Blooming Lace

Every time I try and do lace, I get the overwhelming urge to color in the flowers! So, here is another leadlight lace flower mani, this time with a new nude!

Boho Babe by L’oreal is a very pretty soft pink nude, but takes 3 medium-thick coats for opacity and does not self-smooth. Given that it is a pastel, this is unsurprising, but I was so hopeful! Regardless, it is a very pretty color. I wanted a stand in for the early spring pink-nude Zoya, and I found one (for cheap)!

Oddly, in all the photos Boho Babe looks almost grey-nude, rather than light pink. It’s probably my lighting, but I promise its a pale soft pink!

I don’t quite know why I made the flowers teal and red, rather than some normal color and red. I wanted to use the only real jelly polish I have, I suppose! Ahh, jellies. I wish they were cheaper than regular polish (since they technically have less pigment) but they aren’t.
