Wake up your inner craftswoman! This is a very winter-ish, antique-like design, perfect if you have some scissors and some time to kill.
Step 1. Paint your nails in any colour you like. I used China Glaze – Charmed, I’m Sure.
It’s that easy! Just be careful with deciding to add a layer of top coat over the lace, because this has both an advantage and a disadvantage: a top coat can be very useful, since the lace is soft and its quality tends to decline after a few days (you just don’t realise how many times you wash your hands!).
On the other hand, though, adding a top coat hardens the lace and can even create some sharp edges. I tried this with a generous amount of top coat on my thumb, and it looked just different, less beautiful. Perhaps the sharpness can be solved by adding even more top coat, but I didn’t feel like using a whole bottle on one mani 😉
So in the end, I stuck with the soft, delicate lace and just paid attention to what I was doing. After a few days, I just cut some loose threads and it was almost as good as new.
And it looks so pretty!!
