FAIL = First Attempt In Learning

Sparitual Oasis

I see people do beautiful dry marble designs all the time, and they make it look like a piece of cake.  Either they are really just that good, or this is something that takes a little more practice.

I used Wet’n’Wild Whipped Topping as a base for all of my nails.  Next, I put on a blob of Sparitual Oasis, and I used a pointed dotting tool to swirl the polish.  This is where I was experimenting with amounts of blue and white, and how hard to push, where to swirl, how to swirl, I mean really…the combinations of ways to do it are endless and overwhelming!  And then, if the polish begins to stiffen up at all, forget it!  You will just leave bald spots.  And oh the bald spots!  Some people make those look so easy to cover up.  When I tried to, it truly looked like a blob of paint tossed on to a weird looking nail.  😛  Anyway, when that was all done, I topped it off with a coat of Wet’n’Wild Up in the Air, because sometimes glitter makes designs better.  Yeah, not today.  lol

There are chips and dents and bald spots.  Whatevs.

Thanks for reading about my fail.  If you have any suggestions, please pass them on!

One Nail Fail After Another

So, last week I water marbled with OPI Color Paints.  It wouldn’t have been a fail if I had the full size.  I have the sample set and couldn’t get enough color to glob off of the brush to get a good swirl.  (I didn’t even take pics.)

Last night I did my nails in what was and should have been a pretty cute, simple style.  And then I got tired and went to bed.  I woke up to smears, dents, and an extreme need to remove the polish.  Ugh.  

After two fails in a row, I’m hoping for a win next!

What are your worst fails?

Thanks for reading!
