Fourth Fail

So I got this great idea that I wanted to do Independence Day nails. The 4th is my absolute favorite holiday, because I love being a pyro, and fireworks are my absolute favorite. 

Unfortunately, I got about 1/2 way done with this look and decided I hated it. So I took these pictures to show you all and then took it off. I did come up with a cool look, that I will be sure to show you tomorrow. I didn't even bother to do clean up before taking the pictures. 




I started with a base of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls on all fingers. Then on my pointer and pinky I used a striper and added China Glaze Adventure Red-y. I then layered on China Glaze Ruby Pumps for some added sparkle on the red stripes. For the blue I used Essie Butler Please. On my thumb and middle finger I tried to create fireworks with Adventure Red-y and Butler Please. On my ring finger I layered on a coat of Pure Ice Freedom, a glitter topper filled with mini red glitters, small blue Hexes and silver stars. 

This look wasn't terrible, but it was pretty generic. I just didn't like it, plain and simple. What do you think?

Enjoy & until tomorrow, Amy Lee

    1. Thanks! I think if I had to pick it would be the best one. It just went off the tracks for me and I'm happy with what I came up the second time around.

  4. These were cute but I get what you mean, sometimes a design just doesn't quite click. It's better to take it off and redo your nails than stare at something you're not happy with :)
