Negative Space Nails

Hiya guys, how's it going today? I have a bit of an early post today since this afternoon I'll be expecting family over to the house. Not a good thing. I'll actually be spending my time hiding out upstairs while mom entertains them, haha. I normally would socialize, but have been feeling really ill since I woke up this morning. I'll be taking a few days to recover some time this month, but I'll post more on that at a later date. On to today's nail art, shall we? I decided to participate in one of the prompts issued by Nail It Magazine, 'Negative Space'. Here's what I came up with for the prompt:

What do you think?

I wish I liked this design more than I actually do. I'm not sure if it's the fact that I didn't have much time to work on this or not that's affecting my judgement on it. As I always say though, we are our own worst critics.

For the accent nail, I used a liquid sand polish by OPI called Emotions and paired it with a stud. I wish I could remember where I got the stud from but I'm pretty sure it was a sample with a polish purchase. The blue color, as you can see in the other photo, is from Rica and it's called Robin's Egg Blue. The lines were free-styled with acrylic paint for more control. I sealed this off initially with a matte topcoat, but as my friend Cheyenne suggested it looks much better with a glossy finish.

Let me know what do you think. Love you guys and I'll catch you tomorrow.
