Artsy Wednesday: Lacy Nails

This week for Artsy Wednesday the theme is lacy nails. I was running out of time for this one, and I didn't have any real lace or lace stamps handy, so I freehanded a lace design using a nail art brush:


The base is ulta3 Lilac Bloom from the gorgeous Pretty Pastels collection, which I'm currently in love with. The lace is ulta3 Gold Rush Fever. You can kind of see how I lost interest as I progressed from index to little finger haha...

I'm really loving the pastel-and-gold combo for Spring, so you'll be seeing quite a lot more of it since I've recently acquire about 15 gorgeous pastel polishes! :)

More lacy nails from some talented ladies:

    1. I'm pretty impressed with the freehand myself, except for on the pinky haha... I guess that's what happens when you work on the nails one by one instead of doing small bits of the design across all nails!

    2. Aww, I don't think anyone can see your mistake but you, hon. Must be a perfectionist, eh?

  9. Such a pretty combination. I was surprised that Bundle Monster didn't really have any lacy stamps. You did a great job free handing it. :)
