Nail Negative Space Nails like Delpozo

Delpozo was one of the standout shows for me this season at #NYFW. I love the blush, grass green, blue and florescent yellow color palette, the modern high-volume proportions and the patchwork abstract bird prints. If I could, I would proudly strut down the streets in the entire art-inspired collection every damn day. The makeup and nails were quite good as well – simple, cool and totally modern. The yellow shadowed inner-eyes were reminiscent of some sort of futuristic women, and the nails, were a negative space matte “golden nugget” which perfectly complimented the collection. The subtle glitter stripe even stood out on the runway.

Julie Kandalec, Creative Director behind one of my fav nail salons here in NYC, Paintbox, who I have already interviewed before about the negative space craze, explains here how to get the look…and it’ soooo easy. This is the how-to so you can create this cute and super simple manicure, at home.

1. Apply ridge filling base coat to clean, filed nails. I love Nails Inc. Nail Kale Superfood Base Coat.

2. Next, apply one coat of Essie Matte About You to all nails.

3. Then, dip a skinny lip brush in Essie Good As Gold and draw a straight line down the center of the nail.

4. Using Essie Rock At The Top, dot specs of glitter over Good As Gold.

5. Finish by applying Nails Inc 45 Second Top Coat over the entire nail, for extra shine and to seal in the look.
