40 Great Nail Art Ideas: Three Shades of Purple + Negative Space

It is time for the most complicated prompt in the history of nail art challenges! This is one that always makes me stretch my brain...and I have made some pretty impressive stuff. I have also made some of the most awkward fails of my arting career. Oh well, at least I'm having fun!

40 Great Nail Art Ideas: Three Shades of Purple + Negative Space

Negative space is a big thing this year, and when my nails are horribly yellow, I do enjoy the look. For this, I broke out some nail vinyls that a friend sent to me and started sticking them around. I really need more of these things, y'all. They are wonderful. But they will pick up your base coat if you aren't careful. Let's not look too closely at my ring finger, ok? After my vinyls were applied, I did some painting and some seriotyping. I definitely have two different sorts of manicure here, but I rather enjoy that.

You may notice that my nails look unusually glossy...well, aside from my normal Seche Vite, I have some UV-cured gel on my nails. I cracked a nail, and I figured I might as well give these a test. Things are going...interestingly. I can't decide how I feel about them as-yet, but I promise a full review soon.

This go-round definitely went better than my last try. No needle dragging for me, thank-you very much. I will stick to seriotypes for a while.

  8. This looks fantastic! I love negative space but haven't done it as my nails are a mess. And needle dragging never works for me. I end up with bald spots
