My latest nail art obsession is negative space! I haven’t experimented much with it myself, but the technicians at the nail salons I have been frequently have!
Besides looking incredibly chic, negative space nail art, if used correctly, could last a long time since it blends in with your natural nail bed.
A coworker of mine recently alerted me to a nail salon that specializes in nail art that offers weekly $40 gel nail art specials – Vanity Projects. Clearly, I booked an appointment immediately.
When I went on to the site to book the appointment, it was simple an turn-key, but there’s a catch to the $40 special – it’s an extra $10 to remove the gel of your previous manicure! Bummer, but I still went for it because it’s still a pretty good price for a gel nail art manicure in New York City.
The girl doing my nails had gems on her nails, and I promptly took notice and began asking questions. “Do they stay on?” “How do they stay on so long?!” “Do they get stuck in your hair?” When I finished my interrogation I was in. I told her one nail, gold, and in the negative space. Everything else was up to her.
I’d say she nailed* it, don’t you agree?
