Master Negative Space Manicures
Getting a flawless negative space nail art design is challenging. Even worse, when you try to touch up a mistake with polish remover, the base coat turns your artwork into a jagged, blurry mess. Julie Kandelec, the lead Essie manicurist at Altuzarra, recommends skipping the base coat until you’ve completed the design with your lacquer. “Make it work like double sided tape,” she said. Go over your new art with base coat to make your natural nail look nice and even, then once it’s dry, apply another coat of your lacquer shade.
