In short (pun intended), I love the way short burgundy nails look! They’re chic and stylish, and they add a touch of color to any outfit. While at the same time, they are subtle, easy to maintain, and don’t require a lot of upkeep.
I mean, just look at these burgundy nails…
But, before you run into your nail salon, you should read below!
Most Popular Short Burgundy Nail Designs –
1. The Solid Color
This is the most popular and classic of all the short burgundy nails designs. It’s simple, yet effective and always looks good. To achieve this look, just paint your nails with a solid burgundy color. No need for any fancy designs or anything like that. Just a nice, clean, solid color will do the trick.
2. The Glitter Accent
If you want to add a little bit of sparkle to your short burgundy nails, then consider adding a glitter accent. To do this, simply paint your nails with a solid burgundy color. Then, take a small brush and add some glitter to one or two of your nails. This will add just a touch of sparkle and will really make your nails stand out.
3. The Ombre Effect
Ombre nail design is a popular trend right now, and it looks great on short burgundy nails. To achieve this look, simply paint your nails with a light Burgundy color at the tips and a dark Burgundy color at the base. Then, use a sponge or brush to blend the two colors together. This will create a beautiful ombre effect that is sure to turn heads.
4. The Matte Finish
If you’re looking for a more sophisticated look, then consider going for a matte finish. To do this, simply paint your nails with a solid burgundy color. Then, once the polish has dried, apply a matte top coat. This will give your nails a beautiful, matte finish that is sure to impress.
5. The French Manicure
This is a classic manicure that looks great on short burgundy nails. To achieve this look, simply paint your nails with a light Burgundy color. Then, use white polish to create a small tip at the end of each nail. Honestly, it’s not something you’d see a lot, but I guarantee this will give your nails a beautiful French manicure look that is sure to turn heads. Small tip… if you really want to make a splash, have the tip in gold, because burgundy and gold is a match made in heaven!
Which Shapes Would Make your Burgundy Color Pop?
Now that you know some of the most popular short burgundy nail designs, it’s time to choose the right shape for your nails. Here are some shapes that would really make your burgundy color pop…
1. The Round Shape
If you want your burgundy color to really stand out, then consider going for a round shape. This is a timeless nail shape that always looks good. Plus, it’s easy to maintain and won’t require a lot of upkeep.
2. The Square Shape
Another great option for short burgundy nails is the square shape. This is a sharp and clean nail shape that always looks chic. And with the darker hue, it will really make your nails pop.
3. The Short Stiletto
This is not a mistake… I’ve written before about short stiletto nails as it is not the ordinary combination you’d see too often. It is a daring nail shape that is sure to turn heads. If you’re feeling bold, then consider going for a stiletto shape.
4. The Almond Shape
This is a beautiful and unique nail shape that is sure to make your nails stand out. Unlike the stiletto above, here we’ll keep the edge rounded which gives it a more subtle and romantic look.
5. The Coffin Shape
This is another daring nail shape that is sure to turn heads. If you’re feeling bold, then consider going for a coffin shape. While coffin nails are usually medium in length, when done short, they somewhat remind us squoval nails though with a square top.
At this point, between all of the ideas and designs, you should pretty much know what kind of manicure you’d want, the only question is how…
How to Get the Perfect Short Burgundy Nail Manicure?
There are a few ways to get your perfect manicure, from the top-to-bottom DIY version to the short burgundy acrylic nails or gel nails. Each has its own pros and cons.
Do It Yourself (DIY) Version
The first option is the DIY route. This is a great option if you’re on a budget or if you’re simply looking for a more personal experience. Plus, it’s always satisfying to be able to say, “I did this myself!”. And for beginners, short nail designs are a great starting point.
Just make sure you have all that you need before you begin 🙂
Short Burgundy Acrylic Nails
The second option is to get your nails done at a salon. This is a great option if you’re looking for a more professional manicure. Plus, it’s generally quicker and easier than doing it yourself.
However, acrylic nails can be pricey, so make sure you’re prepared to spend some money.
Short Burgundy Gel Nails
The third and final option is to get your nails done at a salon with gel nails. This is usually the most expensive option. Gel nails will last you 2-3 weeks without chipping or peeling, and are considered a healthier more natural option compared to acrylics.
Keep in mind that gel nails require UV light to cure, so make sure you’re prepared for that before you book your appointment.
The Bottom Line
Now that you know all about short burgundy nails, it’s time to choose the perfect design for your next manicure. Just remember to have fun and be creative! There are endless possibilities when it comes to nail art, so don’t be afraid to choose one that will reflect your personality. Have some fun!
