Wonky Flowers

As I mentioned yesterday, I really really should have waited for my base to dry!! I started with a dark purple creme and then added rainbow flakies. I keep forgetting that unlike my blue/green flakies (Maisie by Zoya) my rainbow flakies are in this really thick base that takes 2-3 coats to get a good glitter load! Thus the trouble began.


I added top coat after adding my flakies in hopes that it would speed up the drying process. Then I had the awful experience (I think for only the third time in my nail art career) of stamping and having polish squash OUT THE SIDE of my nails! The top layer was dry but the middle layers were NOT. It was awful.


I was so anguished that I just tried to salvage what I could. That is my only explanation for why my nails are patchy and the stamp didn’t fully transfer. I gave up. I had to wake up at 3am to catch a plane and I finished these at 8pm. It was a mess!

~ Flakies: piCture pOlish – Festival
~ White: Mentality – White Opaque
~ Stamp: EdM – 22


I promise I’ll use the stamps on this plate again soon, they are too cool to let a bad experience with polish ruin them! Grrrrrrr dense flakie base.

    If I could do my nails half as good as these I’d be happy!
