Negative Space Nails Tutorial: Get Pixie Lott's Look with #ManicureMonday

Pixie Lott has been getting rave reviews for her starring role in the latest production of Puttin' On The Ritz, but it's not the only thing going down well with her fans.

The stylish singer took to Instagram yesterday to show off her new manicure, rocking the negative space trend - in which part of the nail is left free of polish.

Want to get this futuristic mani look at home? As part of our new Manicure Monday series, we've enlisted Lott's nail artist to show you how.

The Mama Do songstress's talons were created at Shoreditch salon Imarni Nails, where mega talented artists bring styles straight from the catwalk to the nail bar.

Stars like FKA Twigs, Daisy Lowe, Lily Allen and Charli XCX are also major fans.

Salon owner and the woman behind Pixie Lott's awesome nails, Imarni herself, told HuffPost UK Style how she did it:

"The look I created on Pixie Lott’s nails is actually really simple and easy to create at home!", she said.

"I started by prepping nails with Ciaté Marula Oil to soften cuticles then pushed them back with a cuticle stick to tidy nails and create a neat space for the manicure.

"The manicure itself was created with Red Carpet Manicure, which is a gel manicure you can use at home, in the shade White Hot.

"I painted the whole nail and then created the cut out negative space section using a Nail Art Striping Brush.

"You can use this to create any negative space shapes you like, I chose these curved, angular shapes which have a sixties retro feel.

"If you don’t want to use a gel you could use a regular nail polish such as Ciaté Paint Pot in Snow Virgin, or you could come into my salon at Box Park, Imarni Nails, where we can create the look for you!"
