Hello lovelies,

 

Fancy some romantic lace nails? I've hand painted these as a possible bridal design some time ago but I didn't like them as much so I haven't published them earlier.

 

I have used Cadillacquer Pinkman as a base colour, white acrylic paint for the lace design and Swarovski crystals from Stephen Arnold e-shop.

Hope you enjoyed today's manicure and stay tuned for more nails tomorrow!

 

Have a lovely day! x

 

Why you ask? Because it took so incredibly long that I didn't even finish all nails!

It all started with me drawing this pattern on a piece of paper few months ago. I don't remember if I saw it somewhere but I'm sure it must have been done before. I finally decided to do this mani and this is the result:

I have started with a subtle gradient using OPI Toucan Do It If You Try and Red Hot Rio from the Brazil collection.Then I've painted white lines forming triangular patterns (tutorial here, stop at step 3) using OPI Alpine Snow. Then it was time to paint the inner black lines highlighting the triangles. I've used black acrylic paint but it took so long that I've decided to do only three nails.

 

I must say I actually really liked the result and the combination of two types on design. I wore the nails for three days and it pained me so much to take them off :(
