Friday's Failed NOTD

Currently reading: The Distance Between Us by Maggie O'Farrell

Good morning girls! TGIF :-) Have you had a good week? What are your plans for the weekend?

In my office we have a dress-down policy for Fridays so with that in mind, I thought I'd do a bright manicure.

For the base I used a neon pink by Magic Visage Glamour and stamped using Konad Special White with BM208

Then I used BM14 to stamp a black rose on each nail, alternating the position of the rose on each finger

The reason I think this is a nail fail is because the whole design just looks messy to me and the rose image isn't clear. Plus the overall design doesn't make sense. I should have chosen a spider image and made it look like a spider creating its web.

My nails are also short again, which I dislike.

What do you think of this manicure girls? I'd love to know.

Bye for now,


  1. I love the color combo of the pink and white! I actually like the rose myself!

  2. Amazing colours, I love your little creation ;)
    Have a spectacular day,


  3. I am still laughing :D "the overall design doesn't make sense" :))) Well yeah, with a spider it would have looked like a spiderweb. The idea with the roses though is good! And it just looks a little bit messy, because the stamped images aren´t that clear. But hey, nail fails happen to all of us ;)
    My plan for the weekend is: learning! :P And I will prepare some blog posts. And what are your plans? :)

  4. I really like the mani, although it's true that the rose isn't very clear. I think the pink and white would look good on its own and would definitely be cool with a spider! xx

  5. I think it would have looked nicer if the roses were all in the same position-that's what doesn't make sense to me. The stamping just takes more practice-

  6. There is a lot going on here, but it doesn't look bad. A spider would definitely look cool on the pink and white background.

  7. I don't think it is a complete makes me think about halloween!

  8. I think it is cute! NOT a fail! I didn't look at it and think it was messy! i thought it looked great!

  9. @Polish and Charms, thank you!

    @The Girlie Blog, thanks :-)

    @ML, aw thanks :-)

    @Theodora, haha, glad I made you laugh! My plans for the weekend: shopping, a classical music concert and cake and a chat with a friend. Not bad :-)

    @TheOtherSideOfCool, thanks :-) The rose image isn't very good on the image plate I have to say, it's not compact enough.

    @Fingers, good point

    @Liz, thanks

    @Sandra, thank you

    @Alice, ha :-)

    @imfeelingnail-venturous, thanks!

  10. Oooh. I really like this look. I was just playing with this plate the other day, and didn't know what I wanted to do with it... I think you just gave me some ideas :-) Thanks!

  11. WHY IS THIS A FAIL???!!!! Me = Confused


    Lol no seriously I'm loving this, the colours and the design! I actually love the added rose too, it looks good!

  12. Oh no this isn't a fail, it looks very nice!


Reading your comments makes my day, leave me one to have your say :-)
