A few months back, I saw a mani idea on @misspopnail's IG account, and this week, I decided to give it a try.

I fell in love with the one in the bottom, left. Although, now that I'm looking at this picture again, I'm digging the bottom right...and the top left. Okay, so I may do more manis based on this picture. Haha!

I used wide strips, usually reserved for French manis, and put them on two nails, vertically. Then I did two coats of Bizarre Blurple on all fingers. Before the polish could fully dry, I removed the stickers. 

For some added fun, I added the neon studs. Because neon studs are awesome and pretty much make everything better. Just like glitter. Haha! I finished the mani with a coat of HK Girl Glisten and Glow quick-dry top coat.

Negative space manis are so freaking fun. I remember when I used to be a hater of this trend. Oh how wrong I was!! Neon yellow and deep purple are such a pretty combo. Perfect for winter-to-spring manis. And the Glisten and Glow topcoat worked great at keeping the studs looking fresh.

What are you rocking this week? 

Hope you have an awesome weekend!


  1. I have sand polish on my nails. your nails always look amazing.


  2. What an intriguing way to use negative space! I like it!! And obviously adding neon studs makes your mani WAY better than misspopnails... ;)

  3. That's a really pretty purple. I have dark blue on my nails.

  4. It's like little skyscrapers on your nails! :D

  5. I love this! I need to try something with negative space!
