Gel Mani: Monochrome Lace

I love this lace design! It’s relatively quick and easy compared to the usual lattice lace designs I do, yet it looks fresh and pretty!

This is based on some designs I saw in my Japanese nail magazines, albeit with a modified colour scheme. Interestingly, part of it also involves the use of a flat brush and the “one-stroke” technique to achieve a gradient effect… See if you can spot the subtle effect?

For this set, I used Gelish Desert Sands as a base, then Angel Pro Gelly Polish in #14 (light grey) and #15 (dark grey) for the half moons, and #47 (white) for the art. πŸ™‚
