Empty Half Moons


For ages I've wanted to try 'negative space' nails - where a section stays unpainted. I decided to try doing half-moons with the half moon remaining 'polish-less' as I thought it'd be easiest. I used Huckleberry by Barry M; one of their new spring Gelly shades. I love it!

I started by using a base coat of nail envy. I then freehanded half-moons at the base of each nail with the white nail art pen. I painted the rest of my nails with the pale blue (two coats) and then once dry, I went over the white line again to make it clearer and neater. I finished off with a shiny topcoat of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri. I was going to add lace-style doodles in/around the half moon, but really liked the simplicity of these so left them as they are in these pics!


  1. This looks amazing! It really suits you! Huckleberry looks great too! I definitely think I'm gonna have to try negative space nails soon! :)

  2. Lovely mani! Just love this technique... and the Huckleberry! :) xx
