Negative space nail art has been popular for a while (first evidence of negative space nail art dating back to the 1960s) and it’s not going anywhere soon! . New York Fashion Week in September showed us that the trend is here to stay for now. Today I wanted to create a lasting gel manicure, so I used my favourite gel, Bio Seaweed Gel.
I first applied Marshmallow (04) as my base so that the negative space had a little pink to it. I then polished Raindrops (62), a gorgeous grey blue for the half moon. I cleaned up the half moon with an oval nail art brush and some acetone. Finally I applied some black studs to the half moon outline. I topped with Diamond Top coat from Bio Seaweed Gel and cured the whole design in my LED portable lamp from Bio Seaweed Gel.
I love the effect of the black studs, but I have to say, that I wish I took some photos before I applied them because the simple half moon looked great on it’s own too.
Until next time,
