Negative space nail design: "naked" manicure
Make an original manicure, while demonstrating all the beauty of natural nails - perhaps thanks to the negative space design, which I will tell you about today.
In everyday life, I try to avoid negativity in every possible way. But there is something that made me see the negative in a positive light. I'm talking about the "negative space" manicure, a new design that leaves parts of the nail unpainted to add depth and texture to any manicure.
This is definitely good news for those who come to the manicure master and cannot decide on the design and color of the coating for a long time - you are already wearing the most relevant color of the season : this is the color of your natural nail. It remains only to add a few details! :)
Combining painted and untouched areas on one nail, it seems as if the pigment is floating on your nails. The main idea of such a "naked" manicure is that the less is the more, minimizing the amount of unnecessary details, and drawing attention to clean lines and graphic forms. I hope I didn't confuse you. :) After many seasons of acid shades, 3D manicures, chains and sequins on nails, negative space is like a breath of fresh air. After all, such a design can be worn even in the most conservative offices.
This manicure reminds me of open-toed shoes! :) It only shows a hint of what lies underneath and proves once again that the look of a natural nail will never go out of style.
One of the advantages of this manicure is its versatility. It is suitable for any age and style. You can use any color and any pattern, making the possibilities endless. In addition, negative space looks equally good on short and long nails.
But keep in mind that such a manicure design focuses on your natural nails, so it is important that it looks as well-groomed as possible.
In addition, such a manicure leaves no room for error when it comes to nail polish. After all, given the minimalism of this design, everything must be done perfectly.
The key to a negative space manicure is color choice. If you are a fan of nude light shades, this is good. But in the case of a “transparent” manicure, richer, darker colors can better emphasize the empty space of the nail and clear lines.
I love this manicure not only for beauty, but also for practicality! After all, the time of wearing such a design is longer than that of a regular manicure, because, in most cases, the tip of the nail is not completely stained.
In order to make a negative space manicure, there are a lot of available tools, such as tapes, stickers, dotters and brushes. I prefer to create beauty on your hands with a brush, but to each his own. :)
In order for you to be inspired by the negative space manicure too, I have selected for you some stylish designs that you will surely like.
This stylish manicure in pastel colors will highlight your spring mood. And the curves of the picture resemble flower petals, as for me, it looks very gentle and romantic.
And if you want to add more modernity to your pastel manicure, just make a black outline around the edge of the picture. This will add clarity and expressiveness to the design, and emphasize the contrast between the coating and the color of the natural nail.
The negative space design with a matte effect looks very unusual. But in order for this manicure to look advantageous, your hands must have a very well-groomed appearance.
Game with tips
Despite the fact that this design is a kind of french manicure, but it looks sharper and more modern. For a more manicured look, I suggest first covering your nails with a clear base coat.
Despite the fact that such a design looks very original, it is not difficult to execute, as it does not require too clear lines. This means that you can easily make it yourself at home.
Two trends that are so harmoniously combined in one manicure: chrome and negative space
All at once
If you want to stay in trend, but are not ready to part with a bright, eye-catching manicure, then there is something for you! :) This design has everything: bright color, rhinestones, lines and dots. And, of course, the actual negative space.
Sometimes, you just need to add some sparkle to your life. Luckily, nude manicure ideas can easily be transformed into ombre manicures, which look especially good with glitter.
I hope you have found interesting ideas for a new manicure, which I will be happy to help you bring to life! :)
