Say good-bye to thick coats of colourful nail polish and elaborate nail art that takes hours to create. Well, you can still have all that, of course, but the new trend that is all the rage this summer is minimalistic, simple, and fresh like a glass of lemonade on a hot summer day. Also known as ‘base coat nail art’, negative space nail art is painted over a coat of clear nail polish – that’s it! Stripes, polka dots, cute tiny flowers or yummy fruits – the possibilities are endless. You can either go to a salon to get a taste of this new trend or start experimenting yourself. Here are a few negative space nail art designs to get you inspired.
