Nothing to Lose

I typically do my nails in the evening, since that is the only time I have.  It works out, because then they can cure overnight and I can go about my business.  My intention this weekend was to start with a lovely pale blue and do some stamping over it.  (We all know for stamping, you need those nails to be dry.)  But ugh!  When I woke up this morning I realized that I went to bed with my nails a bit too wet because they were full of these creases and indents from the blankets.

Tacky Polish

I went from having this nice smooth finish to this.  I didn’t want to stamp over it, so I figured I had nothing to lose.  Since it was already a mess, why not try something more “daring” than I normally would?  Worst case…take it off and start over.

Zoya and Sinful Colors

The blue polish that I used was Zoya Rebel.  It took two coats to be opaque.  It is a light blue polish with a silvery gold shimmer.    Then, I decided to top off the messed up blue coat with Sinful Colors Love Sprinkles.  I did not put on any of the hearts.  I only wanted the white and pink polka dots.

Nail Art Wheel

Next, the part where I went a little wild.  🙂  I have this random nail art wheel that I dug little flowers out of.  I wasn’t particular about colors.  I just thought with things finally starting to sprout for spring, the baby blue and pink dots would be springy with multiple colors of flowers.

3D Nail Art

Easy Nail Art

And that is what I ended up with!  Some 3D nail art that is colorful and fun.  I am not sure how practical it is or how long it will stay on my nails, but for now it’s fun to be blinged out.  And, with so much going visually, those creases are a thing of the past.

How have you fixed blunders?
