Nail Fail: The Stringy Neon Cheetah

Did I turn you off with the title alone? Was that the point?! Anyhoo, since you guys enjoyed my last sort of gross nail fail (probably because of my many mentions of tacos, because let's be really real, that's why we're all here). I thought this would be a really cute idea - neon and nude cheetah, sounds good, right? And it maybe would have been if my black polish wasn't so goopy because dang, look at all 'dem strings! This is NOT meant to be a cheetah + sugar spun mani >.< Anyhoo, check it out!




I used butterLondon on all nails, then 2 coats of Revlon TradeWinds (a pretty great mannequin hands polish for me), then Ninja Polish's NVL's Humblebee on pointer and pinkie. For the cheetah dots I used white first, and then China Glaze Sun-Kissed, then the goopy black. I did the random freehand triangles with hatch marks and white highlights on my pinkie and pointer freehand. Then all ze nails got freehand french tips. I did like the pointer and pinkie nails so I kept them for a different mani, which you will see sometime soon this week :D

It seems my nail fails are kind of a hit sometimes, and if nothing else it goes to show that I'm still a real, normal person that can do some kind of (really totally horrible) crappy nail art occasionally.

  2. I like that you still post your nail fails though. It shows that anyone can make mistakes and I like seeing that. I've posted some manicures on my blog that I was disappointed with but I still wanted to share with my readers.

    1. Yeah, I agree! There are lots of times that I feel like I could have done better for ME, but it's not like it's *that* bad IRL. Thanks :D

  3. That's brave of you to upload your fails, I wouldn't be able to do it myself because I hate seeing the fails on my blog Lol. I think the leopard print part is still good though
