FriDIY: Lace Nails

If I haven't touched on it before, there is no better time than now to let you in on one thing. I'm a hoarder.  This little piece of lace is from my friend Vanessa's wedding invitiations. She got married June 2010. But I knew it was just too pretty to pitch and a short 1.5 years later, it came in handy. I had some down time during the Giants game last weekend so I cut it up into 10 small pieces for a little nail DIY.
- Essie's 'Fiji' nail polish
- small piece of lace
- nail scissors
- clear top coat

{paint one coat of Essie's 'Fiji' or other color of your liking}
{cut lace into small pieces the width of your nail - I just eye-balled it and trimmed with nail scissors afterwards}
{apply another coat of polish, quickly place lace piece on top and press to secure. Allow lace to dry in polish and later apply two layers of top coat}


  1. Looovee! I have black lace so I'm going to try it with a lighter nail polish or maybe with a dark polish just to add texture..So many options lol Thanks for sharing!

  2. first of all, loved that you said "pitch". secondly, can you just do this for me? i know i don't have the patience for this. but its sooo pretty!

  3. Agree with Christin -- can you paint my nails? haha. see you soon!

  4. Love your nails, you're so creative!! I would never think about using lace on my nails :)
