Racey with Lacey Nails

I was reading this month's Cosmopolitan where I came across a picture of some really cool lace-covered fingernails. I kind of want to try it, but I'm not sure how difficult it would be. Of course I would have to buy some lace, probably a thin lace, and then I'd have to cut it precisely to fit each individual fingernail. Then I'd have to figure out how to apply it all without making a huge mess. I found an online tutorial that may be helpful. Maybe one day when I'm bored and feeling ambitious I can give it a try. I don't want my nails looking like the picture below though. They look like a glob of hot tar was splashed onto the tips of this girl's fingernails. NOT sexy.

Another in-trend right now with nails is doing a plain color for the fingers and doing something a little more dazzling for the middle finger and/or thumb, like a bold zebra print or sparkly confetti nail polish. Nail polish can really serve as an accessory if you play it up right. All you have to do is pick the right colors and be a little creative.
