Negative Space Nail Art Step-by-Step

Negative Space can sometimes be a daunting technique for some manicurists. This guide makes creating this nail art super easy. Any shade can be used for this look and often a statement nail is more effective rather than painting all ten finger nails.

 

Step 1: Apply Bio Sculpture Base Gel and cure for 30 seconds

 

 

Step 2: Apply 2 coats of Barbie or your chosen shade to your nails, but not on statement nail, and cure for 30 seconds between each layer

 

 

 

Step 3: On your statement nail create two lines where you would like your negative space. Use a No.17 Nail Art Brush to help you achieve an accurate and neat line. Cure for 30 seconds, once you are happy with the results.

 

 

Step 4: Using an Upper Arch Brush and a No. 4 Flat Brush paint the rest of the nail, cure for 30 seconds and repeat.
