Gelish Mani: Burlesque Corset

For Winnie’s birthday, she decided to go for a corset design, but in a glitter base. She also wanted to mix things up a little, so I tweaked the design for her. The result:

I used Gelish Desert Sands as the base and Gelish Water Field for the tips, then did the nail art in acrylic paint. For the thumbs, I created a design to look like the bodice of a corset, laced up in the centre and with mesh panels at the side. For the ring finger, in order to complement a ribbon charm, I did lines to look like fishnet stockings. The rest of the nails were the usual corset design that I do, representing the top of the corset, with ruffles lining the bust and laced up in the centre.

The light glittery base looks great with the black details! A very different look from the usual pink or red base that I do!
