I'm also trying to work down my list of new and different techniques out there that I haven't done yet. One is called "negative space" , where you basically leave unpainted areas on your bare nail. I've always been kind of on the fence about this, because I'm not a big fan of VNL (that's nail code for visible nail line, hahahaha!) So I knew if I did it I'd have to think of a way to cover that up. The solution? Stripes! I do love me some stripes!
I used a ton of polishes for this! On my main fingers the blue is Zoya Muse and the green is Zoya Stassi, from the summer Tickled Collection I was sent earlier this summer. Still loving them! On the striped finger, all I did was place pieces of striping tape on my bare nail and then use my smallest dotting tool to fill in the lines, removing the tape as I went down. Then I did use a topcoat to seal it all up.
From the top the colors are: All Zoya: Tilda, Rebel, Meg, Muse, Tilda, Rebel, Ling. I forgot to use Stassi in my stripes, oops!
