Negative Space: The manicure trend that leaves our nails bare

Among nail polish specialists, a new trend is beginning to emerge: the “Negative Space”, or “negative space” in good French. The principle: leave spaces without varnish on our nails to create patterns. In this blog, your expert nail supplier Maryton will explain everything to you.

Negative Space, a technique inspired by tattooing?

The principle of “Negative space” or negative space is already used in the art of tattooing. The principle is simple: rather than saturating a space with colors, we let the skin appear to create contrast. Well for the Negative Space manicure, it’s the same principle. Rather than betting on a bi-color nail art, apply only one nail polish, but not all of it.

Negative Space manicure: instructions for use

To achieve a Negative Space manicure, you have two options. The first is for girls who are skilled with their hands: nail polish, a fine brush: it’s up to you to draw the patterns that suit you, leaving a little bare nail.

For the most clumsy, we find the traditional method of scotch tape: all you have to do is protect the areas you don’t want to color with a piece of adhesive tape, and remove it once your manicure is finished!

Now that you have all the information to achieve a Negative Space manicure, all you have to do is get started! In addition to these, I advise you to invest in a complete manicure kit! To help you in your choice, I invite you to visit our website.
