Golden Oldie Thursdays: Lilac

Ello!

Things look different on the blog today! Not really. I just switched the sidebar to the right. I'm planning on updating the blog this month and am currently working on some new designs (; I have a bunch of things that I want to try but the code in the blogger template is confusing....so we'll see how much I actually do.

Anywho, onto the nails!

I was going for kind of a grunge-y base with the lace design over top but I'm not quite sure it's working all that well.

Here's what I used:

This week's polish was easy to pick considering that I own a polish with lilac right in the name! Winning!

These nails started with 2 coats of Lacey Lilac followed by some black sponged on with saran wrap. That then got a layer of Disco Ball and some top coat. I then freehanded on the lace pattern and dotted on the little ruffles.

I don't know how I feel about these nails. I'm happy with my stripes here but I think there's a disconnect between the base and the lace. Maybe? Haha let me know what you think! (:

Here are the upcoming themes:

And a song for today:
Ellie Goulding - Burn

Thanks for reading guys!

  1. I really like the contrast of the two patterns, and the ruffles on your halfmoons are perfect!
