#shortnailsdontcare : Nail art Ideas for Small Nails

I am a girl with very tiny nails, literally small. If I chop them off they might look like nails of a three year old. But, I am a sucker for nail art and nail polishes. The way I decorate my nails, sometimes it leaves people bewildered and wondering how something like this can be done on small nails.


Smalls nails or tiny nails also have scope of beautiful nail art, you just have to be open for creativity after all #shortnailsdontcare.  Here are few fabulous nail art ideas for small nails. 

1. Pretty polka dots

Polka dots can be as small as you need them, making them the perfect addition to a short nail mani.

2. Sliding scale of color

This is a tried and true trick for short nail manicures. Just pick a color palette and go wild!

3. Accent flower

With short nails, a full floral mani would probably be too busy. This accent is the perfect balance, though. 

4. Gemmed up 

Look how adorable this is! Pink polish with an accent gem looks great on shorter nails! 
If pink nails are your thing, be sure to check out the next nail design on this list.

Pink is the perfect base for a short nail manicure. Add a few sparkles and a little accent, like this black and gold bow, and you're all set.

8. Bright and bold 

If you have to pick just one color for those short nails, why not make it hot pink? It's bright, bold, and totally beautiful.

9. Cute confetti 

Confetti is an adorable design that pairs well with shorter nails. Paint the base black for the look you see below, or try painting them white for something with more of a pop.
