Hello everyone! It’s been a while.. but I’m not gonna spend a whole post on the past 3 months and everything that’s happened. I can’t wait to get back to my fav topic..NAILS! Lately I haven’t been that creative mainly due to too little time. I think most of you know I’m a little metalhead inside and therefore I go to metal concerts quite often! I’ve been thinking about a mani that would suit such events :-) Think I found it! This design is called a V-Gap is you’ve probably seen it before since it’s quite a big hit in nailpolishworld! Ofcourse I’m not so up to date anymore so I only recently discovered this mani and really wanted to try it out myself.

The trick is to get a tiny nailartbrush and start with shaping the ‘half moon rounds’ on the bottom of your nail. Personally I’d like to start at the edges so I can keep an eye on the height on both sides. When you’ve made your shape you pull your brush all the way up in a straight line. You can now start filling this side with a black polish. Repeat these steps on the other side of your nail as well and there you have your very own V-Gap! I think this looks so cool and would be perfect to be combined with neon colors as a base!



My cat Boefje has missed me smelling like nailpolish as well it seemed, he couldn’t decide whether he was too curious to not look or too grossed out by the smell and turn his back on me haha :roll:




I hope you’re all ok, thanks for visiting this slacker once again ♥
