Lace and Nude

I am proud of myself for this one…it involved frankening my first ever polish! Nail art similar to this has been appearing all over pinterest in the last few months, and I was determined to make my own version (when I had 2+ hours to paint). This actually only took around 45 minutes….the free-handed lace was minimal work!

The hardest part here was finding the right ratio of black polish and clear polish to make a black jelly. I think I was slightly off…I had to use 3 coats to get the opacity you see (and I only did 3 because the coats were uneven without 3. I also put them on too fast because I was excited…hence the bubbles. Sorry about bubbles!).

I started with this mani shiny, but decided to matte it. I like the matte version far better. I think I might re-do this an experiment with colors a bit! Silver and blue maybe? Gold and green? The possibilities are endless and surprisingly elegant!

    I absolutely love this manicure ❤

  2. First, this mani looks very nice and the colors from my screen look modulated and unusually interesting as a “capture.” Also, it is inspiring to see someone playing around with effects “online.” (I didn’t realize one only adds a single drop of color to 8x the quantity of clear polish. I thought it would take much more of a proportion of color when making a jelly.)
    TX for sharing you work. It helps me much!

  3. Nice. So detailed. Good pick on the matte finish, too. 🙂

  4. Such a gorgeous mani!! I like it matte the best!
