Lacey Christmas Nails


Hi everyone! For this Christmas themed post I want to share this green mani with lace accents with you. Although lace isn't something Christmassy per se, I feel like it suits this time of the year well. The fine details - especially in white - remind me of a cosy crochet tablecloth at Christmas dinners, or a crochet rug that goes under the Christmas tree with all the presents on top, or dresses with crochet Peter Pan collars. So yeah, Christmas/crochet associations all over the place! Or maybe that's just me.

Anyway, to make this mani I started with two coats of the green, which is Orly Lucky Duck. I then used a white striper polish from the brand Janet to freehand the lace. I already liked it with just the green and white, but just to add a highlight color I made the little red cross. (Which is obviously a tiny bow. If you squint.)

That's it for today, I hope you like it and thanks for dropping by!

  1. Hey Jane! I was going thru my Tumblr dashboard and I saw this post. I immediately thought "it's a repost of an old pic", but then "but I've never seen this before", and then "hmmm interesting..."

    I'm very glad that you're blogging again. You're are one of the nail bloggers that made me fall in love with nail art. I remember recreating one of your tape manis when I started my own blog.

    You're a extremely cretive and inspiring person! I hope that you're well.

    Best wishes!

  4. Or it looks like a doily ! :) But actually, it makes me think of Bavaria at Christmas.... Talk of weird associations ;)

    Anyway, it's pretty and Lucky Duck is beautiful.

  6. Hi! Good to see you posting again, I love your manicures, so inspiring. Yesterday, I pulled out my lace tablecloth for Christmas, so I am on board with this manicure and theme 100%. Also, I crochet every year at this time, gifts and hats always seem to appear under the tree! Lots of love and holiday warmth to you and yours. Also, aren't green nails the best?

    1. Thanks for leaving a comment :) How cool is it you make your own crochet gifts! I also like to sew gifts (pillowcase, pouches etc.) but I have yet to learn how to do crochet. Lots of love to you too! And yeah, green (and blue) nails are the best :D
