Untried Polish Challenge: Neutral

Remember way back when I showed you this polish fail and y'all made it my most viewed post ever with almost 800 views (that's alot for me, don't laugh). Well saddle up, because we are going to try for a new high because I have an even bigger polish fail for you today. And this time, I even finished it and documented it with pictures for you.

So day four of the Untried Polish Challenge brings us to Neutral. I wanted to try a new (to me) technique for today as well so I choose Needle Drag or as some call it Dry Marbling.

I choose 3 untrieds for today, three neutrals that I bought and then didn't use. The colors are Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Pumice and Without a Stitch. I also used Essie Mochachino. Things went horribly wrong.


It looks like a baby puked on my nails. Ick! I'm not sure if it was the color combonation that made it horrible or the design I picked but my-lan-ta it's horrible.


Just look at how gross it is. Suffice it to say, this manicure lasted no longer than 30 seconds after the last picture was taken. No way in H-E-double hockey sticks it was making it out the door. I did do a little skittle swatching for you, so you could see the three colors on their own. 


Individually I really like the colors. Mochachino (pointer) is a medium grey brown polish with a lovely shimmer in it. Without a Stitch (middle) is a beautifully nude polish that leans a little yellow on me. Pumice (ring) is a greenish grey that is very reminiscent of a pumice stone, hence the name. It's funny how three pretty colors when combined are horrible. 

So, what do you think of my huge fail? Is there a way I could have saved it?

Enjoy & until next time, Amy Lee

  1. Maybe I'm just crazy, but I actually love your first attempt. It looks like granite to me!

    1. Thanks! I don't know why it looks so horrible to me.

  2. I feel like if the base color had been more grey it would have looked like actual marble. I've never heard of this technique before.

    1. Maybe I should try it with a grey color next time. I want to try it with more splashy colors next time. I think the design looks cool, just not the colors.

  3. These colors work fantastically well together! What a great idea!
