Hi everyone! I have been getting several requests for a negative space mani lately, so I finally sat down and got one done!! I’m sorry for the lack of my usual step by step pics – but it just really didn’t call for it.

Negative Space Mani

I started off with my usual base coat, and then added my strips of striping tape. I added one coat of Sinful Colors Black on Black and removed my tape immediately. I gave the black plenty of time to dry and finished with one coat of SV.

Adding Stripes

For my ring finger, I started off with two coats of Sinful Colors Black on Black and applied my striping tape. I used my striping brush with Nicole by OPI Challenge Red-y, Fairy Fairy Quite Contrary, Hit the Lights, Sweet on Pete, Pros & Confidence, and Oh That’s Grape!. I finished with one coat of SV.

I really love the final result! The negative space was such fun to wear, and the rainbow accent went really well with it! I hope you enjoyed! Happy Painting!
