Creative musings in bright colors

Preppy Argyle (fail)

This is the second time I have tried argyle, and it just isn’t my thing! I think the problem here were the colors…I was at the eye doctors and had my eyes dilated. I then tried to pick colors and use them while I couldn’t see. This is the result.


My inspiration came from a truly beautiful bit of work by Newly Polished, but she has a good eye for color and was able to draw thin lines! Oops. No matter how hard I try (and this is not the first time) I should not pair magenta with pale blue. It. Does. Not. Work.



  • Pink: OPI – Vision of Love (will be reviewed later…in a better manicure)
  • Silver: OPI – It’s Frosty Outside
  • Blue: Zoya – Rocky


Anyway, I hope you enjoyed these…somewhat! I promise my second scheduled post isn’t a total fail. Just a somewhat fail. There is a reason I am posting these while I am away and don’t have to remind myself that I make color mistakes 😀

  1. This is still a great mani! I did have a little chuckle at you picking your colours with your eyes dilated though, haha…

  2. I think it’s the shiny finish of Vision of Love that clashes with creamy Rocky. But you did a fantastic paint job!

  3. I think it turned out great! What fail? 😉

  4. Totally NOT a fail! I love the colors you paired, and the design is flawless! No clue what your talking!? hehe 😀

  5. I actually kind of like the colour combo but then I love the clashing colours trend. It looks fab, you did a great job with the glittery lines!

  6. […] my fail with argyle nails, I wanted to redeem the lovely deep pink polish of Visions of Love. This manicure came out MUCH […]
