lace+nails+some exciting news

recently i went on one of my favorite blogs ( and she had a diy section and she had created this fantastic nail design (or art) using a little lace and clear nail polish. so i tried it out, and heres a little play by play.

I went to walmart and purchased about 6 inches of black lace ribbon, [i think it was about 64 cents]. and sally hansens clear nail polish, which i would suggest because sally hansen's nail polish is a really good quality and the clear polish holds a lot better than the cheaper off brands.

then i cut squares  of the lace that were about the size of each of my fingernails.

then, i put a layer of the clear nail polish down on my first nail, and quickly put the corresponding square of lace on my nail, using the clear polish as kind of a glue.

i let it dry and trimmed off the excess with small scissors and/or sharp nail clippers.

put one more layer of nail polish on top, and file any excess away!

oh! and within the next couple of days i will be announcing a giveaway, so keep checking back!



  1. Your lace nails look so cool - I would love to try it out with some nude colored lace.
