Jin Soon’s Unexpected Tip For Negative-Space Manicures

jin soon

Jin Soon’s Fall/Winter 2014 collection is a partnership with designer Tess Giberson, inspired by the fair fair isle Americana of classic sportswear and effortless luxurious style.  “I wanted to transform a classic color palette by adding cool, subtle effects like shimmer and speckles to give the hues a completely new dimension.” That she did, and in the image above, the model is sporting a negative-space Nocturne nail moment, created with a dotting tool instead of using tape to create the no-polish element. Says Jin, all you have to do is “erase” the squiggle of space while the polish is still wet and voila.

Here, the details on the full Jin Soon X Tess Giberson polish collection.


Nocturne  (Dark Gray Metallic Black)
