NOTD: Lace up your nails in this trend !!

I just love all things feminine... Pink....pastels....bows.....hearts..... laces.....:)

You all know laces and sheers are trending right now.... I saw some lace nail-stickers online but sadly much like most avante-garde makeup products- not easily available in India....

But ..I was literally craving for this look.....Mind you this is my second attempt at nail art..I saw something like this on one blog and hence decided to try it....
So I created my own lace pattern with apparently one of the hottest selling konad plates- M57.
Also used as a base- Maybelline Colorama cafe latte, For black stamping polish- I used streetwear tiny bottle- black.

It combines 2 plate designs as shown below
M-57 Konad Plate

Step 1 - Apply base coat(I used maybelline cafe latte) - let it dry
Step 2 - Apply/stamp edge design( above right hand side)  first at the tips of your nails to create lace border.
Step 3- Apply net design in the same plate - carefully matching and placing it just above the lace border.
Is gets simpler after the first1-2 nails...... really I did it in 15 min I think... its easier than it looks.Tip- Place the stamp with the pattern on the side of the nail - match and roll+press from side to side.
Step 4- Clean the surrounding area of your nails( yeah they will get messy- with the net straying over your cuticles and beyond!)
Step 5 - Apply top coat.
I also tried to apply top coat before stamping- but it  gets smudged with the stamp edge- so only apply it at the end.

Ta it is


 Its not perfect but after the top coat it lasted a looooooong time and I had many-many compliments.
You can it with different bases or just use the net one if you are a beginner.


  1. That looks lovely!! I love stamping nail art.. they look so complicated but are quite effortless!!

    Have a look at my nail designs :)

    1. Thanks dear! I can safely say I am a novice in nail art and you are really good at it!:)

  2. Gosh, there's so much to do with nails these days. I am so bad at stamping and nail art. I thank Oriflame for the Very Me crackle polish they have. Its my quickest every manicure :P
    I would still love to try the lace thing, its so cute.
