I don't know about you but minimal nails really appeal to me at the moment -especially negative space designs. so simple and quick they're perfect for days on the go when you don't have much time to spare..




all you need to do is cut a small triangle shaped piece of tape (I just used washi tape!) and place it at the base of your nail as shown above.

paint over as normal and remove the tape to reveal the negative shape of bare nail- easy peasy!




I've used models own bermuda blue here if you're curious, I like using bright shades for simple nails.. 

finish off with clear topcoat for a high shine.. all done!

do you like negative space nails?

back soon

  10. Great pictorial! I LOVE this negative space trend. I am also really happy you suggested using washi tape, I find the regular tape to be sometimes too sticky, which can leave a slight residue on my nail bed. Thanks for that! Bermuda Blue is beautiful!!

    Much Love,
