Valentines Fail.

So I think I mentioned that last week was going to be crazy, I worked every day of the week, taught a class, flew to Denver for a day long conference (we had to be at the airport at 4am.) Flew back that night then got to get up at 4 the next morning for military duty.  There wasn't a lot of time for nails, but I managed to fit a few things in.  I'm kind of bummed that the ubber cute nails that I did just for Denver didn't work.  I topped them with a UV cure gel to make them last longer, but it ended up shattering and  looking a hot mess.  The look didn't even last the day...So moving on.

I wanted this look to be my Valentines look, but once I got it finished I didn't care for it as much.  I don't think I had the proper contrast.

 I was inspired by Robin Moses and how she uses foils to do the tips, then takes a contrasting glitter and fills in the blanks.  I think it was the holo hearts that threw it off.  They ended up making the whole look rather thrown together randomly (and kind of junky).  I love the concept though and will continue to try to get it to work for me.

    1. :) I guess I need to be more open minded about it. It just wasn't what I was going for but it did turn out pretty.

  3. See? This is why it's good to post looks you're not happy with, because some people will find inspiration from them, and some will love them!

    1. True. I just have a hard time when what is in my mind doesn't translate onto my nails.
