NOTD: Tickle My Lace-y

I'm officially the queen of lame names =D Anyway, I hated yesterday's mani so much, that I had to change it. My friend Jeanette from the-swatchaholic has done a wonderful mani recently, inspired by MAC's Love Lace collection. OMG, it's exactly my taste! I liked it so much that it inspired me to do something similar. Although mine is not nearly as nice as hers, I still put a lot of effort to avoid ruining it =D And I guess I'm going to get MAC Light Affair, or it's dupe, Essie Body Language.
This mani is made of 4 coats of OPI Tickle My France-y, lace image from konad plate m37, special polish in black and freehanded french tips. The first image is taken with flash, but although the color is not correct, I like it because it looks so eerie =D



Without flash:

I even managed to stamp side-by-side =) I guess I'm proud of myself =D

It has been 18 days since I've started Barielle, and I guess my nails actually grew somehow slower. !How is this even possible? =) I'll continue using the product, but I honestly can't say it made my nails grow any faster. If I'm not terribly mistaken, this product is waste of money, growth-wise.

  5. Well done, Konad Queen. :) I love the lingerie spirit, it's very sexy. Tickle My France-y is one of my fav polish ever, a real go-to shade and I love it because it is so more naughty than it seems.

  8. OMG I love this, I have this plate but am way too scared to use this design as I know I would never get it stamped side by side as you have done. Well done you!!! It looks amazing.

  12. thank you guys =) BabyD, I thought it would be impossible to line them up side by side, but my trick was to align the design parallel to the sides of the stamper. I stamped the thumb in the middle, then filled the sides with two additional stamps. I didn't dare to stamp the two halves, either!
    Brooke, no, I didn't send my hands to ALU because I thought the design would be too much =) If I thought of taking a photo before stamping, maybe I could =))
    Thank you Danica, Diva's Polish and Thess =)))

  13. So gorgeous Deniz! Now you make we want to get both m37 and Tickle My France-y! :D

    I had to work like a surgeon on my Lace manicure too. It os so much work to get the lace motifs right on the nail. I had to redo three nails but I just love classy looks like cremes with Lace motifs. :)

    *continues to stare at your stunning konadicure*

  14. Thank you, Jeanette! I feel the same for your nails! I'm still not over your konadicure! =DDD Today I'm going to visit MAC to see if they have Light Affair =) Oh, the stamping was really some piece of work, I can't imagine doing the same with metallics =) <3
