Is this different than kaunis?

Yup! I read somewhere that there is more of a difference in Finnish between nätti and kaunis than between the English pretty and beautiful, and that the volunteer contributor team therefore has decided to keep these separate.

Nätti is more diminutive and/or "cute" than kaunis. In practice, you might sometimes use either, but you might also offend someone by using nätti as it might sound belittling.
