Nail fail: candy hearts nail art

Yeah, I know what you're thinking: she has a lot of those! Nail fails, I mean. And you're right, I do. But it's so much fun sharing these with you and hoping we'll all learn something from it. I also love seeing other people's nail fails by the way. So don't be embarrassed! We all make mistakes :-p

After two weeks of not painting my nails (try that one for a challenge, bet you can't), it was time for some awesome nail art. It just didn't turn out the way I planned, thanks to my sleepy head and my bed sheets.

My big example was this cute nail art by Leslie on Polish Art Addiction:

The letters and the hearts were done using a stamping plate. It's so sweet, isn't it? Ambitious me was thinking she could draw it all by hand. Hmm let's see how that turned out...

The hearts were pretty okay, they were just a bit too small so the text would have to be even smaller. I knew without trying that it wouldn't work. Too bad!

What was the bummer in this nail fail was the fact that I went to bed before the polish was absolutely 100% dry. I thought it was... The sheets pressed into the polish and it made the manicure look awful! I even had some hearts smudged but I haven't been able to find any spots on my sheets, thank heaven.

Even the pink background polish was pressed, even though that had been dry for over 2 hours. I tried to make some words in the hearts using a white marker but that failed, too. Oh well, it's just something to laugh about! This just goes to show how talented Leslie is. You should really go check out her blog to see the other amazing nail art designs she comes up with!
