Trend: Negative Space

InStyle has dubbed this next craze the cutout dress of the nail world. The negative space nail trend was translated from the well-known art technique onto model’s hands for Fashion Week, but the trend can easily be recreated at home. The look doesn’t require a base color and gives the illusion of polish floating against your naked nail bed. Half-moons, one of the most popular negative space styles, can be created using hole reinforcement stickers as stencils and a nail polish corrector pen to smooth any uneven spots, making the outlines of the crescents sharper. Or update a traditional French manicure by painting your tips in the same color polish as your half-moons for double the pretty. When trying these techniques remember patience is key, your nails are like tiny canvases and require a proper amount of time to dry for best results.
