5 Instagram Nail Art Ideas If Your Digits Are Short
Since about 2011, I've been in love with wearing nail art. Be it a minimal line of negative space or a full-on Harajuku 3D work of art, I've spent hours and many dollars having my digits decorated. And like many other nail art enthusiasts, I show off my designs on Instagram. But I have to admit, I felt sad (and a little insecure) when a stranger commented on one of my manicure photos, "Ugh short nails!"
Before then, I had never thought much about my close-cropped fingernails. As someone who types all day and loves to cook, keeping them short makes the most sense for my lifestyle. I didn't realise I was disappointing the greater Instagram community. After the initial sting, I let the comment roll off my back. I'm pretty into natural beauty, so I doubt I'll ever get nail extensions. And you can bet I won't stop wearing creative lacquer designs.
So, I encourage my fellow short-nail-wearing friends to celebrate our minicanvases. Keep reading to see how women with short nails like mine prove that good things (heck, fantastic things!) come in small packages.
