The look I'm sharing with you today is a bit of a manicure fail. I was going for a specific look and what I got was nothing close. That said it's not a horrible manicure at all, just not what I was going for.
You know those great looking manicures with the interlocking dots? That's what I wanted to do but instead of dots, I attempted hearts. First, I tried to paint them on but my hearts looked like sideways ninja turtle heads.
Picture the rounded cheeks and bubble head. Cute but not for this manicure. Maybe I'll take this new found design idea and do a ninja turtle manicure in the future. My 8 yr old would probably love it. Are you ready to see what I ended up with? please excuse the quick cell phone picture. I took this mid-manicure before any clean up.
I used Orly Artificial Sweetener for my main base color and Dare to Bare for my accent nail. These two color went so well together I almost wish I hadn't added the hearts.
The heart glitters are from KBShimmer that I just received in a polish swap from the completely awesome Jessica of Be Happy and Buy Polish. I originally thought the colors of the glitters would blend a little better with the polish to give more of that interlocking look I was going for. Love the glitters but they stand out a little too much in this case.
I kind of like the way this looks but I'm disappointed that my original idea didn't work out. I'm not giving up yet though and will probably try again. I just have to figure out how I want to go about it. What are your thoughts about how this turned out? Thanks for stopping by and Happy Polishing!
