Negative space designs have become more and more popular as options for different looks have circulated the web and social media. People have gotten adventurous with their nails and self-expression, making artwork diverse and inspiring. As a nail artist, I’m having a lot of fun pushing the envelope with this one! Here are just a few reasons I love negative space.
Still need more reasons to be a fan of negative space? You can vary greatly from very minimal designs to very intricate. From just dots or line work to incorporating the negative portions within a current design. This is where “less is more” takes on a whole new meaning. Try using less colored portions to create a more interesting look.
Being such a versatile option of art, you can get extremely creative with this one. Be fearless and give your clients something to be wowed by.
