For those of us who are blessed with naturally long nails, getting any type of nail art is easy! Since there is so much space on the canvas to design art on. So what are we supposed to do? We short nail girls want fun and fashionable nails too! With the constant stream of crazy nail art being spit by all the talents on Instagram, we don’t blame you for wanting the crazy glass shatter nails, or the famous chrome nails!
Gel nail extensions are one way to extend and elongate your nail, this way is very common and many people get their nails extended using tips, or at Prép, sculptured extensions. You can read more about sculptured gel extension here! But for some of us…life just isn’t that easy. With work and school dress codes, long nails just might not be the best idea! We totally understand- for the safety of others right?
And that’s why today we’re here to give YOU some inspiration on short nail ideas! To ensure they don’t chip and last for at least 2 weeks before you get the removed and redone, we recommend coming into Prép for a gel polish manicure!
Compared to a regular manicure, gel manicures have a quick, almost instant dry time. Since it’s cured in a UV or LED lamp, theres virtually no time to ‘dent’ your nails!
Now let’s skip onto some of the nail inspo we have for you today!
