Nail art is a beautiful thing, and so are the long nails that often accompany them. But fun designs aren't just for people with long talons — short ones can get in on the action, too. If you've decided you want to give some re-creations a go but you're a nail biter, can't grow them, or simply don't want to grow them, there are solutions. You may not have as much surface area to work with, but there is plenty of art that actually look better on shorter nails. Half moons, negative space, and striping tape designs were all made for this length.
We've rounded up some of our favorite nail designs from Instagram that make short nails the spotlight and prove you can wear tiny art regardless of your nail shape or size.
