The "Naked" Mani Everyone's Getting to Make Their Nails Look Longer

When it comes to nails, both fashion and beauty girls seem to be united on one thing: A great manicure will always be the cherry on the cake. But, if you’re anything like me, the last thing you want to do at the end of a busy day is to spend half an hour painstakingly applying a base coat, two coats of colour and a top coat only to immediately ruin all your hard work when you unbutton your jeans to switch into your comfies.

That's where this nail trend comes in. Negative-space manicures are the newest approach to nude nails. The style is low-maintenance, stylish and fun, and I'm already rushing to the nearest nail salon to try it myself. There's something we've noticed about every iteration—they magically make your nails look longer, so this is particularly great for anyone who doesn't want to/can't grow them out.
