Happy Solstice!

I’m trying not to let the holidays get the best of me.  It can all be overwhelming.  Plus, one of my high school friends started a mommy blog and it is bringing out the Krampus in me.

Luckily some dear readers have sent me some lovely tips.  This has brightened my spirits and given me the will to blog.

Speaking of tips, check out these amazing nails via thelooksforless.com

This is much cooler than the lace decals I have tried.  To get this effect the blogger actually glued lace to her nails.  Part of me wants to try this, but I might be too frightened to put glue on my nails.   Maybe next year.

Coincidentally, another reader sent me this link to a McQueen “inspired” lace skull knuckle clutch.

Love this.  It would look fantastic with the manicure.  Too much lace?  Never.

What does this mean?  Will I glue lace to my nails?  Buy a tiny purse?  I’m not sure.  But I am immediately going to paint my nails black, and blog on a more regular basis.

Happy Solstice!

  1. thank you so much for linking to my mani. im so happy you like it 🙂 i hope Krampus doesn’t get the best of you and i hope you have a very merry christmas 🙂

  2. No Glue should be needed. Just press the pre-cut pieces of lace into a wet layer of polish and seal with a clear top coat or two.

    I use to do this back before hard core crafting kept on breaking my nails.

    The lace does strengthen the nails if you have to time to watch them dry.

    It is always worth it for a major event.

    Now go have some gothy fun.

    Hugs, Euphoria

  3. If you use nail glue, the whole look can be safely soaked off with acetone–just place a saturated cotton pad on the finger and wrap with tin foil. It’s a bit of a nuisance if you have things to do, but it’s a fast, easy way to soak of gels, glue, or glitter.

    I’ve gotten a little TOO into nails since we covered those services in school. So many looks to try, shapes to use, enhancements to learn. Way more fun than I thought I’d end up having with it.

  4. The nails are awesome and thank you Lady Euphoria Deathwatch for the tip on applying them.
