Pinterest Week - Nude Lace

Hey guys!

Welcome to Day 3 of Pinterest Week!

I really wanted to include at least one stamping design in Pinterest Week, but after my most recent stamping fail (which a lot of you told me wasn't too bad of a fail after all!), I was hesitant. But, practice makes perfect, so I powered through another full nail stamping design. Lo and behold, it was a success!

Here's a link to my pin for this design, and here's the link to the original source.


To get this nude and black lace look, I started with a base of Color Club Nomadic in Nude. The original design used a Red Angel plate but since I don't own any RA plates, I flipped through my Bundle Monster sets instead. I thought that the floral image on BM-306 seemed like a suitable substitute, so I chose that and stamped using Konad Black. Finally, I mattified everything using Joe Fresh Matte Top Coat.


I'm super proud of myself for finally being successful in stamping a full nail design! I've had success before with smaller images, but I've always had problems with full nail images. Hopefully I've addressed all those problems and can continue to be successful in all my stamping designs!


I hope that you all liked today's design! And stay tuned for another Pinterest recreation tomorrow!

  8. Awww! That's such a nice compliment, and I love your version! :) I think this kinda mani looks great on your long nails, and the image you picked is one of the images that I'd get that BM set for, so yep, love it! And by the looks of it you've been stamping full nails for ages, so I'm sure it won't be much of a prob for you next time either!

  9. Really beautiful! Would you be able to share some stamping tips? I too have had difficulty stamping larger images and have not yet been successful. I wonder if I'm doing something wrong. Thanks and I love your blog! :)

  10. This mani looked familiar since I did this same stamp over a neutral, too. Mine was stamped in purple though... yours looks very dramatic in black and nude!
