This Nail Polish Trend is the Best Way to Make Your Mani Last Longer

Is there anything worse than spending an hour getting a manicure, not to mention spending your hard-earned cash on that manicure, only to have it start growing out in a few days? And sporting a mani that starts a centimetre or two above your cuticles is just not acceptable.

The solution: negative space! We’ve raved about the trend before, but it’s not just a pretty design. Think about it: your grow-out isn’t really visible if it’s part of the nail art. You can extend that mani more than you ever thought possible.

Check out some of our favourite negative space manicures below.
