Creative musings in bright colors

Timey Wimey

This mani is something of a failure. I had high hopes…and they did NOT pan out. This was deceptively complicated…the nail is grey with a purple stripe up the middle. I did a purple-gold-puple stamp and tried to line up the gold over the purple on the nail. This was the result.

The saddest part is that the fun part of the stamp are all the arrows at the side…and you can barely see them! To be fair, stamping over grey is usually a bad idea to start with. I should have known.

There are also some glequins on the base of my accent nail. Because once I knew the mani was more or less ruined, I might as well go all right? *Twacks self on the head* I promise better manicures next week. I have some awesome ones lined up (including what might be a new favorite. It involves neurons). Enjoy!

  1. I used this image in a silver and black mani and it wasnt bad but the arrows just don’t show. I think u did a pretty good job of lining it all up. Its just that there wasn’t enough contrast between the colors. Its still pretty:). As a science girl I’m looking forward to you neurons:)

  2. On my monitor screen the “grey” looks aquamarine and everything seems to “show.”

    I like the fact that you have three stripes which elongates the nails.

  3. I like this, even though it didn’t turn out like you wanted.
