Over The top

This manicure is the tale of two dresses and nails gone wrong trying to match both. I had a beautiful red dress, and an equally beautiful blue one. I also had silver jewelry, a desire to use a flakie polish, and a need to create a french design for the OMD2 challenge. I should have known it was too much!

Blue nails, even holographic blue nails, look quite pretty with flakies over top. A silver deep-cut french looks ok. Red dots and a red tip highlight just look ridiculous. Oops.

You win some, you lose some! There is no way to put all of the things I wanted onto my nails and have them come out looking presentable. And I promise, the nail art gets better starting tomorrow!
