ProcrastiNails: Black with Gold Floating Squares Nail Fail

* Press Sample

Oh man, you guys. This is a design that seemed at first like a good idea but then failed when it came to the execution. I tried to get away from pastels and rainbows and this is what I got. :/ Ah well. Every failure is a chance to learn, and I’ve already decided how I’m going to give this look a second take! Check under the cut to hear more about it.

I used OPI Queen of the Road and some square stencils from Born Pretty Store on top of my base (OPI 50 Years of Style with Essie Leggy Legend dry brushed on top) to create this sort of floating pyramids look, but it’s really not working for me. Bummer!

I think I’m going to try again with some softer colours and some sheer tinted polishes instead. I think that could be lovely…
