Sometimes, you have a vision in your mind of how a mani will look. People gasping, cameras flashing, being the talk of the entire world. Sadly, today is not one of those days as everything about what I did the other night is just sad and fail.
My first brilliant idea was to use an Urban Outfitters polish called Blood. I had this picture of it being viscous, deadly looking, dangerous as it really is the most true blood red I've ever seen in a polish. Unfortunately, it also makes my cuticles look like they're bleeding as apparently after all this time I still can't paint my nails neatly. Being more of a jelly polish, I used three coats and got decent coverage. My next bright idea was to apply a glitter stripe down the middle to hopefully distract from the mess I made. I managed to convince myself that the beautiful matte glitter Sand Art from Pretty and Polished tootttallly went with the red. NOPE. I'll be coming back to review this one properly, this does not do it justice.
The Verdict: Urgh, from my application to my colour combination. Even the one last picture I took is blurry! Moving on!
Where to Buy:
- Blood, $8, Urban Outfitters
- Sand Art Mini, $4, Pretty & Polished on Etsy
I like it, it's fun glittery racing stripe! Don't be so hard on yourself, lady!ReplyDelete
I want Sand Art now. Betcha doesn't ship to Canada.... This also doesn't look as bad as you think it does. Relax =DReplyDelete
I'm actually in Canada and got it shipped here! Whereabouts are you?Delete
Haha, I love that you posted this even though you think its a fail :PReplyDelete
You know, my attempt at transparency and stuff :)Delete
it looks fine to me!ReplyDelete
Personally, I like it! I mean, it's a bummer it stained your cuticles, and maybe another polish that matches the Sand Art a little better, but I really like the effect of the bold line made up of all those tiny dots. All Neo-Impressionism and whatnot. ^_^ReplyDelete
