Negative Space Art You'll Want to Try

Get the latest tips on creating the spring worthy trend in minutes

by Team Ebony,


This week we caught up with Charlottesville and Richmond, VA based freelance manicurist Kay. 

The Trend: Negative space, or cut-out nails have been taking over the way we view nail art and even pop art since making their debut on the runway during New York Fashion Week.

EBONY: How did you create this design?

Kay: I've seen so many different negative space nail designs by my fellow nail techs on Instagram, that it inspired me to do my own with a little twist.

EBONY: What do you feel is your artistic significance when it comes to nail art?  

Kay: My client’s fingernails are my canvas, and I love them for allowing me to become creative and do whatever that I like to their nails.
