grit and personality, giving an extra boost to your style. Keep in mind that an excessive amount of decorations on short nails could be tacky.

Negative Space

Can't resist decorations? Opt for minimal and essential solutions, such as geometric figures. If you want to create the illusion of more room on your nail plate, play with Negative Space. This technique consists of intentionally leaving empty spaces and only applying colour to certain areas. Another useful trick is Nail contouring, that is, leaving the side edges of the nail bed blank to make it look longer.
