Until quite recently, we did not know such a thing as shellac. Now, this convenient manicure tool leaves few people indifferent. Agree, for almost a month to carelessly wear a beautiful manicure, without making any effort, is more than tempting. Today we will talk about shellac design for short nails.
Basic principles of manicure for short nails
Neat pens will always be beautiful, even if the nails are not varnished. The cuticle must be removed, the nails filed to the same length. By the way, nails of small length will give out a difference even in a millimeter, so be careful. There can be no talk of burrs, we remove them regularly.
The shape of the nail also plays an important role. The square looks great on long nails. For short ones, choose an oval.
Drawings on nails of small length should be mostly vertical. Too large or small details will not look, volumetric drawings are generally prohibited.
The same applies to volumetric elements. No need to lay out flowers from the gel or any other shapes. On short nails, they are completely unnecessary.
You can choose any shades of varnish, it does not spoil the appearance.
Design options for short nails
