I have been really into lace nail art recently, as you'll see soon enough. The look of lace stamped over a nude nail has captivated me and inspired me to create this design. I'll try my best to space the others out some to keep it interesting.
My naked nails are not in good enough shape to go completely bare. I have some staining caused by using a nail strengthener as a basecoat that is growing out ever so slowly . So I scoured my stash for a nude polish that coordinated well with my skin tone.
The winner was OPI You Tickle My France-y. I applied 2 coats over my base coat and finished with HK Girl Fast Drying Topcoat as I always do before stamping.
I stamped with one of my favorite lacy designs from Dashica's Infinity 42 plate using Mundo de Unas Black.
I deliberated over adding black or red tips and finally chose the red thinking it would be different. I taped off with French guides and polished them with Julep Demi. It looked like the perfect oxblood red in the bottle, but ended up being too dark on my nails. So I re-taped them and went over Demi with OPI Big Apple Red. The two of them together gave me just the color I was hoping for.
The finishing touch was a little bit of bling from Daily Charme. I attached their Small Golden Rose and Retro Leaf charms to my middle finger with a dab of nail glue.
This was a fairly easy nail art design to create and it was so pretty! I got quite a few compliments wearing this one.
