9 Nail-Art Trends Blowing Up On Instagram Right Now

Negative Space

Negative space adds unexpected shape and dimension to a manicure, while keeping the overall look minimalist. “Negative space nails are going to be huge this season,” Green tells us. “You can definitely expect to see more cool creativity with the design of the bare nail.” We’re partial to this diagonal stripe between two blocks of pastel, but the whole point of this look is to try something new, so have fun experimenting with cut-outs, dips, and floating negative designs, too.
