Dedicated to the infinite joys of nail art and design: handpaint, airbrush, colored acrylics and gels.


Nail Art Studio: Intergalactic Negative Space

Make your clients nails sparkle like a diamond with this silver negative space mani. 

1. Create a V-shape using a holographic and silver Scotch Expression metallic tape and trim the excess. Coat with Young Nails Synergy Flex gel, followed by tack-free top gel.

2. Create an ombre fade with clear and white acrylic. Shape, file, buff, and coat the entire nail with Venus top coat.

3. Carefully trim the metallic tape into a long, thin triangular shape. Place the triangle on the top of the nail.  Create a 3-D square with indents in each corner by using Wildflowers Black Lace Paste. Place a square silver charm in the center of the 3-D square.

4. Embellish the nail with a Swarovski crystal inside the charm. Secure with gel. Use a detail brush to outline the design with black gel, painting parallel stripes along the tip’s metallic design and on the square corners at the bottom of the nail. Add any other details you wish.
