Midweek Manicure // Laced Up

So this week’s manicure had a bit of a double life. First I started with just a simple two coat job of Essie’s Turquoise and Caicos.

Then, of course, I wanted to jazz it up. I had the idea to cut small pieces of lace down to the size of each nail and affix them onto each nail (I did that by painting a top coat onto the Turquoise and Caicos, placing the piece of lace down, then painting another coat of top coat over the top.

I thought it came out pretty cute – it looks better from far away. I definitely think that I’ll have to work on it, though – not everything comes out perfect the first time, trust me! I think some thinner lace would work really well so that it won’t look so clunky! But it’s always fun to experiment. What do you think?
