Negative Space Nails with Chisato Yamamoto
The cut-out dress of the nail world – negative space manicures. Just like it’s trendy fashion equivalent, these nail designs show enough bare skin to be subtle…and sexy.
The best part about the trend is that you don’t need to be the most-skilled nail artist to master this look. On set of our latest story, the lovely and talented Chisato Yamamoto created 4 different takes on the trend and shares her simple how-to tricks.
Proud Trout - by Butter London
You know the white bits on your nails – the tips and the moons? All you have to do is covering only these with a a lovely shade of peach , let it dry, apply some top coat and you are good to go.
Bikini So Teeny and Chills and Thrills - by Essie
Now, this is one for all the women out there with steady hands. Pick two colours of your choice – here Chisato used a lighter and darker blue. Start with one of the colours painting two of the opposing edges – leaving the middle free. After that part completely dried use the other shade and do the same on the other edges. Sounds complicated – but it’s totally doable!
Sparrow Me The Drama - by Opi
The most subtle of them all – another twist on the french manicure. Leaving the nail bare you only apply a thin stripe along the nail tips in a beautiful muted pink. Modern, simple and understated coolness.
Forget Me Not - by Dior
Did you ever try not painting your nail all the way up to the cuticle? Looks surprisingly good and is a fun and simple way to give the negative space manicure a try.MINMAX loves this trend!
