2 manis,1 post. Both Nail Fail!

Hey all, sorry I've not been keeping up with my challenges lately. I have been pretty busy with reviews and I have been a bit put off with the challenges since I broke my nail. Nail art is virtually impossible to do on my right hand since I am right handed. My left hand is pretty useless unless it's holding a bottle of polish. LOL 
I did completely bypass Day 19 (Galaxies) in the challenge. I will do one before the challenge is over, cross my heart! Today I have Days 20 and 21, Water Marble and Inspired by a Color.
I want to remind you that at the very beginning of this challenge I said that I would show you even the most ugly, failed attempts. And these frankly belong in that category. 

Water Marble:
I wan to start off by telling you this is NOT the original water marble I had done for this day. I had the most Epic water marble ever done by me! It was delicate and squishy pink and was almost perfectly uniformed on each finger! I had it all done but I had to leave the house before I got my pix taken. Needless to say by the time I got home I had screwed it up so bad I just took it off. I redid it in the original colors and it sucked! So I tried these colors instead. It still sucked but at this point I said f**k it and gave up! Here is nail fail #1

As you can see It was less than perfect, then when I added my top coat I jacked it up even more.Oh well.
Colors used were Orly Shockwave and Sally Hansen I Pink I Can

Next I have Inspired by a color. I wasn't particularly moved by any color so I asked my hubby to pick.When he picked this I knew I wanted to use the beads I got from the $1 store since they were close in color. Here are the pix from nail fail #2

This was my first attempt at "beaded" nails (I don't want to get in trouble with Ciate using the C word) and it didn't turn out as well as I'd hoped. I dipped my nail in the beads maybe next time I will sprinkle them on...any suggestions? 
Anyway, this is my nail fail for day 21. This color is Sally Hansen Parrot.

Well I  will be back soon with my hopefully not a fail inspired by a song challenge day 22!

As always check out what the other lovelies have been up to with their challenges!


  1. Fail!? Your marble is better than anything I could do!

  2. Love your marble it turned out great! However on your bead mani mine turned out the same way last week it was horrific and I sprinkled mine on so any tips on how to make it look so smooth and nice would be greatly apprciated!

  3. I have yet to achieve a successful water marble! Yours is way better than any of my failed attempts. I kinda like your beaded look, though and I don't normally like caviar manicures. I recently promised my sister I would give her a caviar mani the next time she comes to visit. I am excited to experiment with it without having to wear it myself :) I hope she lets me put it on my blog!

  4. Fails? no way! these two are great! :) dont be so hard on yourself!

  5. Fails? no no NO... both look lovely hun!

  6. Thanks ladies, I still think they both look like butt though! LOL Yes I know, I'm being overly critical. But I'm a bit of a perfectionist, so the slightest bit of imperfection turns me into a spaz, I hate to show off something that I'm not happy with. LOL And I really have no idea how to make that damn beaded mani look good, I just need to fiddle with it a few times. But if I figure it out I will definitely post it!

  7. I agree with Lacey! Your fail is about on par with my uber successful attempts. LOL. Everything is relative, right?


  8. Yeah not a fail. Girl, for doing these on your opposite hand these are amazing. You're being too hard on yourself!

  9. The marble nails look good!

  10. I love the color combo you used for your water marble! I always end up redoing at least two nails when I try a water marble so I think yours looks great!

    For the bead mani when I do one I dip my nail into the beads, then I brush off the nail with an old fluffy eyeshadow brush to get rid of any extra. Next, I push the beads gently down onto my nail so the lacquer grabs onto them. To secure them further, I have found Gelous works best. Other top coats I have tried just melts the beads together. I really hope my tips help you!

  11. Jus found ur blog today, neither one is much of a fail at all !!! The second one is def gorgeous :)
