Hot Mess Valentine's Mani



Last night was really just NOT my night for nail art at all. I tried to stamp over polish that I thought was dry but wasn't (I waited 15 min!) and was just being really clumsy in general... kept bumping my nails into polish bottles... In fact I just noticed as I was editing my pictures that there's nail polish all over the bottom of the bottle :( blah!!! 

I think I ended up re-doing the base of this mani twice.... not fun when it's a 3 coater ugh

Then this happens... my favorite clean up brush just falls apart! you may have seen this already if you follow me on Instagram... too much acetone i guess... need to super glue it back together maybe


Anyway... Let's take a closer look at what I did manage to do...


Index: OPI Dim Sum Plum x2 + Pahlish Little Caroline x1

Middle: Color Club Endless x3... Then I tried to do polka dots with OPI Dim Sum Plum but was really unhappy with the way the polka dots turned out. So I tried to use nail polish remover to swipe off the dots only but that didn't really work. I ended up with something that kind of looked like a Saran Wrap mani instead (except a lot rougher). I didn't want to redo my base for the third time and thought maybe it would look cute with some stamping over it so I stamped it with Pueen 4 and Color Club Miss Bliss

Ring: Color Club Endless x3 + Pueen 1 with OPI Dim Sum Plum. Don't know what happened with my stamping here... Not sure why there's that curved line :/

Pinky: Revlon Popular x2. I feel like it looks out of place... it looks too white next to the other pinks

What do you think of this mani? Do you ever have nights when you feel like everything is going wrong with your mani?

  1. I totally know how you feel! Sometimes when I'm doing swatches, I smudge or nick a nail then I have to take it off and redo it. This happened to me yesterday too, lol. The manicure turned out nice though! I really like the heart stamping on the index nail :)

    1. thanks Traci! It was really frustrating... It definitely didn't turn out as I had planned... lots of changes / improvising but I guess it turned out alright in the end :)
