So this will be a little different than most of nail posts because actually it's a big 'ole failure. haha...my sister would say this post describes me perfectly because I fail at a lot of things :p
I saw this pin the other day while on Pinterest, and I didn't even pin it, thinking it was so simple I could surely do it one day! (okay, it wasn't this exact pin but same idea)
I hadn't seen this exact pin, so when I sat down to it I had the brilliant idea of doing red and blue nail polish for 4th of July coming up soon (American Independence day...is that common international knowledge?). Really brilliant unique idea, ya know? :p I'm sure nobody else has thought of that.
The first fail came in through, though, when I realized the only blue I have is teal. I've used it on this blog before...looks like this
|left one is the closest thing to blue I own...yay|
First, white base. Which, by the way, looks a little creepy on its own. (these are my room colors, I thought it would make a fun picture)
Now time for the straws! First of all, you aren't supposed to DIP your straw into the nail polish. That will result in a blob of nail polish. So I started brushing it on the straw and then putting it on my nail. A little, tiny bit better.
|...but not really (sorry about the quality)|
|At one point I just started putting blobs down...might as well purposely make it look more messy|
As I my friend said, "hahaha wow. That's....pretty bad"
|I thought this picture wasn't clear enough, and it surely looks a tad bit nicer if you can see that I did get SOME circles|
|nah....still looks terrible|
