nail art design trend featuring negative space manicures pedicures 600 x 600

The perfect mani-pedi is the cherry on top of any look, and this season it’s all about abstract negative space nail designs. It’s not a new concept in the world of nail art, but it has made a comeback and is one of the hottest trends seen on the catwalk and the stylish streets of New York and Seoul. Celebrities including model Irene Kim, Kylie Jenner and South Korean pop star CL love the artistic value of blank space. Even manicure maven Eun Kyung Park of Unistella has been blowing up social media with her inventive negative-space designs.

Simple and sleek, the negative space manicure comes in many variations and colours (check out our favourite nail polish colours for the season), and can even vary from one nail to the next. Whether a revamped French tip, simple line play in colourful stripes, or a nail outline with no base colour, the mantra here is: less is more. Add a touch of metallic colour or a few nail stickers into the mix, and you’re photo shoot-ready.

You can easily create a negative space design at home by applying thin strips of tape to your nails where you want your negative space to be. Paint over with the colour of your choice, let it dry for 30 seconds, peel off the tape, finish off with a layer or two of topcoat, and you’re good to go. Switch it up with different directions for each nail, or add nail stickers for an even more abstract design.
