     So this happened….Tell me if you experience it too…When I try something for the first time I’m freaking awesome with it. Like “nailed it” “boo ya!!” awesome. It is the epitome of perfecte-mondo. But as soon as I try to replicate it I come crashing down! Why the hell does it look like this? I did what I did before? Then why is it like this?!? Wahhhhhhhhhh!!!

The perfect one!

     Sigh….story of my life! I need to do it many times before I reach even near to what I did when I tried it for the first time. Case in point this nail art. The one I did on the middle finger was my first attempt at the design I had in mind. But try as I might I was not able to replicate it on the others 🙁 And you know what the worst thing is? I actually did the remaining four fingers and since they didn’t come out well cleaned them and did it again.

      Yes this is the result of my second attempt on the other fingers. I tried different techniques so to speak to get what I did right the first time and so far the solution eludes me. But I still decided to share it with you. So what if it is not perfection. It is my attempt at it and I’m sort of proud of it 😛 Atleast one of it is gorgeous 😀 Others will follow in time. This was my attempt with the nail art you can see some of the manicurists do with the help of the toothpick. Btw I used the colors Blackout, Moon Beam and Crystal Clear from the Maybelline Color Show range.

     I will keep trying and once I get what I did right and what I’m doing wrong I will put up a tut for it. So that you guys can get it down from the get go. Only those who have failed can truly appreciate the sweet taste of success….And with that corny but true dialogue I bid you good bye!

PS – No my fingers are not pretty – I know that. They are not straight and slim – I know that. They are not fair and evenly pigmented – I know that. But they are mine and they are what I’ve got. If you find them offensive then I’m sorry and I don’t intend to offend your sensibilities of what is good or proper. I’m not a model of any sort. Bumps and bruises, curvy and lumpy, I am what I am and quite content 🙂 If you can understand that then you are welcome and if you can’t…..you are even more 😀
