Dedicated to the infinite joys of nail art and design: handpaint, airbrush, colored acrylics and gels.


Metallic Negative Space Nail Art

Use Q-tips and nail polish remover to create the negative space look that is oh so popular.

Kimmie Kyees created this metallic nail art look by simply swiping some of the polish off.

1. Prep the nail with a base coat. Wait for it to completely dry and harden. Apply polish of choice on nails and allow to dry.

2. Using a Q-tip coated in nail polish remover, swipe across the nail creating a half-moon.

3. Find the center of the half-moon and drag the Q-tip upwards to create more negative space. Seal with top coat and allow to dry.
