Several ladies have done versions of lace nails for various themes for Digit-al Dozen challenges (one of which I ironically have already
copied, ahem, re-created) but because I'm not recreating any stamped mani's this week, my inspiration was from Vic and her Nails; this was her mani.
I had already done lace and roses before in this mani....
.....which ironically was inspired from another Digit-al Dozen member, Sassy Shelly here .....
......so I took some artistic freedoms and went with a slightly different lace and floral pattern. I had received Dance Legend Melange earlier in the week and thought it would be a neutral base for the meeting and thought lace stamping would work. This is two coats of Dance Legend Melange 280, no top coat.
Added coat of GirlyBits What A Rush QD Top Coat before stamping. If you've read my blog (actually read it, and not looked at the pictures; I know it happens!), I've been a long time user of KBShimmer Clearly on Top. It's been my go to quick dry top coat for some time. But I decided to add a bottle of GirlyBits What A Rush QD TC (aka GBWARQDTC) to my last Girly Bits order for a couple reasons: KBShimmer doesn't ship to Canada and it's not always in stock when I need it at Harlow & Co. Even though I try to hoard it, with the 5 bottle maximum order, there are times that my fingers get twitchy when I'm down to my last bottle and wonder if it will be stocked in time before I need it. The other reason, and I realize this is no fault of Harlow & Co., is the recent price increase due to the falling dollar. But with GB QD selling at $6.50 a bottle versus KBShimmer at Harlow, selling for $9, there's quite a bit of savings with the GirlyBits QD.

Added coat of GirlyBits What A Rush QD Top Coat. Decided to add a few studs to accent and finish, which is in first pix; I'd gladly show another pix but my posts are too long as it is!
Here's the other ladies Day 4 mani's!
Thanks for looking!
