Negative Space Nail Art Tutorial

Negative space nail art is a technique I love but i've never really tried, so I thought I would give it a go and created a subtle striped design.

What will you need?
All you will need for this tutorial is 3 nail varnish shades. I went for two nude polishes and a bright fuchsia to add a pop of colour. You will also need some striping tape and a dotting tool.

Step-By-Step Tutorial:

Step 1: To begin take some striping tape and place onto a naked nail.

Step 2: Next, fill in the gaps between the tape with the 3 polishes of your choice.

Step 3: Remove the tape to reveal your negative space design.

Step 4: After everything has had time to dry, go in with a top coat to seal in your nail art.

And there you have your subtle, striped, negative space nail art.
