My sophomore slump

So nobody can be perfect all the time, though a few of us come close (me). However, I'm choosing to show you today a rare, tender moment in which I might not have lived up to all that I normally am. Now, this is very hard for me to expose, but I actually nail-failed today. Unbelievable, right? Let me tell you how it went...

I heard about water marbling at the beginning of spring break, and I thought to myself, that's really cool! So I tried it and it went surprisingly well, I think.

Sorry for the subpar lighting, this was before I started thinking about things in blog-terms. Click on the picture for magical biggerization. I'm pretty sure I used Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Deep Purple, OPI Alpine Snow, and Milani Gold Lamé (that's la-MAY, not lame, FYI)

Pretty good for a n00b, no? So I got cocky and I was like, man, I don't know why people have problems with this. This is easy. I should probably start building rockets and trying to reverse global warming now, because I obviously have superhuman talent.

Until I tried water marbling again today...

I intentionally picked the one with the worst lighting because I'm so ashamed. Look at that pinky. It looks like a five year old had too much Dippin' Dots at Disney World and then decided to ride the Tower of Terror and subsequently puked all over my finger. Gross. I used Milani Blue Bolt (Bolting Blue? Something like that) Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Green With Envy, Milani Tropical Fiesta, and OPI Alpine Snow for the base.

Well, there you have it, folks. Evidence that I am, shockingly, not perfect all the time. It's hard to swallow, but I assure you it happens to the best of us. Hopefully you'll forgive me for this crime against manicures and continue to read this blog. I can assure you this will never happen again.

Water marbling is for ninnies.

P.S. Look at this cute picture of my cat. Maybe this will make you forget the horror.

You can't tell in this shot, but her back foot is all the way up by her chin. She's a contortionist, my little Pearly-whirly.

    I think it looks cool. In a strange sort of way. It looks like a hybrid tiger-dolphin died on your fingernails.
