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

Noooo.....

Well...

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...

*sniffle*

behold:





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...

  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.
