Negative Space Nails are back on the scene!
I was looking through some of my old manicures and got a really nostalgic feeling for some of the bolder nail art that I did when I had square/squoval nails. I think I mentioned this already, but with the almond shape I feel like my nail art needs to be a bit more toned down so that I don’t scare everyone including myself!
Then I came across the first two Negative Space Nails that I did, and remembered how much fun they were to do. So I grabbed some striping tape and played around with ideas in my head before settling on these.
Apologies about the photography, I’m working on a new plan for taking pics in this pitch black Autumn
On the other two designs, I used striping tape to cover the joining lines, or not at all. This time I decided to put the tape in the centre of the negative space. They didn’t much time at all. I think after you’ve done them a couple of times, it’s easier to map out in your mind which bits you want exposed and which bits you want in polish.
Update: Photo taken following morning with natural light
The shade is Aqua Cool by Rimmel (just in case you were wondering) and it partners really nicely with silver. I think I want to do a gradient with Aqua Cool and a white or grey at some point. But for now these are my new Negative Space Nails in Blue 🙂
