Of all the nail trends that have come and gone, we never thought there would be one that incorporated a partially naked nail. Nail polish is meant to be painted on, not spared! But ladies, expect the unexpected and keep an open mind, because the negative space manicure is having a moment (and we’re okay with it).

To celebrate the wonderment that is this manicure, artists combine trends and techniques to create their own look, coming up with the ultimate nail. From geometric patterns to full on floral designs, the possibilities are endless. Here, we pulled together 10 of our favorite negative space manicures from Pinterest for your inspiration. Take a look and let us know which manicure you’ll be trying in the comments below!
