Bow and Lace Nails


February 4, 2013
I had this picture on Instagram and recieved a lot of request for a tutorial.  Unfortunately I did not take 
photos Step By Step so hopefully I can write it for you. I listed the 'colour type' and linked it to the one I used in the above photo. You can always use this picture for inspiration and create your own.  My rule for most nail looks is that if I want to alternate nail colours I tend to stick to 4 colours so it doesn't look too busy.

***Please note***After the Polish and 2 top coats, I applied the jewels. 
Thumb : Base Coat from Sally Hansen , 2 Coats of Dark Teal ( Mary Kay - Tempting Teal ), on the tip 1/3 of the nail I used a Clear Polish with Silver Glitter in it ( China Glaze - Silver Lining ) and glued on this really cute Bow right underneath it. 

Index : Base Coat from Sally Hansen , 2 Coats of Coral ( Chna Glaze Flip FLop Fantasy ) on half of the nail diagonally as shown in the above picture, I used a black and white striping nail polish and created diagonal lines.  I topped it off with black matte small round crystals for effect.

Middle :  Base Coat from Sally Hansen , 2 Coats of Dark Teal ( Mary Kay - Tempting Teal ), and on the bottom center near the cuticle I applied a pink tear drop crystal

Ring : Base Coat from Sally Hansen , 2 Coats of Coral ( Chna Glaze Flip FLop Fantasy ) , Using the white striping nail polish I striped 4 lines horizontally to create some contrast to the nail . Then I used the Black Striping pen to create a lace looking design and attached the Black Bow just below the center of the nails

Pinky : Base Coat from Sally Hansen , 2 Coats of Dark Teal ( Mary Kay - Tempting Teal ), and applied 4 clear crystals right down the center.
