Nail Tutorial: Nude Lace

What you will need for this tutorial:
-Base Coat 
-Nude Nail Varnish 
-Black/Sparkly Black Nail Varnish
-Konad Stamper Kit and M57 image plate
-High Shine Top Coat

(Above: Konad Stamper Kit and M57 Image Plate)

Kit includes: 1 Double ended stamper, 1 image plate holder, 1 scraper and 1 M57 image plate.
(Links to where you can purchase this at the end of the post)

Step 1: Prepare your nails by filing them to desired shape, then wipe over with acetone to remove any oils (this makes the polish last longer).

Step 2: Apply base coat ( I used Sticky by Creative Nail Design)

Step 3: Apply two coats of a nude polish ( I used Blushing by Creative Nail Design). Allow to dry thoroughly or it will smudge when it comes to the next step.

Step 4: Time for the stamping! Paint black polish (I used Twilight by Ciate) over the lace design on the M57 image plate. Using the scraper, scrape off excess polish off the plate. Then press down hard onto the plate over the design with the larger side of the stamper. Then align the design with the tip of your fingernail and roll over firmly. (I did this at a slight angle, but you can do it straight across if you'd prefer)

Note: It takes a little while to get used to the stamper, but you will get the hang of it!

Step 5: Apply a high shine top coat. (I used Seche Vite)

..and voila! Easy nail art. 

If you have any questions feel free to ask, and don't forget to follow! :)
