Nail Tutorial: Negative Space with a Splash of Coral
Written by Project Inspired | July 31, 2015
Unless you’ve been living under a rock with Patrick Star, you’ve seen this new trend in nail design called “negative space.” We even wrote an article about it a few months ago.
We absolutely LOVE this trend! The designs are unique and SUPER easy to re-create. Here’s a tutorial that we put together for a cute and chic coral design. We hope you like it!
What you’ll need:
- Coral nail polish
- Clear nail polish
- A pair of hands 😉
Cut 10 small strips of tape and place them on your nails as shown in the photo above. Ideally, you want the tape to sit closer to the top of your nail bed. However, this is your creative space, so feel free to place the tape as high or as low as you’d like.
Now for the fun part! Grab your coral nail polish and paint the exposed area above the tape. It’s totally okay if you get paint on the tape. With the very tip of the brush, place a small dot at the bottom of your nail bed.
Remove the tape and admire your handiwork! For extra shine, apply a thin layer of clear polish over each nail and allow to dry for a few minutes.
Any suggestions for our next nail tutorial?
