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!

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