Nail File Friday’s: Negative Space Nail Art Red Orange + Gold

I told you last week about the negative space nail art craze and that I was on board – still am, here’s another negative nail art design I did this week. Why I’m loving the negative space nail art, for one the ideas are endless, the color combinations are never ending, there is no one way and no rules to follow!

Essie Nail Polish Used: Essie Good As Gold (gold) I used Fifth Avenue however it isn’t available, Ole Caliente is the next best thing (red-orange with pink undertone)

Nail Tools UsedNail Brush and Dotter, you can use Avery Reinforcement Labels or you can also try these French Manicure Stickers – Mix Styles that work as an easy guide for nail art and aluminum foil to place a few drops of the color that will be used for nail art.


Steps For Nail Art:

Step One:  1 Coat of ‘Seche’ Base Coat

Step Two: I did the angled nail art without using any labels as a guide, but if you use the labels, remove the labels while the polish is still wet, clean up the sides of the nail by simply dipping the nail brush in acetone. After the polish was dry, I applied three dots of gold on each nail. I did enjoy this look with and without the gold dots, both are so fun. Tip: Clean the dotter tool and wipe clean with acetone after each nail.

…. Allow the nail art to completely dry to avoid smudging ….

Step Three:  1 Coat of ‘Out The Door’ Top Coat

This is optional ….

‘Cuccio’ Cuticle Oil – Milk & Honey  – Cuticle oil will avoid your cuticles from drying that can happen from the nail acetone, it helps keep your cuticles moisturized

Have a great Friday!

    1. I know! With everyday house chores, it happens to me too. I often change it by Tuesday. I noticed these Negative Space designs are easy to maintain, just add some more color, some top coat and done! You don’t need to do the entire polish all over again. 😊🙌🏽

      1. I wouldn’t risk being my authentic self for a few likes. 😉 It’s what I enjoy, if you don’t, no worries, you can just keep it moving. I can’t win them all OJ! I think we may know a thing or two about that. Thank you friend. 😊🙏🏽

  1. My wife does the gel nail polish. Looks good for a day or 2… obviously it chips easy.. or she’s rough on the polish.. either way the answer is always, they look nice!! 👍

      1. It’s hard to win with my wife lol! She seems like she doesn’t believe me when I tell her… and I do tell the truth! But, woe unto me if I don’t say something!

      2. Lol You’re not alone! And she’s right, husbands must say something. My husband doesn’t like any of the nail artsy stuff. He likes plain red and the regular ‘ole French tip manicure. 🙄 Nope. Not me. Can I just be doing the contrary to annoy him?! Ha! 🤨
