Nail Art Fail

Nail Art Fail

Evening all, how are you today? I’ve finally recovered from my pollen induced coma, a result of walking home along the canal, so have decided to write a post!

You may remember me mentioning Emily’s amazing tiger nails in my monthly summary post. They were amazing, my attempt wasn’t!

One coat of NYC Spring Street
After dabbing Barry M shade 134 and Nails Inc Copacabana over the top using the corner of a sponge

Finished result

It didn’t look as bad  blurred….
This nail art fail has really taught me that I need to invest in some nail art pens instead of using my Eyeko Eyeliner! I had to skip the gold step out as I didn’t have a gold nail art pen, and I do feel that the black may have come out better with a nail art pen. The plus side of using eyeliner…I didn’t like the design so instead of locking it in with a top coat I washed the eyeliner off and kept the gradient nails!
I’m still a nail art newbie so am definitely going to try this again as Emily did it so well! Do you have any nail art tips/recommendations?

    Thanks, I think I was being too hard on myself, even the other half said they weren't that bad! Must practice though! x

    they may not be 100% perfect up close but they'd look fab at a distance. How awesome.

    I think they look quite good hon. I usually have to try my nail art a couple of times before i get it just right 🙂
