Short Oval Nails for Women Over 50: Discover the Latest Spring 2023 Manicure Trends for Mature Women

by Stephanie Yankova

With all the up-and-coming trends in nail art, it can be hard to keep up with them, let alone choose a favorite! From bold animal patterns to neon nails and intricate designs, the list goes on and on. While it may be fun and exciting for the younger generations to switch up their nails according to the latest viral nail craze, this may not always be the case for the more mature women. Long stiletto nails and vibrant colors are definitely not the go-to for most women over 50. However, I’ve made sure they don’t feel left out of the latest spring nail trends! Short oval nails are becoming a significantly more desired option amongst the older beauty audience, which is why I’ve selected some of the most modern and elegant designs for you to bring to your next nail appointment!
