I'm a bit late posting this manicure for the "26 Great nail Art Ideas" Challenge, as it was due on Friday. Last night I eventually made it to do my nail art so I can finally publish it today. The theme for this week is, of course, related to Halloween, but for making thinks more interesting, we got a technique prompt which is "negative space". What is that? Well it simply means that your nail design should not cover the whole nail and at least some portion of your natural nails should show in the design. Keep reading to learn how I did my negative space nails under 5 minutes!!
My manicure today is very simple, easy and quick to achieve. I first painted a coat of base coat, I'm currently using Zoya Anchor base coat, which is hands down my favourite, but also quite pricey (it costs 19.90 CHF ) so I don't always buy it and sometimes I use a less expensive one.
This basecoat dries glossy within a few seconds. Once it was dried, I sponged the tips of my nails with black polish (OPI My gondola or yours) but left the part near the cuticle completely bared, so that you can see the "negative space". I painted my ring nail completely to make an accent. This took me under 2 minutes. Then I applied some cute Halloween themed nail decals, sealed those with a glossy topcoat (Seche vite) and that was it!!
