Nail Art Tutorial: Negative Space for Autumn 2016

Nail Art Tutorial: Negative Space for Autumn 2016

By semick

Want a sneak peek at what nail art will look like in Fall 2016? The design worn on the runway at the Autumn 2016 Stella McCartney presentation gives us a good idea of what to expect. Notably, the nail art (created by the Sally Hansen team led by Sally Hansen Global Color Ambassador Madeline Poole) is a gorgeous nude nail with clean lines, geometric elements, and negative space. Poole created an exclusive nail look inspired by the collection using Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Au Nature-al and Pat on the Black. If you want to stay ahead of the trends, here’s how to create the look yourself right now:
