black negative space

Hey everyone!
I am continuing the series of manicures that I created using a few BornPrettyStore products and today I will show you one of my all time favorite manicures that I've created. I wanted to do a negative space such as this one in a long time, but the problem was I didn't have the proper wider striping tape and that's where BPS came in :)

What I love most about it is that it was really easy to do. First of, I applied the tape in the pattern that I wanted. I used two different types of striping tape - wider and thinner. I applied my black nail polish and a thick, glossy top coat. And that is literally it.

To me, this wider striping tape is much more versatile as compared to the thinner ones. They are a pain in the butt and I hate using them. There I said it... I loved this striping tape because it doesn't create air bubbles, you can cut it easily and it doesn't curl which is a common problems with some striping tapes. I see myself using it a lot.
I wouldn't recommend it as an overlay striping tape (such as the colorful thin ones), I think that it is more of a tool for creating stripes, rather than a decoration.

I also wanted to incorporate the nail foil that I got from BPS as well, but I must admit that I ended up ruining this mani :( It just doesn't work with this design.

The foil itself is really nice quality. Of course, you need foil glue in order to apply it, but the application is amazing, it doesn't stick and doesn't pull the glue apart. The foil didn't shrink or wrinkle when I added the top coat over it and, most important of all, it kept its holographic and metallic look.
