Nail Fail - Stained Glass Glitter Nails

Wow.  These nails did not turn out even remotely as I had imaged they would.  It took an average amount of time, but I think the fail of it was due to the harsh/brightness of the colors.  I think I would have liked it better if the glitters were of a softer tone.  Also because the separation between each of the colors wasn't as clean as I would have liked, I added the black lines which makes it even more harsh on the eyes.  One might say it's edgy.  And maybe it is.  But it's not what I had envisioned for this design.  So it goes into the category of Nail Fails.  Maybe when I get more glitter polishes I'll try it again.

I used:
Color Club - Chelsey Girl under Color Club - Sexy Siren; Color Club - Puccilicious under Color Club - Tru Passion; Color Club Limelight under Color Club - Object of Envy; Color Club - Almost Famous under Color Club - Sultry Diva; OPI - The Thrill of Brazil under Color Club - The Art of Seduction; Rimmel - Black Satin applied with a detail nail art brush.  Topped off with a coat of Revlon - Quick Dry Top Coat.
yeesh.  think I used enough polishes?  lol..


  1. Omigosh, this is so awesome! So definitely not a nail fail as far as I'm concerned. I've got to try this sometime!

  2. This isn't a fail! this is great! :D

    I follow your blog now for a pretty long time and maybe you followed mine on Melaniesnailpolish (The Color Palette), but I moved to a new blog that fits my ideas. Maybe you would like to take a look at
    Maybe I see you there :)

  3. Hmmm it looks good, but as you said it is a little harsh for stained glass. I still like it though. Maybe rather than glitter nail polish go for colors more like OPI's the color to know sort of those sheer iridescent colors and then outline in a soft gold?

  4. I don't see this as a fail at all! I think its really awesome! Just found your blog-am a new follower!
