Coral Floral Lace

Apparently I am on a lace kick…the last THREE manis I have done (this and the next two Mentality polishes I get to show you guys) are all lacy! But this was the first and is the most straightforward.

I started with a base of Startle, another neon holo by Mentality. Startle is the bight orange of the collection, and went on nicely in two coats. Easy to control (and easy to remove), I really rather like this polish! It’s sort of a nudeish orange.

Startle also looks fantastic in direct light 🙂

Then I went to add the lace decals from the Born Pretty Store…and I am so dumb sometimes. When I first put on the water decals, I forgot to take off the plastic top layer! So the decals over the free edge of my nails are thick and didn’t want to stay on. I wised up half way through (because I knew SOMETHING was wrong…born pretty store decals are usually a dream to work with) and everything went much better after that! I added some black dots at the border to make it harder to see my mistake :-p

Regardless, the decals (once I got my head on straight) were very easy to apply if a bit thin, and looked awesomely lacy! I know what I want to do with them next 🙂

If you want to pick up Startle, you can find her for $6.75 at the Mentality shop. The lace decals are currently on sale for $0.99! If you like them don’t forget to use my 10% off code, LY5X31. Enjoy!
