Say good-bye to thick coatings of bright nail polish and complex nail art that takes hours to produce. Well, you can still have all that, of course, but the new fashion that is all the rage this summer is minimalistic, simple, and fresh like a drink of lemonade on a hot summer day. Also known as ‘base coat nail art’, negative space nail art is painted over a coat of transparent nail polish — that’s all! Stripes, polka dots, beautiful small flowers or delectable fruits — the choices are unlimited. You can either go to a salon to get a taste of this new style or start experimenting yourself.
