Perfect Nail Design for Shorter Nails

short nail design

I’m off to camp this week and I needed a nail design that would last me all week.  I also needed something that looked good on shorter nails because I was not going to camp with long nails.

This design fit the requirements.  Because this designs doesn’t have a base colour, it is much thinner than some other designs so that will help it last longer.  It looks just fine on shorter nails because there is nothing defining where my nail ends, unlike any french tip that would make the nail appear very short.

Now my nails are camp ready!

Her passion for nail art started at around age 11 but she never got into doing designs until this last summer when she and her family moved to Steinbach. Megan loves trying new designs out on her nails and sharing them with the people around her. She would love to pursue a nail career after grade 12 and enjoys having her own private ‘salon’ (Meg’s Nails) in her basement while still in school.

This nail design looks really great and I love how detailed the petals are and they're great colours

What a great job she has done, and it is great having designs for shorter nails, which I need to have short nails because I wouldn't be able to do my cleaning jobs with long nails. She has made short nails look just as nice as the long ones:)

Those look great! I love that the design doesn't have to look so 'clean', which means that when I make mistakes, it will be okay!
