Negative Space Mani Monday

The spring runways showed us some serious crop tops and sheer paneling. And for anyone who thought that look couldn’t be replicated on nails, Q-tips and celebrity nail artist Kimmie Kyees are here to prove you wrong. Just like you would cut off a shirt to bare some midriff, you can use Q-tips and nail polish remover to create the negative space look that is oh so popular.

What you will need:

  • Nail polish
  • Nail polish remover
  • Q-tips
  • Base coat and top coat
