Light and Funky

Hi all, This weekend mani was inspired by Lolita, I tried different styles this time. This is not my usual style! =) but I want to try something new and try different art for nails, recently when I was browsing blogs, I saw a certain lace style, I can't remember from whose blog I saw it from,please let me know if you have any knowledge of the origin. When I saw it, I was instantly moved, it looks great on nails, I don't know if this one suits your taste...
I used bobbie vodka on ice for the base coat, black lace and added some rhinestones...

direct sun light

For the second mani, I named it "Flaming Skull" , I like this punky nail art, I used konad solid white for the base coat, M42 fauxnad skull i.p and amisy F05 fire i.p .. when you look at it, it seems like the post of thriszha, she made a mani entitled "Kiss Me" . I like the combination of colors she used...
Which of the two is your fav? light or punky??
I'm looking for bow, pearl, rose, and dried flower for nail art... Let me know if you have an idea where I can acquire them... thank you!

Hope you like them! Have a great weekend everyone! God Bless
Thanks tassas for the Sweet Blog Award!
