I've been feeling a bit off lately so naturally my nail painting patterns have followed suit. This has resulted in me painting my nails all sorts of summery pastels and impulse buying all kinds of super girly rhinestones and nail art thingies on ebay. One of the things I got is a nail art stamping kit. Yeah, I've had konad before and gave up after 3 tries but I bought it AGAIN to give it another go. Before we get into the horrific FAILS I have captured on film let me get all these cutesy summer pictures out of the way.
It all started out innocently enough as seen above. I actually really love Jasmine. But sooner or later things always seem to take a turn for the worse when it comes to pastels and me.
This is Misa Push up bra with craptastic chevron tips in Misa's shake it to the samba.
Here we have Misa Jester ate the king cake with Misa Blame it on fat tuesday. Borderline fail.
Okay. Now let's see what happens when Manatee Mama feels a little under the weather and is high on dayquil for a week.
Sweet lord. This is my first attempt at stamping. Feast your eyes on the fail people.
If you can see past the neon yellow ring fingernail check out the horrid color combo and terrible stamping application...This was attempt number 2.
HOLY CRAP. This is what happens when you get fed up with failing at stamping and try some free hand nail art instead. Notice the smeared ring finger and tacky 3-D flower. Yes, I bought those flowers on PURPOSE in 4 different colors. I guess four different pastels painted with mix matched chevrons just wasn't QUITE summery enough for me, OH NO. I need a 3-D flower with a little jewel in the center to REALLY say summer with my nails. Sad.
I hope you all learn something from this. Cheers to summertime nails applied using a healthy amount of RESTRAINT.
