How cool is this nail art? The method is possibly one of the simplest. All you need to have for this is either bobby pins or toothpicks. Start with a few coats of clear/nude polish. Then cover with black and white polka dots. Go ahead and use different shades for a fun twist if you feel fancy!

Negative space manicure is a foolproof way to play with nail art. Instead of painting your entire nail with a bold colour, let your base show through. Use the polish to trace the outer edge of the nail, and then use a Q-tip dipped in the nail remover to clean up the surface. Easy, quick!
