Green in the Negative


I usually do a sheer polish on my nails when I’m doing a negative mani, but this time I really went for the complete negative look.  I did this adorable nail art straight on top of my base coat.  Here’s how I did another one of my back in the day mani’s.

Items Needed:

  • Base coat
  • Top coat
  • Black acrylic paint
  • Dotting tool
  • Nail art brush

Polishes Used:

Step 1: Like always, apply your base coat.  On your index finger, make a stripe of polish down your finger.  Apply two coats so that it will be opaque.


Step 2:  Using the black paint and the nail art brush, paint a thin black line down your middle nail.


Step 3: Then make a line in the shape of a sidways “V”.  The point of the “V” will be touching the right side of the line and the open part should be facing your index finger.


Step 4: Repeat step 3 with smaller “V’s” inside of the bigger “V”.


Step 5:  On your ring finger nail, using the dotting tool and the green polish, make small blobs on your nail.


Step 6:  Again with the dotting tool, dip it in black and make black “C’s” around the green blobs and to fill in empty spaces make small black dots.


Step 7:  On your pinky, use your striper and draw a “V” with the green polish.  The point of the “V” will be near the tip of your nail.


Step 8:  Then fill in the area around the “V”.


Step 9:  Apply a top coat to all your nails and you’re all done.
