Give The People Something To Talk About: Lace Manicured Nails

You love fashion but you also love to be unique.  If your feeling a little less inspired to come up with a new nail art design, the lace manicure is a perfect addition to your personal style.  This design will surely get people talking about you- but in a good way.
Lace Manicure DIY Ingredients:
1/2 Yard Lace From A Ribbon Spool
A Base Coat
A Base Color
Non-Permanent Glue
Thick Clear Top Coat
A Toothpick
Wax Paper
To recreate this look, first prep your nails with a base coat and a base color because this DIY does involve glue and you do not want to glue lace directly to your nails. Try Essie’s Protein Base Coat and Color Club’s Who Are You Wearing?. You will want to choose a base color that contrasts well with the color of your lace.
Next, lay the lace over a nail and with a pair of small scissors, we used eyebrow scissors, cut the lace to the size of your nail. You will want the lace to be slightly shorter than the length of your nails – it is very important that it does not extend beyond your nail, else you will not be able to seal it with the top coat. Lay a piece of lace on wax paper, coat the back side with glue using a toothpick, and place the lace on your nail pressing the sides down with the toothpick. Try Hold the Foam! glue because it has an immediate grip, yet allows you to reposition the lace before it dries. Repeat the trim and glue process for your remaining nails.
Finish the manicure with a couple of applications of a very thick clear top coat until the edges are sealed and the nail is smooth to the touch. Try  Konad Clear Top Coat because it is super thick for finishing nail stamping designs.
