Hi guys, I’m back with new nail art! 🙂 Did you miss me? Even just a little? :p I also worked on a new logo and placement (again) and this time I think I finally got something that I like and will stick with for a while. So let’s get to the design:The Nail Art:
For today;s look I wanted to create something super basic but also edgy so I made a simple negative space design that will also work as a background for any extra design details. I was originally going to paint some roses/flowers over it but as you can tell, I ended up changing my mind and went with some studs! I love how edgy it turned out I didn’t film a tutorial for the stud arrangements as it was a last minute change but the tutorial for the first look can be found below. 🙂

How many polishes have you bought that you still have yet to use? Too many for me! I always seem to buy a handful here and there, and tell myself that I will use them all in upcoming nail art but it just never seems to work out. I am trying to get to all of them before they just get forgotten on the shelf amongst the other array of colors. So I am starting off with a few Salon Perfect polishes from a previous buy that I have slowly but surely started to use (one by one). For instance in today’s nail art I used Salon Perfect Gone Sailing.
Isn’t it a lovely color? Teals and Turquoises are definitely some of my favorite colors and here I have paired it with one of my now favorite nail art technique/style – Negative Space.
I created this nail look by applying a very thin layer of Milani 3D Holographic polish in the color 509 HD. My aim was to only have a bit of the color popping through.
After that I used Kleancolor Black to stamp on a geometric design from Pueen plate 89. The great thing about stamped negative space designs is that the image selection is really endless. Almost any image will work to create a negative space effect when stamped over your bare nails. 🙂
After stamping all of my nails I proceeded to outline/frame the outside of my nails using a small detailing brush and black acrylic paint.
When that was dry I began placing striping tape to form a diamond shape in the center of each nail. I then filled in the shape with 2 coats of Salon Perfect Gone Sailing. I quickly removed the tape and outlined the edges of the diamonds with black acrylic paint.
Lastly I placed an optional rhinestone at the center of each diamond to create an alternative look as well as make the holo glitter pop out more. I completed the look by applying a layer of Wet n Wild Matte Top Coat

I saw the above image on Tumblr and I believe it is fan art with a quote from the movie Mean Girls. I really liked the colors and the font, since I post manicures on Wednesdays I thought it would be super fun and fitting to recreate on my nails :). The only thing I wish I has also done was to do my other hand saying “wear” so when they are together it would say “wear pink”. That would have been much more representative, but for some reason I only put “pink”, oh well lol.
I have noticed lately Mean Girls has become popular again, I often hear and see quotes from it all over the place. I actually watched it in the theaters when it first came out. I liked it, not really sure why it so popular again 10 years later though… lol. What do you think? Is Mean Girls one of your favorite movies?
Colors I used were: Basic white, Kleancolor Neon Pink, Pastel Purple, and Fairy Love.
