Hello gentle readers.
Today I have a nail fail to share with you. I don't know what I was thinking when I did this mani. Oh, wait. Yes I do. I was thinking that I needed to paint my nails in such a way that I am guaranteed to want to toss my cookies every time I look at my nails.
Nice. Really nice.
I started out with China Glaze Pink Plumaria from their Summer Neon Collection. Hmmm... Not bad. Very pretty, actually. But, -and here is where the insanity set in- I decided that bright, shimmery pink neon on it's own wasn't quite bright and eye catching enough. What to do? Stamp? Nope. Not in the mood. Dots? Seriously? You just did dots, you boring old biotch. Roses? Yeah. Right. Stripes? Are you kidding me?
Glitter! Glitter will make me happy. Glitter is easy. Glitter is sparkly. Glitter is happiness.
And not just any glitter. Oh, no. I need to use Orly Brave. Yes, indeedy. Top a shimmery neon pink with purple/pink shifting holographic bar glitter.
Check it out.
This mess actually photographed a little better than it looked in person. Seriously, this mani looked like chunks of the Barbie Dream Bed coated in holo dipped cat hair.
Please don't misunderstand me. Both of these are lovely polishes (I have reviews on both coming up soon), great looking on their own or paired with the right mate but to my eye, they aren't pretty together.
I think I'm going to hurl.
As I said, earlier, full reviews of these polishes (separate, of course!) are upcoming.
Do you own either of these polishes? Both? Did you do a vomit inducing manicure with them? Do tell.
Thank you so much for popping in. Have a great weekend and may your polish never bubble.
