31 Days of Pink: October 15
For the fifteenth day of our pink nail art Odyssey, we're giving you a DIY lace manicure using essie cosmetics. Aside from raising awareness for a cause very near and dear to our hearts, we're giving something extra to you, dear readers. We're awarding the essie BCA collection to a reader who comes up with the most clever name for today's manicure.
This lacey, French manicure was inspired by the lingerie! We took the traditional Frenchie and amped it up with hot pink polish, black lace and fishnets.
What you'll need:
- darker, brighter pink polish. We used essie polish in Fiesta.
- black fishnet stockings
- black lace
- nail glue
- a thin, sturdy paint brush
- scissors or cuticle cutters
Step 1: Apply two coats of the light pink polish. Wait for them to dry a bit.
Step 2: Using your thin brush, paint a French mani along the edge of each nail using your brighter pink polish.
Step 3: Gently apply small pieces of lace and fishnet using a dot of nail glue. Gently pat down the fabric. We used fishnet on the ring finger and thumb, and lace on the rest of the nails.
Step 4: Using a scissor or cuticle cutter, snip off the excess material around each nail.
Step 5: Enjoy your sexy new mani!
