Hello loves! Today I have a very pretty negative space mani to share with you that features some heart shaped jewel decals from Born Pretty Store. When I pulled these out I had no idea what I was going to do with them, and in fact this started out as a French manicure and evolved from there! Yay for organic creation!
Let’s start out with the decals, as they’re the feature of this mani. You can see how I received them above – there are a few different shapes and the gems come in three different colours. You get quite a few of them which is awesome, so I’ll have to come up with some other ways to use them!
The decals applied really easily, and I was really pleased that they’re opaque enough that you don’t need a base coat under the decals for the colour to come through. If you want to pick them up you can find them here for $1.50!
I started out with French tips as I mentioned before, and then added my decals and tried to figure out what else I wanted to do… The white I used is Sinful Colors Snow Me White and I eventually ended up with this outlined negative space look. It’s different, I like it! 🙂
Freehanding the heart outlines was a bit tricky and I’m not 100% happy with them but they’re decent, and everything takes practice right?
The decals have a very princess-y feel to me, so I think I’ll need to do some type of crown or necklace look with these in the future… The colours come out a bit softer on the nail than the decals look like on the paper, but that’s fine. They’re still lovely!
How do you think I should use these decals in my next look? Let me know your ideas!
