Racy Lacy


Day 97

Guten tag, people! :-P

I decided for today's nails, I would jump on the lace nail bandwagon, and give it a whirl. Let me tell you, it's HARD. It's also VERY uncomfortable, because the edges are really rough. This would probably work best on artificial nails, were you could get the fit a lot better and all that jazz. I dunno, from a foot or more away they look kinda rad, but they're definitely not for up close viewing... at least not mine, anyway. It took forever though, so I decided to post it :-P



I used American Apparel Palm Springs as a base for all nails except the ring finger, where I used China Glaze Salsa. The lace was just some cheap lace edging I got at Wal-mart. Topped it off with 3 or so coats of Seche Vite top coat... I dunno, I lost count.

I dunno, all in all, not my favorite, but they can't all be winners. :-D

  5. I'm trying this on my friend soon. did you measure your nail first then cut the lace? i saw a tutorial on it online and the girl measured and cut like 8 times! it was a process...

  6. I think they look pretty awesome but I'd probably cut them and then stick them on false ones... way too much effort for me. I'm copying your zip nails tomorrow though. Hey...a little lace poking out of the zips would look great! Waaaay too hard though!

  12. Oh my god... Those must have been a real pain to get off!!! Easier or harder than glitter??

  13. How about putting them on for a bit, painting colour on top then removing the lace when its kinda dry? To get the outline of the lace that is. Wonder if it'd work! But anyway cannot imagine the amount of work you put in!! Amazing (:

  17. Konad needs to make a plate that's just a big solid lace print. Then you could pick and choose sections for each nail, so they'd all be unique and you could have the look of lace nails without the feeling.

  18. Brynne, I agree, I've thought that before too, I also think that they should do custom ones, or just more patterny ones.

  19. They look interesting, but seem sooooo unsanitary... so many nooks and crannies in the lace to get nasty crusties stuck, ew!
