NOTD: Lingerie For Your Nails

A few days ago, I got a fresh batch of nail polishes in the mail. Among them were the December 2013 and January 2014 polishes from Enchanted Polish.

Today's nail art features December 2013, a lovely nude holo with hints of pink and gold. While I was swatching the polish , the color reminded me a lot of silk stockings or lingerie, so I just had to throw together some nail art to match.

I looked through my stamps to find something that I could use to make lingerie for my nails. I only have two stamping sets at the moment, but luckily I had one corset-like pattern and several leave-like patterns among them. Combined with the corset pattern, the lace looks like a pair of stockings. <3
