Throwback Thursday – Matte Negative Space

Hello lovelies, before I get to the nails, I am planning some changes in my life. Firstly I am going home next week for 2 weeks. I can’t be more excited. I’ve even planned an outfit on the day I’ll be flying back. I am super happy that I can see my fiancee and all my friends again and spend some time with them. In the near future I am planning to move back, the date isn’t fixed yet but it will be in the upcoming weeks. This will also bring few changes to the blog, I have this idea of turning it into bilingual. We’ll see if that actually works out.

Now back to nails. Last November or so I was on a negative space matte kick. I did leave these 2 almost as my last throwback post, because well I loved them so much.

So first one is a bright pink, with a lacey floral negative space accent nail and also some pearls and beads to give it a little more dimension.


  • white – OPI Alpine Snow
  • pink – NOPI Carnival Cotton Candy
  • stamping plate – BP-24
  • Seche Vite
  • Barry M matte top coat

The second design is a dark one. I used some tape to create the triangles and then stamped over the whole nail with black. I got the effect I was going for, which was having a slight hint of pattern over the dark colour as well. It was an experiment and it did work out, so I am happy 🙂


  • dark grey – OPI Dark Side Of The Moon
  • black – Maybelline Colorshow Blackout
  • stamping plate – BP-17
  • Seche Vite
  • Barry M matte top coat

Let me know what do you think of these two designs. As for Monday, if I have time from packing I will draft and schedule a swatch, since I have few photos done already. And I do hope I can squeeze in another design, which I wore over the last weekend and beginning of this week.

There’s another thing which has gone unnoticed, my blog has turned into 3. I can’t believe it, 3 years I have managed to keep creating designs and writing about them more or less :). The official date was 15th of April. I do hope to keep going, since I have so many ideas and there are some amazing artists, whose designs inspire me or even call to try and recreate them. Happy upcoming weekend everyone!

With best, K.

    Wow. I love the matte pink but also the black. The transfer looks like lace. Might have to finally get round to buying a stamping kit x
