After posting my stained and gross nails yesterday, I decided that I would go all the way and post a failed attempt at a manicure. I love it when people post fails. It makes me feel like I am part of a humble community and that is what I love most about blogging. I love polish, and nail art but sometimes I suck. Sometimes I feel great at it. It's give and take and that's how we get better. So this is really old. Like a few months. I almost posted it back around prom time because....well....let's be honest, they look like prom nails. Not the nails that teens wear today. Most of them get them done in a salon. It looks the the prom nails of the 80's-90's. You know, the kind that is worn by someone with big hair??? Sound like anyone here? I bet it does. For this amazing manicure, I used Finger Paints Silver Sculpture, which I gave to a co-worker's daughter because it emphasized every little imperfection and ridge on my nails. I used some striping tape and China Glaze's Prism over the top and accented with some gaudy purple gemstones. It is very hard to write this up as a serious post......
I am thinking this would go over great at a children's party if I ever decide to do one. People ask me regularly but I am certain there is not enough money to pay me to do it.
And just for some added humility, I am including a picture of my senior prom dress. No sexy, slinky number for me. And, NO....those are not curtains, it is legitimately a dress. I saw it in a magazine and HAD to have it. OMG!!!
