WARNING: These nails have been tagged ‘fail’ as I am really disappointed with them. If they weren’t for the challenge, I would have taken them off and pretended they never happened!
The theme was delicate print and one of my friends on Twitter suggested a mehndi print. I adore mehndi patterns, they’re so intricate and beautiful so thought it would be a fun challenge. IT WAS NOT FUN. I have never been so full of rage whilst doing a manicure! It kept going wrong and the end product makes me sad! Massive nail fail today.
In case you’re insane and want to copy this mani: I did 2 coats of nude polish and a layer of top coat. I then used a paintbrush and Barry M ‘Mushroom’ to do the pattern.
I will no doubt have another go at this as I hate not being able to do something and I think if I do perfectly it that it could look absolutely beautiful.
Tomorrow is tribal print, which I’ve never tried before. I’m hoping that will go better than today!
