Lace Wedding Nails Then and Now

It's wedding season! That means wedding nails!

 Last year boyfriends mother got married and I painted a neutral and white lace design on her nails with a Phillies P on the thumb. (They're big baseball fans) Unfortunately I couldn't find a picture of the whole mani, but here is the Phillies logo.

 To match my dress I created navy blue nails with white lace accents. Keep in mind this is when I first started nail art and I was not very experienced.

Bleh, talk about needing clean up!

I decided to revisit this theme now that it is wedding season again!  This is also a fun way to see how far I've come in nail art.  

I wanted to keep the blue and lace theme but make it more pastel and light, like something I could see a bride wearing.

I used Essie Bikini So Teeny as the blue base and hand painted the lace design on the ringer finger.  A few people were surprised and actually thought it might be a stamp at first!  I'm so flattered. :)

Here is a close up.  You can see each individual little brush stroke. 

What do you think about these wedding nails?  Would you wear them to your wedding?  Did you have a special mani for your big day?  Let me know in the comments.


  1. That lace design really is amazing, very pretty! :)

  2. Beyond stunning! Beats me how you can paint like that! What brush/tool did you use for this?

  3. I love the phillies nails for her wedding! How cute!!

  4. You’ve really become a great writer. I remember when I first started visiting this blog and I thought you had a lot of potential. It’s great to see your hard work paying off and it looks like you’re getting a ton of comments. Congrats!

  5. Lovely indeed. I super like the lightness of color and the uniqueness of it. A must try!
