AN Monday theme - Bridal Nail Design

This was lots of fun to do and I really am completely in love with my design. It looks 100 times better in real life than in photos. There's just something soft and feminine with the add of lace that makes me just love it. This was actually my 2nd design, I liked the first one but wasn't in love with it so I tried again :).

There were a few steps to get to this look. I started with a base of Kester Black French White - the absolute best white I've ever used. Not streaky applies like a dream. Then one coat of OPI Pirouette My Whistle on all fingers but my ring finger. I then top coated all nails before stamping my ring finger with Essie No Place Like Chrome and Pueen Plate 27. I topped coated the stamp to seal the design. I then went over every nail with Celestial Cosmetic's Matte Top Coat. Next step on my ring finger was a coat of OPI Don't Touch My Tutu, let that dry and used Celestial Cosmetic's matte top coat. Before that fully dried I add the 3 Swarovski crystals. Last step I used Konad white and the Pueen plate 27 to go over my remaining nails. I love how it looks like a brocade in the end and while I'd still probably like the ring finger to have that effect I still just love it!! The glitter from Pirouette My Whistle shines through when the sun hits which gives an extra pop.

and this was my first design, I sill quite like this one, just didn't love it :)
