Look at this Born Pretty Store lace pattern stamping plate, it’s perfect. You want lacey nail art, pick a pattern! This plate from their large stamping plate collection has 6 different lacey patterns on it, all with quite different and intricate designs.
It instantly made me wish I had a sheer black polish and thanks to the lovely Christa, who gave me a tip on how to make my own, I managed to get a pretty perfect black lace mani.
This is how it turned out. To make the sheer polish, I bought a clear polish from Poundland, then I dropped in 5 drops at a time of Barry M Matte Black, testing it after the 5 to see if it was dark enough but still sheer. I didn’t want to push it and so I made one that needs 2 coats to look like this. I then stamped over with Konad Black.
The plate itself is flawless. As with all of the large plate range, it is a metal plate that comes on a plastic backing, the images are etched at the right depth and does not have any marks or imperfections.
