Inspiration to Up Your Short Nail Game at Home

Long manicures may have graced the runways the past few seasons but as coronavirus spreads and washing our hands becomes more important than ever, so does the need for shorter nails. Allowing you to properly clean away any germs or bacteria that may be harboring beneath your talons, it’s time to get out those nail clippers. Although we’re all about a beauty detox during this downtime, for those who want to get a bit creative there’s plenty of inspiration out there.

The Simple Solution

Looking to add a little something to your classic manicure? Work with a single shade to add abstract objects. No need for symmetry, but do stick to a similar shape.

Paintbox Pro

If you don’t want to play by the rules then this look is for you. Using a brush or sponge, apply every shade of polish you own for an arty feel.

Earn Your Stripes

You can’t go wrong with animal print. Whether you opt for leopard, zebra or giraffe create your own unique look.

You’re A Star

You never need an excuse to give yourself a star, or many. Work with a neutral base and work with a variety of colors for a look that pops.

Eye See You

You may be at home, but all eyes are on you with this nail art based on the evil eye. Switch things up on each nail adding metallic detailing or moving its positioning.

Over The Rainbow

We’re all waiting for brighter days. Whilst we do why not draw inspiration from one of earths happiest occurrences, a rainbow?
