Nail Fail: Yellow Flowers?

Sunday, April 27, 2014

Hi!

First, sorry for the lack of posts last week! I've been so busy dealing with what I'm doing this summer -- interviews for being a volunteer camp counselor, and I'm applying to the very prestigious Stanford Youth Orchestra so I ended up practicing about double the amount of flute I'd been planning on practicing. At least the weather's been nice!

I did have time to do one manicure last week, but I'm feeling kind of "ehh" about it...

Polishes Used:
Deborah Lippmann Walking on Sunshine | Wet n Wild Black Creme | Love & Beauty unnamed red

Something about it just didn't "work". I think it might be the colors. Walking on Sunshine (the yellow polish) is a pretty color by itself, but I think this design might have looked better with a mint green or pastel blue instead! 

Now I can take photos outside! Yay!

Oh well. As Sammy of the Nailasaurus says, "done is better than perfect"!

What do you guys think, nail fail or just a little odd?

Thanks for reading!

    1. Thank you!! I'm pretty sure I won't get in, but I might as well try :D Besides being an amazing color, the yellow polish also has a great formula!

  2. Yes, good luck with the orchestra! I know what you mean about not being pleased with a mani... I didn't post for two weeks because I wasn't pleased with the nail art I'd done, but I too am trying to follow Sammy's mantra :) That said, I think this mani is cute and I happened to choose yellow today too! Must be this warm weather!

  8. a tad late maybe? But all the best for your Orchestra application! Hope you'd pass with flying colours :)

    Btw, I love the mani! I'm a huge fan of pairing sunny yellows with black. I think they really suit each other, great contrast too! :)
