It's a good thing I'm not a perfectionist, or I'd never post anything. Today, I have a couple of manis that were aspiring to perfection, but overshot and went up in flames.
Ironically, the first polish is from a brand called, "Perfect". This is the perfectly named, "H3". It looks like an H3, doesn't it?
This is one of those holos that would have performed better with an aqua base coat. Took me three coats to even out the patches, and the formula was finicky. But, the end result is awesome. Very bright, clear linear holo. Almost blinding.
And. then, I wasted all that hard work. Pffft.
I thought, 'ooh, dark green would look great with pink.' Not thinking that dark green would stamp as muddy black. It just looks like my printer ran out of ink.
Look at this gorgeous cornflower blue holo, Liquid Lacquer When the Levee Breaks.
It's so delicate. I love how the rainbow reflects yellow and purple and pink.
And then, the Levee broke and made a dam(n) mess.
One of my recent fave blues (and a great pedi color) is OPI I Saw..U Saw.. We Saw.. Warsaw. Beautiful blue. Does not stamp, at least for me. Looks like a weird Rorschach test.
If it weren't so tragic for these gorgeous holos, it would be funny. Oh, heck, it is funny. Celebrate your screwy manis, we all have them, and if we're lucky, we learn something from them. If you have a screwy mani you'd like to share, post it on my Facebook wall! I'd love to see them.
