Sometimes, I have these brilliant ideas in my head and they just do not translate well to reality. It's extra annoying as I have to stare at them all day and it makes me all whiny. However, I feel it is my duty to show you everything - even if I kinda hate it - so you know not to do it yourself. Learning yay!
So this particular "brilliant" idea started off with a suggestion from a reader, comparing Deborah Lippmann Private Dancer with Gosh Purple Heart. I happened to have that one lying around so gave it a shot. Purple Heart looks amazing in the bottle - that wonderful purple-green duochrome I find so hard to resist. The first coat was good, if not a little thin, appropriately being all colour-switchy. By the time I got to three coats, the colours just kinda stopped being awesome. I couldn't see the colour shift even looking at it, let alone on camera. My next misstep was to add an accent nail in the new silver leaf I found at the art store. Not too bad but not as smooth as I like. Until I was leaving for work and the whole thing just popped off. Finally, I thought a coat of Dollish Polish Put a Ring on It might just save everything but it didn't go and I had to stare at it all day and that made me sad. Don't do this, everyone!
The Verdict: Love the Dollish Polish, not keen on Purple Heart, hate all these together. Sad face.

Too hard on yourself! I like that combo.ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing the supposed fails, too! When nail bloggers don't, it makes me feel all intimidated.ReplyDelete
