Lace nail art inspired with Wingz

Something a bit different for you today! I was sent a pair of Wingz for review by Sarah, and I chose a lovely scalloped lace three-quarter length sleeve design.  I created some nails to match of course – lace nail art inspired with Wingz!

To match the hot weather we’ve been having lately, I think this Coral Ombré design is perfect. It’s got a sunbleached look to it, that with the neon makes a perfect summer holiday manicure.
