DIY Lace Nails

So I'm a little reluctant to post this awesome DIY. Why you ask, would I be so reluctant to share something great? Well because sometimes on the inside I'm an eight year old girl. This DIY is like a pair of sparkly golden jellies (if you were a kid in the nineties you know what these are--if not they are these ridiculous rubber shoes that everyone had to have. they came in bright colors and often involved glitter flecks).

Anyway I wouldn't want to tell my bff about where I got my new jellies, because I know she would have to go get said jellies too! And when you're eight that's just not an option.
Lucky for you ladies I'm not actually eight. I'm 23. So I'm sucking up all my "I'm an only child" greediness and sharing with you today.

Plus it's really only fair that I repost this since it was shown to me by an awesome reader!
This is a DIY tutorial for creating the Lace Nail look which I have been O.B.S.E.S.S.E.D. with.
I will have to update you if I actually try this out for myself :)

Supplies
1.  Topcoat
2. Scissors
3.Toothpick
4. Lace
Apply one layer of topcoat directly to nails.
Cut lace to nail correct size and place on nail & let the topcoat dry
After lace is firmly adhered to nails & topcoat is dry, paint another layer of topcoat on top of lace

They look great in the pictures, but I'm wondering if they'll be too much in real life?
