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. :)
This is the costume I wore for my ballet preformance. I played an evil fairy and added a nail design to match the wardrobe.
You can use this as inspiration: to match nails and outfits, since I know you do not own the same exact clothes as I do and have different tastes. I just like to keep the colors the same and add whatever feels to fit to the outfit what it may stand for. :P

These nails are insipired by the bad fairy costume I wore for a preformance.
I tried to maintain a eery and wicked feel.
Also I used ColorClub- wild and willing.
The material I wore had a black undertone and shone in different color shades. As does the ColorClub nail polish.
A perfect match!! :D
I use the polish as a top coat,since it can be sheer and "see-through".
So first apply a black or red base color. I used red,since the skirt I wore was more red than black.

This design I created particularly for a ballet preformance I had. I wore a red tutu with one single white rose placed on my hip.
I added some light grey swirls to give more dimension and a rhinestone to add some shine. :)
If you are interested, hre are a few pictures of the preformance. :)
I am sorry about not posting anything lately.
I feel very ashamed and awful about that.
Yet, I did not succumb to laziness as you might think.
My computer simply broke down in june. All my work and images are on it and I hope even if my PC will never work again
that the documents will not be lost. There are many I have not uploaded yet.
Otherthanthat I am on vacation and do not take my time for nail art as much.
I appreciate you patience :)
Here's to hoping for the best!
This is an older design. I haven't uploaded it yet,because I do not think it is anything special.
One red swirl, and lots of little blue swirls and dots filling in the empty space.
I added some glitter dust at the tip which the camera obviously did not pick up very well.
1) Apply base coat.
2) Apply desired nail polish colour.
-take a brush and acrylic paint to carry out the following steps
3) Apply small black triangles on the tip of the nails (sry for the camera flash)
4) Draw black inflected lines evolving from the triangles. Adjust the transition from triangle to line. These lines add to a
5) Add white lines = more dimension
6) Apply black particles and a top coat
7) I decided to apply some glitter to the base. This design was created to match a dance costume of mine. Normally I would have applied the glitter beforehand. It wasn't until later,that I noticed the costume and the nails do not match perfectly. Something was missing: The sparkle! :)
The material I am holding is the skirt I wore.
