Negative space nail designs, like this one by artist Madeline Poole, were trending at this year’s New York Fashion Week.
"Geometric and negative-space nail designs [are everywhere this season], with pretty pastels for spring and neon colors on the horizon for summer. Those requesting these particular designs believe in the ‘more is more’ rule and leave no fingers bare!”
How to wear it:
“[Designing just] the ring finger is a fun way to enjoy the trend. Also, nail wraps for [the beach] are a great way to try a new look without having to worry about chipping.” Her go-to inspiration: “My favorite nail artist is Madeline Poole. She has lots of examples of geometric and negativespace designs.”
“People are increasingly more conscious about what they put on and in their bodies. Nail polishes are not all created equal. Consumers are most concerned with making sure [the polish formulations are “free” of] toluene, formaldehyde resin, camphor, ethyl tosylamide, xylene and parabens. DC-area nail spas and boutiques—like The Emerald Door, Varnish Lane, Be Clean, and Taylor and York—are embracing this healthier option and currently carry our 8-free nail lacquer collection.”
