If you haven’t tried the negative space nail look yet, consider Khloe Kardashian’s take on the trend. Showing off a colorful stripey look, the technique isn’t nearly as complicated as you think — see for yourself!
We always turn to Instagram to keep up with Khloe Kardashian’s latest nail look, and her June 2 mani had us imagining all the ways to recreate her negative space design. We saw a ton of the naked nail bed look with colorful polish designs during Fashion Week, but Khloe’s look is DIY-friendly.
Khloe shared a close up of her new nail look on Instagram with the caption: “I am loving my nails by @kimmiekyees. It’s fun to be creative with temporary beauty techniques. I’m feeling it.”
To copy the KUWTK star’s manicure, start by making sure any polish you may have previously been wearing is completely removed. Because the look relies so heavily on a clean nail bed, any polish stains will take away from the finished look. Apply an even layer of Red Carpet Clingy Base Coat to each nail as the foundation to the look.
Once the base coat is dry, use a striping brush from the Red Carpet Manicure Nail Art Tool Kit, and alternate between Red Carpet Nail Lacquer in Blue-Delicious and Black Stretch Limo at the corners of your nails. Once the corners have dried, create longer stripes using pink shades like Bikini Bod and Simply Adorable, and a seafoam green shade like Sellout, making sure that each coat has dried before moving to the next.
Khloe Kardashian’s Negative Space Nails — Try The Trend
We love that this look is so customizable — if you struggle to create the stripes, try using one color to create the V formation at the tip instead of several crossing stripes. If you are going for the full-striped look, try switching up the color with some metallic or neon shades for summer.
What do you think of the negative space nail look? Would you copy Khloe’s latest mani, HollywoodLifers?
