Lace Dotticure

I recently saw a really cool manicure on Pinterest that was supposed to look like a lace doily. It had a heart shaped effect to it and freehand drawing on my nails isn't really something I have too much patience for, especially on my right hand. I decided to use the basic parts of the lace design and modify it to fit my needs. I used OPI Alpine Snow, OPI Black Onyx, China Glaze Recycle, and Girly Bits January Morning for this manicure. I chose these colors to match a dress I wore to a party on Saturday. Everyone loved my nails and several people asked what brand of stickers they were! Hahaha! 

I began by polishing my nails with Alpine Snow. When that was dry, I used striping tape to mark off the downward arrow. Above the striping tape, I polished Recycle and below the tape I used Black Onyx. I then pulled the tape off and added my dots with my dotting tools! Finally, I topped the entire manicure with January Morning, which is a gorgeous shimmery polish I won from Glittery & Polished. It was my first (and only) giveaway win ever! My ONLY complaint about this manicure was that my striping tape, which was red, seemed to bleed a little! I've NEVER had that happen before! You have to look really closely to notice it, but it realllllly annoys a perfectionist like me! They still look good, though! Enjoy! :)

  1. So pretty!!! I did a dotted tip for a wedding I went to this weekend and I wanted to make it lace-like by dotting the base color in the middle but it was a french tip and there wasn't enough contrast : ( This looks way cooler!!

  2. That really does look very pretty! And January Morning gives it a nice sparkle. Very nicely done!

    1. Thanks! January Morning definitely made it even more awesome! :)
