Lacey with a Bit of Holo

Hey, everyone!

I was feeling a vibe of elegance when coming up with this mani, so this one is a bit more delicate than most designs I wear. Keep reading to find out more!

I came to two realizations while wearing this manicure. The first was that I need to do French tips more often because OH MY GOODNESS, YES! And the second was that holographic polish makes everything one million times better! Anyway, on to how I got this look. After my (always) base coat was dry, I did two coats of Color Club Eternal Beauty on my thumb and ring finger, and between 3 and 4 coats of a self-made sheer black franken polish on my other fingers. I followed the sheer black with a thin coat of Fair Maiden Polish Fairy Godmother holo topcoat (are you getting tired of me using this yet? TOO BAD!). When all of my nails were dry, I then used my liquid latex (about which I will be sharing in tomorrow's post) to mask off my nail tips for French tips. Then I simply peeled off the latex and instant clean tip! Then I stamped using black polish and Messy Mansion stamping plate #44, which is the only lace stamping plate I will ever need, it's so perfect! I finished off with topcoat, cleaned up, and called it good. Unfortunately, we've had pretty cloudy weather lately so no sunshine pics... sadness! Overall I really liked wearing this look and will definitely keep it in mind for elegant occasions!
