More often than not, little turns out to be much. Simple and plain nail polish could end up giving you all the edge.

Tip: Matte colors are often the best for these everyday looks.

4. Ladybug Nail Design


Ladybug the design to go if you are looking for a cute short nail idea. The best thing about this design is that you can change it up in several ways and keep the ladybug effect.

Go with this design, better still, get creative!

Remember to use a dotting tool for the polka dot.

Here’s a fun nail idea even beginners can do. Floral nails are always in season and you don’t have to be good at drawing to replicate this. It’s all about the negative space and your creativity!

Pale pink and light lemon yellow nails are neat, but they are even more refreshing when blended with some ombre design with palm trees nail art. If drawing is your thing, hand paint the trees and the birds.

Otherwise, go with stickers or nail wraps.

7. Abstract Short Nail Design


Go for abstract nail designs when you have run out of nail art ideas. Adding a vague touch to your nail design adds more sophistication than you think.

Tip: Abstract art can easily look messy. Follow and order and keep it to a minimum.

8. Mix and Match Short Nail Design

Can’t settle for one polish color? Perfect. Life is too short for uniform colored nails. You have the option of going all out or settling for polish colors in the same spectrum hence a more subtle look.

9. Fruity Short Nail Designs

Fruit nail art has been trending for some time now. Want to get into the trend but with an out of the box fruity nail approach?

An avocado nail art idea will do that for you.

Tip: Opt for stickers if you can’t draw.

10. Bling Short Nail Design

Who said bling is for long nails only? You can still flaunt bling and rhinestones with short nails. The trick is to go for the small one and incorporate them into your short nail design.

Tip: Use a needle to stick the bling or rhinestones to avoid messing up the nail polish.

11. Camouflage Short Nail Design


Fancy patriotic nail design? You are in luck. I especially love the camouflage nail art design because it is not only outside the box but is also unique in that you do not see it every day.

Clearly, there are more short nail designs that you can imagine. Get into your painting and nail art gear and have fun trying out these designs! Oh, also discover more from these inspirations!
