vintage lace, redone

[poor lighting, it looks better in real life haha]

i added vintage lace on top of my pink nail polish. i think it looks cool. sort of lady gaga-ish. you have to trim your lace to the size of your nails, and then "glue" the lace on. i just coated the nail with topcoat, put the lace in place, and then loaded up the topcoat on top of the lace. i did this last night and it has worked good so far. there are a few loose strings of lace that are hanging over, but you just need to trim those off if that happens. it was easier than i thought it was going to be, and a pretty cool idea. i wanted to do black lace but i didn't have any, so gray was the next best thing. the worst part was cutting the lace to the same size as your nail, which really wasn't even that hard or too time consuming. and jay-z only knocked some lace pieces to the floor one time. he wanted to feel like lady gaga too, of course. what do you think? will you be trying this out?

i'm calling a clear coat good for now. but perhaps someday i'll have hands free long enough to paint my nails again :)
