Lace Illusion

Hi all!

While browsing, I stumbled on a design on the Orly website. It's called 'animal' - although I don't know where the animal reference comes from - and it can be found here. I decided to copy the idea with a couple of changes :) Let's take a look!

I randomly placed black scribbles with China Glaze Ink (I need to get myself a bottle of black creme.. Grr) and scribbled a little more with RBL Stormy. In the original design, lace was places on top of the scribbly look, but since I don't have any lace to put on my nails, I decided to go with Konad imageplate M57. I stamped the image with Konad special polish in Black Pearl and voila!

  2. Wow it looks amazing! I think you did a great job in recreating the look and imo the stamping is better than having lace applied on the nails.
    I am definitely gonna try this too.

  4. I love how this looks! When the photo first started loading in my google reader I thought you'd done one of those real-lace mani's where you set pieces of lace on your finger and sealed them with topcoat. So cool!

    (And btw, Wet'n'Wild Black Creme is on its way to you!)

  8. I don't really see a lace effect, but I do see the animal reference: it's very snake skin like!
