ABC Challenge: F is for Fingerprints and Folly
Hiya, everyone! Today brings us another ABC Challenge and our letter is "F". I know the title up there says that F is for Fingerprints and Folly, but it also kinda stands for "Fail" here lol This is not my favorite manicure, but I figure it's good to see the losers as well as the winners, yeah? Anyway, here's what I have:
It just looks a mess, don't it? Oh well. I started here with 2 coats of Sinful Colors Folly, a watermelon pink creme. I decided that fingerprints would be a fun manicure to do for "F", but I didn't want to spend 42 hours painting them on and I don't have a stamping plate with that pattern, so I searched around online a bit and found this. Seemed pretty straight forward and easy; dip your finger in acrylic paint, dab off the excess and then press your fingertip into your nail. I don't know if my paint was old or if I didn't press hard enough, but either way, I'm not particularly impressed with the result. That's what I get for trying to cut corners!
I do, however, love the color of Folly. It's really one of my all time favorite pinks. It seems somehow less "girly" than a true pink and it's just gorgeous for summer.
I can't wait to see what the other ladies have come up with for their "F" manicures! You can find them all via the links below. Thanks so much for reading!
