One of the most popular trends of nail design represented in the fashion shows for 2015 was the negative space manicure. To inspire you to try it we have collected 15 greatest variations of this stunning nail design and 3 diy ways to make it at home.

The opportunities of negative space nail design are endless:  from simple crescents, hearts, grids, crosses, stripes and other geometric variations to complex nail designs that combine patterns, freehand drawings, contrasting color combinations and 3D objects. Such an incredibly versatile nail design matches any age and style, looks great in any color, nails lengths and shapes.

There are 3 ways to create a negative space on the nails.

  1. The first and easiest one is to use an adhesive tape. Pieces of tape are applied to the nails in the desired form (diamonds, squares, zigzags and stripes) and the rest part of nail is varnishing. Not allowing  varnish to dry completely you should remove the tape. It’s done!
  2. The second way to create a negative space nail design is to apply a varnish to the entire nail, and then, with a brush dipped in acetone, remove some nail polish leaving nude spaces. Needless to say, that this method has significant drawbacks: it’s difficult to create a smooth clean lines and there is a risk of blur. But for the simple designs this method is acceptable.
  3. The third way could be difficult for beginners. Negative space on the nails could be simply drawn. You can start with the simplest option. For example, the nude space of ​​the nail may be in the form of a small triangle. To make this nail design  indicate the desired contours of the triangle by brush and paint over the space around with lacquer. One more idea for freehand nail art is to draw some lines or dots.

Negative space manicure is ideal for those who prefer minimalist nail design, but at the same time wants to try something new, attractive and fashionable.
