Different Types of Manicures For Short Nails, Montreal Manicure

Raise your hand if you have ever expressed regret over having short nails at the salon (I have). But just because your tips may no longer extend all the way out does not limit your manicure options.

Short nails offer ample opportunities for creative nail design and colors that look great. Here are a few of our favorite short nail manicures.

1. French Manicure

The French manicure is a timeless classic that suits any occasion and nail length, especially shorter nails. Additionally, this look works particularly well on women with darker skin tones as its classic approach uses white polish on its tips and nude for the rest of the nail.

Add details such as glitter or nail art for an updated take on the traditional French manicure. Alternatively, opt for bright yellows or oranges as eye-catching accent colors that exude energy.

2. One-Color Manicure

A one-color manicure is an effortless look perfect for short nails. Choose a single shade for an understated and sophisticated appearance or go for something bolder with gradients to accentuate their length and show them off!

“Dita nails”, named for burlesque performer Dita von Teese, feature negative space over the lunula–the half-moon or crescent-shaped white area at the base of each fingernail. You could add some feminine flair by painting each top nail a different hue for added fun!

Nail pearls have become an increasingly popular trend and add both color and design. You can easily place these timeless accessories all over your nails for a playful effect, or cluster them at the base of each nail for added sophistication.

3. Nude Manicure

No matter your taste or nail length, this style works beautifully on nails. Choose a shade that complements your natural skin tone before using playful polka dots for an eye-catching finish.

Try creating a marble effect using complementary hues – like this manicure which features peach and pink shades with gold lines at the base of each nail – this look will definitely turn heads!

Dita nails, named for burlesque performer and half-moon manicure enthusiast Dita Von Teese, is an exciting variation on the French Tip style. Simply paint the tips of your nails in bold hues while leaving an open area over the crescent-moon-shaped area at your cuticle (known as the lunula).

4. Half-Moon Manicure

Moon nails offer a unique variation to traditional French manicures. First popularized during the 1920s when women believed staining only half their nail plates allowed their nails to breathe better, moon nails are an innovative and fun way to add an interesting element.

Make a striking, modern statement with this manicure by applying lighter polish to the top of each nail and then carefully drawing a crescent-shaped crescent shape with fine-tipped brush to form darker crescent shape. For added flair, outline it with either gold or silver polish for an eye-catching finish!

Try a negative space half-moon manicure by applying dark polish to the base of each nail and leaving an open space at the tip for lighter hues to fill in. This makes the look more subtle and chic, making it great for shorter nails.

5. Geometric Manicure

If you love nail art but prefer more understated designs on short nails, opt for geometric nail art. Perfect for daily wear and with many different color and geometric shape options available – geometric manicures make a statement in style and versatility!

Dita nails, named for burlesque performer and half-moon manicure enthusiast Dita von Teese, feature negative space along the lunula for an eye-catching twist to classic nail colors such as red. It looks particularly striking against this backdrop.

Tape to make geometric designs on your nails, then paint over with another color to give your manicure an eye-catching and eye-catching new look!

6. Ombre Manicure

An ombre manicure occurs when your nail polish gradually transitions from light to dark shades, creating an eye-catching style. Perfect for short nails and any outfit.

Make an impressionful statement with an ombre design! Get creative and experiment with milky ombre or holographic nails; this trend was made popular by Hailey Bieber, and can add sparkle and flair to your nails!

Another fantastic ombre option is brown ombre. Perfect for winter or autumn wear, this look will make your nails stand out and standout from the competition.

7. Geometry Nails

Some black women opt to keep their nails short due to professional or lifestyle considerations; this doesn’t have to be at the expense of style!

Geometric lines are a timeless style for short nails. To achieve this look, begin with your desired base coat color before using a striping brush to paint straight lines in a contrasting hue using straight lines as guides.

Negative space manicures are trending this season, so add them to your geometric nail design for added oomph and modernity. Doing this will add yet more sophistication and chicness.
