A mind-boggling 314 bottles of nail polish live in my house. Somehow they just keep creeping in!

I obviously jinxed it yesterday by saying all of my manis were going great, but that one of them was sure to be a dud.  Today was a DOUBLE dud.

I started with the best intentions, with a really unique striped mani for the challenge in mind, and then the untried I picked to be a base color turned out to be the #1 grossest nail polish color ever created in history. Ever. Well... maybe I'm exaggerating... but you get the idea.

I put 4 coats on to make it opaque, and then I went to class, hoping I'd come up with an idea to save this mani later in the day.  Not only do I not come up with a great idea but...



One of these things is not like the others...

So, there shall be no stripes today.  I shall continue with the regularly scheduled challenge tomorrow, and I'll post some old pictures of a striped mani I did over the summer that I really liked.

I'm off to contemplate this poor nail... and my horrid short nail beds... and decide whether or not to file them all down to match...



  1. Oh nooooo! How did you manage that?! I actually cry when I break a nail :( ridiculous but true!

  2. I definitely felt on the verge of teary, so I feel you :( and for the first time in my life, I don't know how it happened! I looked down and practically JUMPED because my middle nail was just missing! I have no idea how that could possible break that low without me noticing.... it is a mystery. A sad mystery.


Hi! I love your comments, and will try to reply to all of them!
