Follow these instructions if you're going to use pre-glued nails. Step 1: Remove any polish or debris from your nails. Lauren Zaser / Via BuzzFeed Life Negative space nail art means that your natural nail will show. Make sure it's clean! Step 2: Place two French manicure tip guides (they're essentially stickers) on your nail. Lauren Zaser / Via BuzzFeed Life One should be one-fourth of the nail's surface from the cuticle, the other should be one-fourth from the free edge of your nail. Use the dotting tool to gently press the tip guides down at the edges of your nail. Step 3: Continue to use your dotting tool to press down on the nail guides where they meet the edge of your nail. Lauren Zaser / Alice Mongkongllite / Via BuzzFeed Life Make sure they lay flush against your nail for the best results. Step 4: Using your metallic polish, paint the outermost sections of your nail that have been taped off. Lauren Zaser / Via BuzzFeed Life Paint from the nail guide down to the cuticle, then from the nail guide up to the free edge of your nail. Let the polish dry for about 15–20 minutes. Step 5: Once the polish is completely dry, gently peel the nail tip guides off of your nail. Lauren Zaser / Via BuzzFeed Life If the polish is at all tacky when you start to remove the guides, stop peeling and wait a few more minutes for the paint to dry. Step 6: Finish with a clear top coat. Lauren Zaser / Via BuzzFeed Life And you're set! Find more wedding nail art ideas here.
