7. The Ombre Effect

Do we even need to say something about the Ombre effect? Hair, clothing, nails – it’s like it’s everywhere. For this short nail manicure design, you need to first paint your nails a pale pink. Next up, on your makeup sponge, apply colors from blue to purple in progression, just so when you dab it on your nails, it will create you the desired Ombre effect. Then clean off any extra nail polish on your fingers with a Q-tip and dazzle up the finish with a coat of glitter.

8. The Pink Autumn

This short nail manicure will get you in all your feelings. Start with a pastel pink base, and black polish on a nail striper, then use it to create one side of a leaf on your ring finger. Proceed using white polish, and then do the same for the other side of the leaf. To add a little cherry on top, coat on some silver glitter where the black and white meet. For all the remaining nails, make stripes and polka dots using the same colors.

These were all the nail looks you can try this season to make your short nail manicure beautiful and put those other long nails to shame!
