Turning a Fail to a Win!

Here's a mani that started out as a fail but was just up my alley when it was finished!

I was hankering for some texture polish on my nails as I haven't wore any lately so went with Dance Legend 44 Sahara Crystal Earth.  However, due to my application error (too thick coats I believe), the only nail that turned out with texture was the ring finger and it was blotchy and uneven at best.  (This is the fail part.) 

Determined to make the mani work, I stamped using an image from MJ JR 41 using FunkyFingers Gesso. (Crooked stamping on index; also a fail!)

MJ JR-41

While the stamping covered the application fail, it was still kinda blah to me, so added dots using Glam Polish Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! for a little interest.

While I started out wanting textured nails, the uneven look of my poor application bothered me too much so I ended up putting on a coat of Girly Bits What A Rush QD TC on it.

Thanks for looking!


  1. How strange that the texture came out like that! Glad you were able to turn it into a win :)
