Total Nail Fail w. Foils

Heeeeyyy!  I hate to even show you all my disappointing mani today but it's all I have.  The idea in my head was much better than the actual execution.
I started with a super fun and perfect pastel vertical gradient over all my nails.  Sadly I didn't take a photo of it because I had smudged some beyond repair.  It wasn't supposed to matter though because I was going to put the foils over it.  I brushed on the foil glue with a fan brush which was supposed to leave some space open to show the colors behind the silver foil.  Weeelllll, that didn't happen.  Apparently I brushed on too much glue so when I applied the foils, there were hardly any breaks for the rainbow to show through.  Trust that I will be re-creating this mani in the near, probably this week because I know that the outcome will be some much better.  Trial and error, People!  lol

Is this really the worst mani?  Up my spirits and tell me it's not (even if that's a in the comments below.  (:


  1. it looks a bit like you applied a crackle polish, but that's not the worst mani ever. but i understand your disappointment, even though we learn more from our mistakes than our successful manis! ;-)

  2. I cant wait to see the redo of this! I find foils so difficult to work with, but at least it's super sparkly!
