Nail Art Sunday – Failed Manicures

Today’s Nail Art Sunday is a little bit different from the ones we’ve had before as the theme is Manicure Failors! Usually I’m not taking pictures of manicures that have gone completely wrong. Sometimes I see how wrong they are somewhere in the middle of the execution and I don’t even finish them :D This is one of the manicures that I did photographed and even worn a day, mostly because I loved the Barry M – Prickly Pear (two coats in the picture below) which is the base color of the manicure and because I didn’t have time to redo it as it was late at night when I finished it.

The manicure is done with the nail art pens coming from Mash that I reviewed here. What I didn’t like about this manicure is the pink parts. I should have done them the same size on every nail but they got smaller and smaller for each nail I did :D. The shape of the pink fields could have been more symetrical too… I could have skipped the silver lines too :D OK, a lot could have been better :D Oh well, I’ll try to redo this pattern some time and do it “right” lol.

    Jag ser din grundtanke här och det hade kunnat bli en läcker manikyr. Men jag håller med dig, detta var ingen större hit. Tack för att du delar med dig:)

    På längre håll kan jag nog tänka mig att det här såg fint ut, för själva designen är det inget fel på.

    Prickly Pear is absolutely gorgeous, pretty, delicate! I’ve gotta get that one! It’s easy to see why you wouldn’t want to remove it.

    And I wouldn’t even consider that mani a failure. It looks pretty fun!

    Inte är det gräsligt, men eftersom det är du så vet ju jag att du kan göra sååååå smycket snyggare manikyrer..;-)

    Absolut inte det värsta jag sett, men jag vet ju hur himla fina manikyrer du brukar göra så då kan jag hålla med om att det här kan vara en värsting.

    Du är ju så himla duktig i vanliga fall, men jämfört med många andras nailart så är detta verkligen inte gräsligt. :)

    Hi Ina, LOL, despite maybe a tad too much going on, I totally see, where you intended to go with it. I experience this myself every so often, that I have this clear idea in my mind and cannot understand why it doesn’t translate equally to the nail. The blue is indeed outstandingly beautiful :-)

    Jag vill ha Barry M lacket!

    This is not so awful. I can see why you didn’t think it was great!
