Queen’s Lace: Stamped Nail Art with Cirque Colors

Today I have a damask stamped design for you. The intricate rose gold charm on my ring finger was my inspiration.

I am so hooked on rose gold right now! How about you? I swear I could wear it every day! And I just love that the shops are starting to carry more charms in rose gold. It was exciting to finally get my hands on a bottle of Cirque Colors Halcyon last year!

Design Details

I began this look with 2 coats of Cirque Colors Halcyon on my index, middle and pinky fingers and accented with Cirque Colors Ambrosia on my other nails. Then I finished with HK Girl Fast Drying Topcoat and allowed some drying time before stamping.

I stamped a favorite design from Lina Nail Art Supplies You’re a Damasque plate using Hit The Bottle Oh look...It’s Wine Thirty and my Big Bling from Clear Jelly Stamper.

I’ve been using this clear jelly stamper a lot recently and I think I’m finally getting a feel for it. Applying the right amount of pressure is critical with this stamper, and I used a lighter roll to pick up the design from this plate that has shallower etching.

Next, I applied a thin coat of Akzentz Shine On to my ring finger and placed a Rose Gold Circle Frame from Ocean Nail Supply. I filled the circle with Artbeads Swarovski Flatback in Rose Gold ss12.

Then I placed Daily Charme’s Queen’s Lace Rose Gold charm followed by more rose gold flatbacks in ss9 and ss7 and cured the nail.

Last I applied Akzentz Shine On to my middle finger and scooped on Daily Charme’s Metallic Rose Gold Glitter. I tapped off the excess and cured the nail.

The first time I used loose glitter with gel polish in a holiday design I adhered it using the inhibition layer, but it didn’t hold up very well. It really becomes one with the nail when it’s applied directly onto wet topcoat as I did here! The surface had a rough texture but the glitter stayed put.

  • love this baroque design!

  • Sooo elegant!!! Definitely fit for a Queen!! I like the rose gold very much, but on other people, so it’s lovely to experience it vicariously through you today. Every picture is stunning – I’m glad you shared them all. These nails are so intricate and simple at the same time — not sure how you pull that off, but it’s exquisite!! XO XO

    Oh and a random blurt: I think it might be my “morning brain”, but I was glad for the product picture where it all clicked for me how you created the design. It’s not that I didn’t follow what you wrote — it was clear and well written. And it’s funny too, as I was just hemming and hawing about shooting one for a post myself (they’re not as fun, are they?) and wondering if people like them…and now I know why. Because sometimes we just *need* to see all the stuff! LOL

    • Thanks so much my friend!! I’m happy to provide your rose gold fix! Intricate yet simple is the perfect way to describe these nails.

      I’m so glad you said something about the product recap photo! Every time I think about leaving it out, as I was doing here, I get some feedback in support of them. You are right, they aren’t as fun as the nail photos. BUT they are always in focus!! {{GRIN}} I think it’s a great way to wrap up a post and look forward to seeing how you do it! xoxo
