Antique Laces ft Lady Queen

I have another lovely Lady Queen plate today from the Lace Series! BC-03 has some seriously gorgeous images with such delicate fine lines that actually stamp so very well! Lets get right into these manis shall we?

I used a couple of warm vintage tones with these lace images, and the first is Delush Olive You Long Time. Such a cheeky name for this olive metallic! It's made extra special by gold shimmer and color shifting flakes in every color of the rainbow! I stamped this stunning lace drape pattern over top in Mundo de Uñas Gold and added some pearl decals from Julep to complete the antique look. You can see how perfectly everything stamped the very first time, even with my extra moments spent positioning my clear stamper. Here's a swatch of the base polish because it truly deserves one.

This next look started with a base of Color Club Oh Deer, and I knew I wanted to use this super detailed lace image but I needed an accent! These dried flowers were absolutely PERFECT, and it reminds me of those resin necklaces we used to wear in the nineties.

I am just so in love with this caramel leaning mustard shade, especially paired with the beautiful Mundo de Uñas Bones. You might have noticed a couple of bald spots in the lace, for aesthetics lets assume those are tattered antique laces. Practically speaking these images picked up perfectly, but I took my time trying to get good placement on the nail and ended up not getting a perfect transfer (or placement) in the end! My bad, next time I'll make decals since I can't position stamps any faster than a snail's pace! Anyhow I hope you enjoyed these manis, I am honestly quite smitten with this plate's super ornate lace images. You can find it at Lady Queen Beauty and should you go on any shopping sprees, feel free to use my code EVBS15 for 15% off! See you soon!
