Negative space nail art is a trend that has been around for a while and shows no signs of slowing down. The harder-than-it-looks nail art comes in various forms — the common denominator being the exposure of the nude nail within the nail art. This can mean anything from a fresh take on the French manicure to the uberchic minimalist manicures we see from the runways to the streets. These manis are relatively easy to DIY with the addition of tape, a dotting tool or your fave paint brush. Other factors that make these awesome designs even more desirable is the fact that you can often go longer between manicures because the nail regrowth is less obvious and chips in the polish are harder to spot (thank you negative space!) So if you're for a looking to create your own negative space manicure or let the pros handle it, we've got some killer looks to inspire you. Read on for some of our favorite negative space nail art designs.

Asymmetry never looked more stunning than this geometric patterned manicure. Each nail has a similar, yet unique design from the next.

Intergalactic Details
Made up of primarily negative space, this minimalist mani features a modern constellation design that is out of this world. We love the ethereal glow of the green polish and the delicate striping details.

Kelp Creations
The use of aqua sea kelp to hug the curve of the nail bed is absolute perfection. The designs look effortless and clean with the nude nail peeking through.

Stained Glass
Bold geometric patterns absolutely pop with the addition of iridescent cellophane cutouts, lending a shattered glass appearance. Layered over black polish the designs shimmer and sparkle in the light (no KiraKira needed).
