I’ve always been someone who shied away from trends and “must-haves” from the fashion and beauty world. Mainly because they tend to be expensive or designed for someone that looks very different than I do (ie: long skinny fingers for stacking rings, thick blond hair for beachy waves). So when I heard from one of our Brooklyn friends, nail artist Jessica Washick, about doing another DIY nail tutorial, I had a request: can we do something for those of us with short nails? All of the gorgeous nail art I see popping up in Instagram feeds around the world seems to be modeled solely on people with mega-long (to me, anyway) nails, so I asked Jessica if we could do something fun with short nails in mind. And she came back with a winner: black and white cat nails!
Jessica explained that, with short nails, “you’ll want to focus on the base of the nail. This enhances the length that you have and the nail art will look neat no matter how short your nails are!” I’m miles away from anything resembling a nail salon these days, so I’m excited to try this DIY at home over the weekend. Turk needs to know that despite being a 2-dog family now, he’s still our main man.
