I've actually lost count of how many times I've tried this, but this look is one of those and I'm posting it here as an example as to how not every manicure is perfect, even when that's all you seem to see on blogs. For every beautiful look there is usually a fail...or two, or thre...you get the idea.
Now, who out there doesn't like ladybugs? I mean really, they're adorable as far as bugs go, all rolly polly and polka dotted. Cute right? You would think that they would be a fail safe form of nail art.
I have wanted to do some nail art of cute little ladybugs skittering about amidst the daisies for a long while, and I keep trying but so far it hasn't been meant to be. This time around it was the fault of the ladybugs. They looked so innocent but oh no, they were demon bugs in disguise!
|What sad empty spots where my ladybugs used to be. :(|
The nail stickers that I got were thick and hard, about the same consistency as if you took a drop of polish and let it dry on a flat surface then tried to adhere it to your nail. What adhesive they had was not enough to keep them flat and even a dot of top coat and pressing down wouldn't work. So I tried filling in the gaps around the edges with my top coat, and that worked fine as long as I had no intention of using my hands. They moment I did...pop, pop, pop, three little demon bugs met their demise, leaving only two sweet ladybugs behind for you to see.
|Apparently demon bugs are comfortable leaving their heads behind, see it there on my thumb?|
But, I have not been vanquished, I will persevere! At some point I will try again and come back to show you frolicking ladybugs...just not today.
