Short nails are *it*, according to Selena Gomez, Olivia Rodrigo, and Sofia Richie.

Something is noticeable if you click through Instagram and TikTok or recall Hailey Bieber's "glazed donut" manicure. 

Long, almond-shaped nails are trendy for months. This nail length and shape are appealing and allow for eye-catching color

and elaborate designs, although shorter, square-shaped nails are also alternatives.

Selena Gomez, Olivia Rodrigo, and Sofia Richie have shown that fall nails are short.

 All these celebrities and more have debuted short, sleek manicures, catching our attention. Should I grab the nail clippers? 

Rita Remark, celebrity nail artist and Essie's worldwide lead educator, says yes. "I've definitely noticed a return to shorter, sportier lengths," she says. 

"After this summer's dramatic trimmed lengths, it feels simple. When a trend lasts long enough, an opposite reaction occurs. 

 Shorter nails are more popular for that reason. We're ready for change." Scroll for celebrity inspiration and short nail color tips.
