Acrylics are usually long-lasting, so you will need to choose a design that you will be excited to wear for a long time. If you are working with a well-skilled and talented nail artist, you can try ideas from all ranges. Check out these cute ideas for short acrylic nails that can inspire you for your next manicure.
- On The Farm
The cow print has been a popular nail art for the longest time. The design is timeless but can be customized in personal styles to represent different personalities.
You don’t necessarily have to use the typical black-and-white color for the cow print design. You can try out personalizing the design by using your favorite colors.
You can try this fantastic idea on short square nails for a much better effect. To add more effect, ensure that the base coat is neutral to show off the bright colors on top.
- Sharp Angles
This idea is very bright but not in a dramatic way. The bright nails are cute, but you don’t have to get the polish on the entire nail.
The idea is perfect for those who don’t want to go for long or short nails, probably because of professional reasons or any other aspect of their lifestyle.
For this idea, the artist will do the bright lines at an angle from one side of the nail. You can have the base in nude color so that the angled lines stand out better.
- Nostalgic Nails
This is the perfect short nail design for lovers of hello kitty. This idea is very girly and shows the love for the fictional character.
For a minimal effect, it would be best if you wear the art on one or two fingers, but if you want a dramatic effect, you can get the art on all the fingers.
Whiteout short acrylic nails are always on trend, and you will always be on style regardless of the casual or formal occasion.
- Mismatched Manis
Painting your nail in a single polish is something that is outdated. Playing around with different color designs on every finger is best to show your creativity.
This idea is perfect if you love more than one color or you want to try using multiple colors in one manicure. You can use hues of bright colors for a more defined and impressive look.
- Slanted Tips
This is a perfect idea for lovers of nude colors. You can try swirly loops on a clear base coat using the different shades for a creative finish. You can use the loops on one finger and simpler art on the other for a less dramatic effect.
- New French Manicure
This is the perfect idea for lovers of French manicures who are unwilling to go for the traditional French manicure. You can use the usual nude and white colors since they blend perfectly.
The manicure features c-curved tips making the idea more outstanding, and you can alternate with different shades and patterns on other fingers.
- Head In The Clouds
If you have something about the clouds, this is a perfect idea, and I would love to get that into art. You can use pink and white colors to come up with the cloud art, and to add more effect; you can use 3D jewels. You can use square or stiletto nail shapes for this idea.
- Sprinkles On Top
The definitive feature of this nail idea is the artwork on top. The top may be 3D jewelry or sprinkles of white swirls.
- Mix It Up
This is a mix of marble colors; you can make it pop up with glittery shades. Mixing it up brightens up the look.
- Cherries On Top
This is another type of French manicure that is an advancement of the traditional French manicure. For lovers of cherries, you can have them done in different colors on top of a neutral base coat to brighten up the design.
