Lilac and Lace

Another nude-ish lace mani! There really isn’t much to say about this, except that I am glad I went ahead and added the purple highlights and the studs.

The base color is yet another Mentality matte, called Gesso. Gesso covered in two thin coats, but was streaky and prone to separate over a base coat. I maybe shouldn’t have added a base at all, but it makes me feel more secure to have more layers on my nails! Either way, not my favorite polish but a passable nude-ish.

The purple was dabbed on by hand after stamping (which is to say I did not make a stamping decal for this one). Still looks alright I think!
