The other day I got sick and tired of looking at my plain old boring nails. This is summer dang it, we are supposed to be embracing the bright colors and pretty designs. So, I went on a search for summer nail tutorials. Unfortunately, while a lot of them are gorgeous, they are also super hard to do and are for people with really long nails. How many moms do you know with long nails? I did find a few great summer nail tutorials for short nails though that were simple and pretty, so I wanted to share them with all of my other mom friends too.
1. Colorful Short Nail Tutorial with White Designs
This one is simple, but really pretty and bright. I love that is can work with any length nails and that you could basically use any color combination that you wanted to change it up.
2. Summer Sunset Nail Tutorial
This one is really easy, it just requires a bunch of colors, but it is a great option for those who don’t want to do fine details and it can work for long or short nails.
3. Pink with Yellow Flowers Short Nail Tutorial
This design is a little harder since it does involve details, but with a toothpick it really isn’t that hard to do at all. Word of advice though, let the bottom coat fully dry before using the toothpick to make the designs or it is going to mess up the bottom coat.
4. Neon Water Marble Nail Art Tutorial
The woman in the tutorial has long nails, but with water marble nail art, it doesn’t really matter if you have long or short nails. If you have never seen water marble art before, it is awesome and pretty simple to follow, but can be messy. Definitely tape your fingers first!
5. Easy Two Tone Summer Nails with Dots
This is a simple two tone tutorial for summer and then you just make dots in coordinating colors. Definitely good for short nails and you could use any color you like.
