This is an experiment I did with lace plates. I had bought them and decided to use them finally.
I painted my nail baby pink which fit to the hot pink lace.
I applied top coat and cut out squares out of the lace. I placed them over my nails. You have to cut arount the nail in
order for the design to look neat. Otherwise there will be loose lace strands.
For the lace to hold on to you nail you have to apply another thick coat of top coat. This will hold the lace in place.
This "design" was very different from what I am used to do.
But I liked the rough surface, since your nails usually feel very smooth and even. :)
