STEP BY STEP: NEGATIVE SPACE NAILS

Daring, dark and half nude; spice up your nails with the latest negative space nail look.

1. BASE COAT
Start by applying a base coat that will help polish go on smoothly. Select a heavily pigmented nail polish and decide on the negative space pattern you’ll be creating with it.

2. NEGATIVE SPACE
For precise application, make sure that your nail polish brush has a straight end to it – trim it if necessary – and rest your wrist on a flat surface to steady it. Apply with gentle and thin coats, building up coverage. Shapes should be angled for that geometric effect.

3. CLEAN UP
Pour some nail polish remover onto a Q-tip to remove any polish that may have gotten onto your fingers.

4. FINISH
Let your nails dry completely and then seal the look with a long lasting top coat!
