Gelish: French Lace

Michelle came over to get Gelish-ed for her birthday!

She left the design up to me, but mentioned that she liked my lace designs and also that she liked pastel colours, but not crystals. So, I made a simple French tip design with a bit of lace trim and left out embellishments. The result:

The base is Gelish Ambience – lovely translucent peachy pink with shimmer – perfect for turning an ordinary French mani into something special.

The tips are Gelish Go Girl, and I really shouldn’t have bothered making them perfect “smile lines”! I added the silver line as a finishing touch after drawing the lace trim, but it was more of an afterthought rather than planned… It would have helped to conceal any imperfections!

The lace was painted on with a custom-blended shade of grey acrylic paint. Overall, a very sweet and feminine look! Soft pink and grey have always worked well together for me. πŸ™‚

      Thanks… πŸ™‚ After reading so many Jap nail art magazines and experimenting with my own designs, it gets easier putting something together. Kinda like endless combinations and permutations heh
