Monday's Manicure ft Freehand Fail

Currently listening to: Payphone by Maroon 5

Good morning dear readers,

Remember a couple of weeks ago I said it was easy to freehand roses?  Well I need to take that comment back as today I have a freehand fail for you :-(

I started with two coats of Eyeko Vintage Polish:
 

 I then used Barry M Matt White and my dotting tool to place white polka dots on each nail.


 Then I used my acrylic paints and attempted to paint three roses on each nail.  I don't know what went wrong but they just weren't as good as last time so I removed this manicure as soon as I'd finished photographing it.


Have you had any recent fails?

Bye for now,
Laura

  2. If you aren't happy with them, you (as you probably know) can remove the design without removing the polish and start over...
    The colors are really nice together :)

    1. I think if I'm not happy with a manicure I prefer to just start a completely new one rather than try to save any part of the old one. But thanks for the tip anyway :-)

  4. Agreeing with previous commentators - I think they look pretty, not a fail at all. :)

    1. Thanks :-) It's funny how we all have different opinions

  5. They aren't a fail at all! Maybe they're competing a little more than you wanted against the dots but not a fail by any means!

    My most recent failure was at trying to do some Hello Kitty accent nails--those babies didn't get anywhere *near* a camera. >_<

    Btw, so in love with that Eyeko shade! ♥

    1. I didn't know what was wrong with this until I read your comment but you're right, the roses are competing with the dots.

      Aw, you've made me curious about your HK nail fail!

  6. I don't think it's a fail. But the challenge I'm doing at the moment has produced a lot of fails :D

    1. Lol, I think challenges are, by their nature, challenging so fails are to be expected. But I don't remember seeing any on your blog!

  7. I think you would've done better to put down a layer of white for the roses, as I think it's the blue/white underneath that makes them look not quite what you had planned for. They're still pretty, but I totally understand removing nail art when it doesn't come out the way you had hoped. I had a nail fail this weekend, actually, and it will probably hit my blog on Wednesday's post. :P
