Negative space; noun
- (art) the empty or open space around an object that defines it; may also be referred to as white space.
One of this year’s biggest runway trends was negative space nail art, which are manicures where your bare un-colored nail creeps through bold colors surrounding it. Being an art nerd and minimalist, I fell hard for the less-is-way-more look. This trend definitely spruces up a basic paint job and the possibilities are endless. It looks amazing in any color, from pastels to brights, and can be done in any kind of pattern, simple and complex. The crazier and more creative you get the more compelling your masterpiece becomes.
