Just as the title suggests this was supposed to be red lace nail art look, but I'm not completely sure if it looks anything like lace... I didn't have a clear vision of a pattern and I didn't google any lace patterns to use as inspiration. Looking back I really should have done that, maybe then the finished look would look more like lace. Oh well, thankfully I'm not Russian, so I don't need to be perfect.
I used two beautiful Essie cremes for this look. The nude is of course Sand Tropez and the red is Jump In My Jumpsuit. Sand Tropez is clearly my favorite nude polish and it's alarmingly running out. I'm going to need to buy another bottle asap! Jump In My Jumpsuit was THE perfect red to be paired with Sand Tropez, it's a tad darker than a basic red but still not too dark. I'm pretty sure I have criticized Essie for making too many basic red cremes, but while choosing the red for this mani, I was quite happy to own so many Essie reds. I could easily find the exact color that I wanted, not too light, not too dark, just perfect.
I didn't really think about making something that would suit the upcoming Valentine's Day, but now posting this mani, I can see that this look would suit the theme quite easily. So yay, I managed to do a theme mani well ahead of the actual date for once! Let's not focus on the fact that it wasn't planned...
