Fail Of The Day!

Hello my lovelies!
I originally wasn't going to post this. I was so so unhappy with it.
But here goes...

I ADORE this purple. It's Cheri 110 "Sapphire" (?)
I picked it up at this amazing little nail shop near my house.

It wouldn't work.
In truth I was having a totally shit day, stressed and hungry and had been awake for 26 hours.
My hands just wouldn't stop shaking.

So as you can see in the last pic - it went all patchy and see through near my cuticles. I thought I might fix it with some konad to distract the attention - how wrong was I! I forgot to do a top coat before the konad and it went crazy streaky.

Also because I was being so neurotic - I didn't wait for each coat to dry before putting the next one on. So it ended up being this thick goopy mess and when I woke up in the morning it was a wreck! The polish had sludged out from under the rhinestones and the tips (not photographed) were shovelled up halfway down my nail! AAARRRGGGHHH! I took it all off immediately.

All of this was 100% my fault - the polish is normally lovely to work with and such a divine purple!

The next one will be so much better - I promise!

Also - do you want to see my fails? Or should I keep them to myself from now on?

Also - Painted Lady Fingers is having a great giveaway!
