A Pinterest Manicure

3:03:00 PM

Hello lovelies!  How are you today???  After my hardcore Under the Sea Nail Art, I had to take a little break and take it easy.  I know, I know, how boring.  I just didn't want to spend another hour and  a half on a manicure.

I needed something simple, but not too simple, since I'm sure some of you recall, I stink at simple manicures. Okay, maybe I do not stink at them, but I just feel like I do.  Something always goes wrong.  For example, they're bumpy and diseased or they turn into disasticure.

In order to avoid a disasticure, I started searching pinterest for a simple idea.  I came across this pin which I thought was simple enough.  I got a new gold polish I was dying to try, and I've been addicted to my neons, so I thought why not.  Grabbed my bottle of Hang Ten Toes, Snow Me White, Black on Black, and Golden-I, and got to painting.

Of course, the middle finger was a disasticure, so I opted for polka dots instead....





Colors Used:
  • Sally Hansen - Golden I
  • Sinful Colors - Snow Me White
  • Sinful Colors - Black on Black
  • China Glaze - Hang Ten Toes
  • New York Color - White Lights Glitter
I am really happy I added the glitter to the pink nails.  I think that really made them pop.  The gold polish is just gorgeous.  It is literally the gold  version of Celeb City which is my favorite silver polish.  If you have Celeb City, then you need to go out and find Golden-I to complete your metallic silver/gold fix.

I am really, really happy with how my dotting turned out.  I have stated it in the past that my dotting tool skills are not 100%.  Sometimes they turn out crooked or not a perfect circle, but this time, they ended up being almost perfect!  I think it was because my black polish is getting a tad thick, so it's easier to work with on the dotting tool.

Despite the fact I was happy with the individual nails, I just wasn't happy with them all together.  I liked it, but it just wasn't something I was jumping for joy over.  I will try it again with some tape and the zig zagged pattern.

Do you like it?  Have you ever had a manicure which you loved the individual nails but when they're together you're just meh?
