Etude House Ice Cream Nails with Lace Nail Art Tutorial

I have been trying out different nail looks using the Ice Cream Nails from Etude house. A previous floral design using the same series was posted earlier here, and now I am trying out another look. This nail art is simple and fast, and gives the nails a very dainty look! A full tutorial after the jump!

The first step is to prep your nails for the nail art. Apply one layer of base coat. If you like, you can even apply a nude nail polish shade as the base color. I prefer to leave my nails with just base coat for this nail art.

Following the step-by-step guide as above:

1. Use tape if you are not very confident in painting straight lines with nail polish. If you are very confident and familiar with it, you can skip the tape and paint free-hand.

2. Paint a block of pink using the Ice Cream Nails in #PK001 diagonally across the nail, and slightly over the tape.

3. After the pink color has dried, paint stripes using Ice Cream Nails in #BL601. Here, I have already removed the tape and painted the the stripes free-hand, but you can still keep the tape on and paint the stripes. Make sure the pink has fully dried before the stripes are added! Remove the tape once the polishes have dried.

4. Using one of the lace seal from the Sweet Lace Nail Seal in White One Piece,  paste the nail seal across the diagonal previously painted on and cut off the excess using a small nail scissors. Here I am using the nail scissors from Etude House. Very pretty in blue and pink ,and coincidentally matching the color theme of the manicure! Finish off the entire manicure with top coat.

Doesn't the completed manicure look very sweet? I love how the lace and pastel hues complement each other!

Another design you can try out is not to limit the 'border'' between the polishes to a straight diagonal line. In the pic above, I actually did a wavy one and used one of the nail seals from the same set to complete the look.

I will definitely try other fun colors and designs, and look out for more new polishes reviews coming up very soon! Stay tuned!
