Classy Sparkly Lace Manicure

I just received a bunch of new stamping products that I wanted to try, so I created this Black Friday sparkly lace manicure with them.

Here are the polish colors that I used:

From left to right: Sally Hansen Diamond Strength No Chip Nail Color in Black Diamond, Sephora by OPI top coat in Indi-go With the Flow, and Ya Qin An stamping polish in Color 19.

I started by painting my nails Black Friday black with Black Diamond.  The color has silver microglitter in it, so it already looks shimmery.

Black Diamond nail polish by Sally Hansen.

For extra sparkle, I added Indi-go With the Flow over the black base.  The look reminds me of what snowfall looks like at night.

Indi-go With the Flow adds a little extra sparkle.  Unfortunately it didn’t photograph as well as it looks in person.

For the lace pattern, I used plate BPL-028 from Born Pretty Store.  I used the edge of the pattern on the bottom row of the plate, 2nd from the left.

BPL-028 from Born Pretty Store has all the lace doily patterns that you could ever want.

Stamping was a little challenging to get the heart portion centered just right.  I used  a marshmallow stamper to help simplify the alignment process, but the lines of the pattern never transfer as crisply as they do with my Konad stamper.  I used Color 19, a pale light blue color, from Ya Qin An to do the stamping.  Honestly, I don’t know if that’s the name of the color because the label is all in Chinese, but 19 was the name for the shade on the website where I got it.

I love the lace cuticle detail, although I wish the polish transferred more consistently across the pattern.

The hole in the heart was begging to be filled with a rhinestone so I added one on each nail.

Glitzy lace.

And that’s all she wrote!  It’s a great sophisticated and elegant look for any occasion.

Hope you got all the deals you wanted over the past few days.  I’m looking forward to receiving even more nail products in the mail from my shopping sprees online!  😉  Happy polishing!
