NOTD: Gran's Vintage Wallpaper
Two coats of Butter London's Billy No Mates, and a gold lace That's It? Rub-on from EZ Nails.
I'd been experimenting with the rub-on when it failed (twice) and I was too lazy to try again. I just rubbed on the rest of it haphazardly to the rest of my nails, but I rather like the effect. Like aged wallpaper, hence the name: a whole lot of the design has been scratched or just aged away, leaving only the base color. It reminds me also of upholstery.
It's a BS of a project, I know, but I really do like it! I promise to be a little more careful next time I try something like this; I swear it won't be this all the time. :) I do want full-on lacey nails at some point, y'know. Without mishaps.
(Also, I think this NOTD is making me like Billy No Mates. Uh oh.)
