‘When people come into the salon saddened that they have broken a nail or two and they have to cut all of them shorter, they are often convinced clear or a natural pink is the only colour they can have as a result. THIS IS NOT.

Although clear polish is classy and elegant as it is very natural, nudes and pastel colours look great on short nails, and so do dark colours. Contrary to popular belief, darker colours such as navy, dark red and even black draw attention t1o the shape of your nails and not the length. A classic red never goes badly either!

If you want to make your nails look longer, there is one technique that you should try! After applying a base coat, apply a deeper colour down the centre of your nail, avoiding painting right to the edges of your nail. This will give the illusion that your nails are longer and slender.

If you want your short nails to look nice, it’s not just about the colour, make sure to shape them nicely too!
