When we saw the Cuticle Nails for the first time, we were immediately blown away. It was love at first sight! Because this nail design looks not only beautiful on short nails but is also very easy to imitate. The individual glitter particles come strung together at the bottom of the fingernail and have to dry well until a transparent topcoat provides a good grip.
Although there are nail stickers for a long time, they are still a classic. Especially for those who are a little heavier with the painting of their fingernails. If you choose to use gold or silver stickers, you can turn your short nails into glamorous eye-catchers with this nail design!
Colorful Nail Design
We love patterns. No matter if dots, triangles or asymmetric squares – the nail design with pattern optics lets our short nails shine in all possible colors. Here you can let your imagination run wild.
Fingernails with clouds
We have always been a big fan of cloud motifs and are therefore thrilled with this nail design. And to be honest, clouds are much easier to draw than cats or other motives.
With this nail design, you bring a cool mix to your short nails.
These are very thin adhesive strips, which are perfect for striped nail designs, but also for more complex contours, these are very useful. You glue it on your fingernail and paint over it. After drying, you take off the adhesive strips and the striped look is done. If you do not want to buy this Pinstriper extra, you can do it yourself. One option is Tesafilm or crepe tape. The tape is the better alternative because Tesafilm does not always adhere well.
The Newspaper Nails is clearly the perfect nail design for all bookworms with short fingernails. This one has her favorite book or favorite newspaper always with it – of course only in the figurative sense, because this one must sacrifice the desired pages.
And this is how it works: Paint your fingernails with a light color and let it dry well. Keep each nail in a glass of alcohol for at least five seconds (alcohol is enough to disinfect). Then you take the desired newspaper and put the arbitrary place with the writing down on the fingernail. Dab it gently – here it is important that the paper does not break. Remove the paper slowly and let the paint dry again. Fix with a topcoat at the end.
In order for great nail designs to show off perfectly, the right nail care is important. Because those who often paint their nails, must also take care of them, otherwise, they will be fragile. To prevent the whole thing it is better if you take a break of about 2 weeks between painting, so the nails are not attacked so much and stay nice longer. If they still get brittle, there are extra nail hardeners in the drugstore that can help. If you have dry fingernails, nail oil is a perfect choice. It’s best to massage the oil in the evening and leave it on overnight. The next day your nails will look much better again.
