Manicure of the Day: Dainty Lace!

I want to start this post by saying this was not my original idea, but I cannot for the life of me find the original post (If you know PLEASE comment below so I can properly credit the original!) I loved the dainty detail and need to get back in nail art practice, so I figured this was perfect!

I used Zoya Rue, Milani White on the Spot and Jessica Sparkling Silver for this design!

First I applied 2 coats of Zoya Rue and let dry. I used a thin nail art brush dipped in Miliani White on the Spot to create the design and. Once everything dried I applied 2-3 coats of Jessia Hologram Sparkling Silver to add a light holographic sparkly finish (its been my go-to for a little extra fun)!

I love how feminine this mani is! I am pretty happy with how it came out though I need to practice a bit more!

How do you feel about this mani? Let me know below or on Pretty in Paint's Facebook!

According to Rainbow Honey "
Summer of 199X featuring 10 new colors inspired by the 1995 SNES hit, Earthbound. 
“Another video game that holds a special place in my heart! I wanted this collection to bring me back into the game, and I think each new lacquer takes me to a special moment or reminds me of a certain boss that resulted in one too many Game Over’s...Part I is made up of 5 new glitterbombs bursting with shimmer and color - they all layer to opacity but can be used over other colors as well. Part II is 3 new shimmer-dusted cremes and 2 new glitter toppers that give each creme a bold or sweet look. I am so excited to add these all to our lineup!” – Dee" (From
This collection is full of some gorgeous glitters and cremes! and I am super excited to show you these three polishes!
