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 top. But if you’re anything like me, the last thing you want to do at the end of a busy day is spend half an hour painstakingly applying a base coat, two coats of color, and a topcoat 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. It magically makes your nails look longer, so this is particularly great for anyone who doesn't want to or can't grow them out.
