The latest nail art trend popping up on manicured nails all around the world is the negative-space manicure. The negative-space manicure is created by painting a graphic nail design over a naked nail bed.

The popular manicure uses your bare nail color as a part of the nail design. Cutouts, geometric, shapes, and half moon-icures are just some of the nail art ideas the versatile manicure offers.

The nail art trend was first spotted on the New York Fashion Week runways of Creatures of Comfort and Charlotte Ronson and has been picking up popularity ever since.

The negative-space manicure offers unlimited color palettes, accents and graphic design options to update your 2015 nail manicure look.
