It’s cooled off some this week so I ended up pulling out some black a grey pieces (my typical winter colors) for this weeks ootds. To compliment the looks but still keep a lightness for the first week of spring, I decided to do a simple negative space manicure.

It took me a little while to figure out what to do with my nails this week while keeping in mind that I wanted it to match my St Patricks day look (don’t worry, I’m wearing some green) but I finally figure it out & came up with this simple manicure.
For these nails I actually started out by painting them white because I had a different idea in mind for this week that I just wasn’t into. Next, I painted a peach color over it. Lastly, I used thin manicure tape to paint a gold stripe down the side of my nails. Normally I would have painted my nails gold first, then used a single piece of nail tape on each nail to make the stripes & painting peach over the tape. This would also have saved me some tape, but again it took me awhile to figure out what I wanted.
For these matte & shinny black & gold nails I first painted my nails black.
Then used my matte top coat.
Once that is completely dry, I used my straight french tip manicure stickers from my Sally Hansen kit to block off the black areas & make stripes for the gold.
Then I took off just the bottom stickers to use shinny top coat for the tips.
For the ring finger I also took off the sticker second from the base to use shinny top coat.
Once the shinny top coat is almost completely dry (if it dries all the way the stickers might get to stiff to pull off) you can pull off all of the stickers.
