Hey shortie ;)

Today’s blog is inspired by nail art on short nails. I recruited some guinea pigs aka friends who wanted their nails done and a few said to me oh my nails might be too short. That’s not the case though, yes some nail art needs a longer nail but not always. Here are some of the nail art I created on their nails . . .

These are my friend/guinea pig Sinead’s nails . . .

She decided on one hand bright colours and the other darks and metalics.

I hope you have enjoyed this blog and have more confidence in trying out nail art if you have short nails. If you want any information on what I used or would like a tutorial on any of the above nail art just let me know! 🙂 I hope to blog another post like this after the weekend and I do some more friends/guinea pigs nails!
Lots of love
