pretty in pink

When I was young my Mum basically had to tie me down and wrangle me into any pink clothing. She loves to joke about it now considering my love pink nail polish & lipgloss!
Here’s some eye candy to brighten up your working week.

lace nails | how to guide

I am obsessed with these nails!

I had only seen them in a magazine and after asking my local nail salon if they could do it (they didn’t know what I was talking about), I googled it and discovered a ‘how to’ guide from Shona Wallace from Studs & Lace.

What you’ll need:

  • Base coat (any color you choose)
  • Top coat (clear nail polish)
  • Small-patterned lace (so it fits over your nails, honeycomb pattern is simplest to work with) in any color
  • Small nail scissors

This is the Studs & Lace guide to perfecting the lace nail!

1. Take a stretch of pretty black lace and cut out pieces to fit each nail.

2. Paint your nails a base colour of your choosing- the most simple and stylish is a blush/nude tone, but it can look pretty with a bold colour as well. If you really want to channel a Studs & Lace look, opt for a duck-egg blue base and top with black lace. Models Own ‘Bloo Boo’ is a great pastel blue. Gorgeous!

3. While the nail polish is still wet, carefully apply each individual piece of lace.

4. Wait for the polish to dry and apply a clear top coat over the lace.

I’m going to try to do my nails this weekend! 
But what do you think of the lace nail?
