White matte negative space manicure

17:58

Hey Beauties!

You've seen a glimpse of this manicure in my Asian inspired makeup post. Negative space manicure.. I think that is how it's called. You basically leave some space out with no nail polish and create certain patterns. I think this has become a rather trend since this year, so I wanted to try it. It's not my finest manicure, but I like the idea of it.


I had the chance to use my Essence Holo Stripes Nail Art Stickers, which is basically a thin tape that you can tape on the nails and create designs with it. Of course you can leave it on the nails, but I just used it as a boarder. If you have thicker tape, you don't need to do as I did, because I needed two lines in order to get bigger negative space. I just cropped the tape and stick it on in the V shape. 

Also, I did use a base coat, because I stained my nails with one of the nail polish and wanted my nails to look really neutral for the negative space, but you can skip this, if you'll be using light shades of nail polish. I used Alessandro Pro White Effect Polish.

Then I chose the nail polish with the biggest possible brush (wrong!)  and tried to fill in only the top V space and the rest of the lover space. I used Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in 171 Bleach Babe. Trust me, get a different smaller brush and probably the nail polish that doesn't dry quickly.

After that I just removed the tape. I would advise you to remove the tape a few seconds after applying the nail polish. Because if the polish gets too dry, like in my case, you won't have a crisp line. Also try to fold tapes so that you get perfect V shape, you'll see I wasn't so good at that.


For an extra fun effect I used matte top coat over it. I've been using this Kiko 3 in 1 Mat Fortifying Fast Dry Vase and Top Coat all the time. Any manicure looks so much better with matte finish. That's just my personal preference, you can totally skip this. But do put top coat over it, to seal in the design you just made. 


I admit my execution is not as nice as I thought it would be, but I still wanted to post this. If you recreate it, I would love to see your photos. I love the idea of the negative space manicure. How about you?

  8. Prvič slišala za to, se vidi da več ne spremljam trendov in nisem na tekočem. Zanimiva ideja.. Tako lepo izgleda ta negativen prostor, na tvojih nohtih. Super ideja!
