Start off with clean nails
Then paint them with whatever color you want! I used Essie's "cute as a button"
Then cut out a little piece of lace in a rough shape of your nail
Then place it on top and cut with the cuticle trimmer to get it to your desired size
Then apply a layer of clear nail polish
And you're done! (: you can apply lace on every nail or just one like what I did
