Today I decided to get the two fail manis out of the way so for the rest of the week we can just focus on the pretty!
First up, is the Musical Roses Redo that I promised.
It isn't so much of a fail as a " I was lazy and didn't do it properly"
This time I started with a base of 2 coats of Diamond Cosmetics "Diamond's Diamonds"
Then I stamped the rose on, trying out various colors for the rose. (I'll differentiate under the pic).
I then added 1 coat of top coat to make sure the tape int he next step didn't peel off the rose!
Then I Stamped the rose image on tape, cause I didn't have any labels. And cut it out. Then stuck them on and stamped the music over it with Special polish in Black, and peeled the tape off.
The fail part is that since scotch tape is so fragile, I didn't cut very close like I should have. If I would have cut as close as I could have if I had labels, I think this would have looked awesome. But it didn't, Here, take a look for yourself:
Ok, Rose Colors....
The stem was Zoya "Veruschuka" on all roses
Index: Sally Hansen Insta-Dri "Pronto Purple"
Middle: Zoya "Harlow" (This was next to impossible, it dries too quick)
Ring: Special Polish in "Wine Red"
Pinkie: Special Polish in "Red"
Oh well....Moving on to the next fail!!!
I wanted to revisit the whole 2 colors mixed on a stamp deal.
I started with 2 coats of China Glaze "GR8" a Gold Holo from the OMG collection!
Then on M63, I dropped China Glaze "Harmony", a purple chrome, and Pure Ice "Outrageous", a pink chrome. This looked great....until I added top coat.
The holo completely vanished, and usually does until the top coat dries, but not this time! It never came back!
Then the pink chrome almost disintegrated, for lack of a better word. It was very noticeable, until the top coat, then it just all but disappeared! I figured I'd show you the pictures regardless, since it might spark an idea for someone!
See the more faded parts? That's where the pink used to be!
I shoulda used the Hot Pink Holo instead!
Oh well, hindsight is 20/20!
Well my wonderful readers, that's it for today.
At least we have all the ugliness behind us and can just look forward to the pretty!
I hope you all have a great day!
