DIY |Very Simple Sheer Black Lace Nail Art You’ll Love To Try
If you love lace designs, then you will certainly fall for this lace nail art tutorial I’ve prepared just for you.
It’s a popular design that women use not only for dresses but also for underwear and even shoes! Every female on earth has at least one lace item in her drawer (I have several) and it’s only logical to recreate the patterns on your nails as well. Instead of using virginal white, however, I’ll be teaching you to make black lace here!
Let’s find out how to have this stunning babe on our nails.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED TO MAKE THIS GORGEOUS LACE NAIL ART:
- Base Coat- OPI ‘Nail Envy Original’
- Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure ‘Clear’d For Takeoff’
- Wet’N’Wild ‘Black Creme’
- Zoya ‘Brigitte’
- Top Coat- Seche Vite
- Brushes- Winstonia ‘Fine Liner Set’
Step 1: Base Coat
Begin with a base coat to protect your natural nails. Always wear a base coat whenever you get a new manicure. It will help keep your nails strong and healthy despite the chemicals that come with polishes and nail polish removers.
Step 2: Sheer Black Polish
You’re going to need a sheer black polish for this next step. To make this, mix 1 part black polish with 3 parts clear polish. Apply the sheer black polish to your ring finger nail. Let that dry then you’re ready to add some details.
Tip: You might need two or three coats to get this color to the right opacity.
Step 3: Brackets
Use a nail art brush and a black polish to do a lace design. Start off by making 3 bracket shape lines to divide your nail. Make a criss-crossing lattice pattern at the bottom bracket. Then on top of that bracket, use the body of the brush bristles to make clusters of three petaled ruffles.
You can also do the same design on your thumb.
Step 4: The Dots
Add dots along the middle bracket and have circle ruffles on the top one. You don’t have to copy this design entirely. The beauty of following lace designs is you can really get creative and do any sort of pattern you’d like. You can search for other designs that you think will look best on your nails!
Step 5: Nude Polish
For a classier touch to your manicure, apply a nude color polish on the rest of your nails. This will make the lace nail art stand out more.
Step 6: Top Coat
Before you apply your matte top coat, go over your lace design nails with a normal fast-drying top coat to ensure the design won’t smear. I will also give a smooth finish for the matte top coat.
Step 7: Finishing Touch
And to take it up one more notch, add some rhinestones on your middle fingernail. Use a nail glue to attach the stones. Doesn’t it give you the feel of a beautiful black lace outfit with a gorgeous necklace as an accessory?
And you’re done!
I personally love how stunningly classy this nail design looks!
