Girly-Girl Nail Art Challenge Day 3

Hello Lacquer Luvers & welcome to my Day 3 post for the Girly-Girl Nail Art Challenge. I realize that I promised to have this post up yesterday but I spent the day with my mother-in-law doing some shopping for Baby Gabby & making dinner. I had a really good time and it was nice to get out of the house all day. Day 3 of the challenge calls for "Delicate and Elegant: Adorn yourself with a lovely pattern, color, or technique."

For my mani today, I thought that nothing is more delicate than lace and nothing is more elegant that gold. I began this manicure with a base of Essie Grow Faster followed by one coat of ORLY Luxe. This is my go-to gold polish since it's a beautiful foil and completely opaque in one coat (also works great for stamping). Next I used my Konad Special Stamping Polish in black and BM21 to stamp on a lace-like image. I finished this manicure with a coat of Essie Good To Go topcoat.

Pretty, right?

I love this mani! It kind of reminds me of wallpaper but it's lacey, right? What do you think of this mani luvs? To see some more delicate and elegant nails, check out these blog posts of the other girls partaking in this challenge:

  1. hey can you change my link info please. i had to change my url! (:

  2. it does look like wallpaper but Gorgeous!

  3. So this is gorgeous! Before you take it off (recycling ftw!), you should apply the thinnest black french tip you can. Just enough to cover a bit of tip wear...I can envision this in my head and I would love to see it before you move on to the next day of the challenge :D Just a super thin black'll be the perfect accent to the stamping in my opinion!

  4. This is gorgeous! Your stamping is beautiful :)

  5. Gorgeous! Those colours look so beautiful together, especially with that stamp. Very chic
