Hello lovelies,

So today I am joining a nail art challenge/link up after a long, long time! The theme is negative space to which I couldn't resist! Joining me in this challenge will be many talented nail bloggers to which I'll link at the end of this post so you can check their manicures too.

My negative space manicure is based on basic triangle shape and two different colours:

I don't do negative space very often because I don't like to show my naked nails much so I hope you like it ;)

 

The main role in this manicure is played by the new 'Ard As Nails* polishes! I finally got to try this British indie brand and I've used two shades - medium pink Gregory's Girl and grey creme Slated. They were well-pigmented so it was easy to work with them, I'll do a review later.

 

I've also used a striping tape, sellotape, nail art brush, OPI Natural Nail Base Coat and my trusty Seche Vite top coat.

Hello lovelies,

How are you all? As promised, I keep practising one stroke nail art. It's very simple now but I hope to learn more advanced flowers as well. I even bought a DVD learning course! Wish me luck lol!

For now, here's my new creation :)

First I started with two coats of Dance Legend Enamel Glass collection 1055 and one coat of Dance Legend City Lights Sleepwalk glitter topper. Once the polish dried I've used acrylic paints and flat one stroke brush to paint the one stroke flowers. They're far from perfect but I'm veeeery slowly getting there (..or at least somewhere).

 

What do you think? Too basic or ok? Let me know in the comments!

 

Have a lovely day! Lucie x
