Lacey Nail Art

I am absolute in love with this manicure!! It is definitely in my top 10 favorites.

Colors I Used:
Accent Nails: "Primary Color" from Finger Paints, "Getting Miss Piggy with It" from OPI,  and "Pearl Black" form Kiss Nail Art.
Other Nails: "Primary Color" from Finger Paints, "Getting Miss Piggy with It" from OPI, "Strobe Light" from Pure Ice Crackle, and "Pearl Black" form Kiss Nail Art.

How I Did It:
I started by painting all my nails "Primary Color" with two coats of "Getting Miss Piggy With It" for my base coat. For my Ring finger I did a corset design. I painted a stripe of "White French Tip" in the middle of my nail. Then, I added three black dots of each side of the white stripe. I connected the dots using a criss-cross effect and a nail art brush. This was the first time I have ever tried a corset design and I love it!! I will definitely use it again in the future.
For the rest of my nails I painted a curved line sectioning off half of my nail. Then, I used "Strobe Light" and painted half of my nail with the black crackle polish. Lately, I added black semi-circles against the black half of my nail. This created a lace look to my nails.
I must say, I love the way this mani turned out. I achieved exactly the look I was going for and honestly I can't help but stare at my nails, haha.


Love and Nail Polish,
