Lace Manicure DIY Ingredients:
- 1/2 Yard Lace From A Ribbon Spool
- A Base Coat
- A Base Color
- Non-Permanent Glue
- Thick Clear Top Coat
- A Toothpick
- Wax Paper
To recreate this look, first prep your nails with a base coat and a base color because this DIY does involve glue and you do not want to glue lace directly to your nails. I used Essie’s Protein Base Coat and Color Club’s Who Are You Wearing?. You will want to choose a base color that contrasts well with the color of your lace.
Next, lay the lace over a nail and with a pair of small scissors, we used eyebrow scissors, cut the lace to the size of your nail. You will want the lace to be slightly shorter than the length of your nails – it is very important that it does not extend beyond your nail, else you will not be able to seal it with the top coat. Lay a piece of lace on wax paper, coat the back side with glue using a toothpick, and place the lace on your nail pressing the sides down with the toothpick. We usedHold the Foam! glue because it has an immediate grip, yet allows you to reposition the lace before it dries. Repeat the trim and glue process for your remaining nails.
Finish the manicure with a couple of applications of a very thick clear top coat until the edges are sealed and the nail is smooth to the touch. We used the Konad Clear Top Coat because it is super thick for finishing nail stamping designs.
I’m not sure that this manicure will last long, but it is perfect for a girl’s night out or special occasion! Thanks so much to my sister for taking the time to decorate my nails. Our manicure party was so fun! So what do you think of this manicure? Would you wear this look?
