I picked up the MM44 lace stamping plate from Messy Mansion and have been dying to use it. Lace always feels very elegant to me, and today I decided to pair it with gold. On my middle finger, ring finger, and thumb I started with two coats of ProGel Rebel & Romance from the new Pretty in Punk Collection. Then I sponged on ProGel Grunged Groupie (also from the same collection) to get a gradient effect. Normally sponged-on gradients don’t work well with gel polish, but this time it transferred the shimmer/glitter from the polish which created a neat effect. I applied a thin layer of gel top coat over the gradient, cured and wiped, and then stamped the lace onto two nails. I used Mundo de Unos black stamping polish and the MM44 lace plate.
The gold on the other two nails is a gel polish with fine gold glitter in a clear base, and it applies with great coverage in 2-3 coats. Not to be dramatic, but I’m going to create a little mystery and suspense and not tell you what this polish is just yet. It will be available for sale in the US very soon, and you will hear about it here first!
