Mish Mash Challenge: Triangles (Oh! The Fail!)
Hello and welcome to Wednesday! It's Mish Mash Challenge day, of course, and I have to tell you that my mani this week holds quite a bit of fail. The color didn't really work for me and neither did my technique :( I could have redone it, but I'm short on time this week and sometimes I like to show you guys a mistake or two, just to bring myself back down to earth lol Alright, on to the fail...er...manicure!
So what I was trying to do was recreate my Tiers of Teeny, Tiny Triangles manicure from the ABC Challenge. It's one of my favorite manicures I've ever done, and I though it might be pretty in fall colors. It might be, but not in these fall colors lol I started with the For Sweater or Worse swatch I wore yesterday as a base. Then, I painted some scotch tape with Sation's Dating the Duke and Sinful Colors Out of Bounds. After the polish dried, I cut strips of triangle shapes with pinking shears. I placed the strips on my nails, trimmed the edges, and topped everything with Seche Vite.
As I said before, this color combo just does not work for me! I thought there was no way to make FSOW look bad but this seemed to bring out a muddy brownish tone to it...which made me sad. Then my edges...oh, the horror! For some reason, my trimming scissors stuck to the tape and pulled the polish out of whack at the edges of my nails, so everything ended up bumpy. To add insult to injury, I laid on my SV too thickly and got beaucoup de bubbles! So much sad *sigh*. Oh well, we win some, we lose some!
Please take some time to look over the other Mish Mashers' manis for this week. I am quite sure they came up with much more creative and more expertly executed work than I did lol You can find them via the thumbnails below! Thanks so much for reading!
