Can be user with both. Examples: У нас осталось мало воды. ("Вода" is uncountable noun) У нас осталось мало огурцов. ("Огурец" is countable noun. Compare with: "У нас осталось два огурца").

with both ones , and without nouns Мало не покажется it will not look not enough ( here it means troubles , difficulty, hardship - very common expression) А ему всё мало ( he always want to get more ), Мало по-малу step by step similar word Маленько - Дай мне маленько семечек . and as not rough slang Mалёхо
