April Fools Again!

April Fools is here, so it's time for another "manicures that made a fool out of me". Now, there isn't too many this year, not because I didn't screw up any, but because I mostly stopped taking pictures of manis that didn't turn out right. Here is one that happened just recently. I had just got some new Messy Mansion plates and pulled out my jellys. I had to make a blue for the water because I don't own a blue jelly. I then made the poor decision to color in the seahorse with pink. It just isn't an attractive color combination. When stamping I didn't get all the unwanted parts of the image off the stamper so there is a blotch of white that I tried covering up with the jelly on my ring finger. I'm also outside the lines on the index. I'm just not happy with the over all design.

Next up is a glitter placement that looked a lot cooler in my head than it did on my nail. I just got carried away. It's not horrid, just not what I had in mind. I wanted a falling gold coin look, and all I got was a gold disco ball. One of my many green manis for St. Patrick's Day this year. I also had a massive problem with air bubbles again. I think I may have just used too much topcoat when I was trying to smooth out the glitter.

And of course if we are mentioning fails, my foil flop has to come up as well. I've since been told that only certain topcoats will work over foils with out destroying them. Topcoats I don't own...yet.

That's it for now. I'll have to remember to take pics of the manis that don't turn out well just for this post each year.


  1. Honestly? i think the seahorses are cute!!!!

  2. Thanks! I do like the sea horse stamp, I just don't think I should have rushed it and used colors that didn't complement each other. I will do this again sometime and it will be so much better :)
