NAIL FAIL: fall leaf

Hi Everyone,

I've got a 'Nail Fail' for you today.

For those of you unfamiliar with this series:
     Nail Fails are posts that I publish with no particular regularity.  I only post updates to this series when I attempt to create a nail design which didn't remotely resemble my intended aesthetic, or for some other reason simply falls short of my expectations.  It certainly doesn't mean that it's necessarily an 'ugly' design.  But for some reason or other, I decided to ditch the tutorial and not post it to
     So instead, as my blog followers, you get to see the reality of my nail art trials and tribulations and the reality of my craft: not every design is a winner.  
I've done some designs that didn't quite work out and I've been lazy about posting them so here you go.  I'll be posting one each day for the next few days.
This one was supposed to be a leaf.  Inspired by autumn weather and scenery.
Yeah.  just didn't turn out well.  I should have stopped before adding the red 'accent' onto the yellow leaf.  I'm pretty sure that's when I decided this design would end up in this series.
Oh well.  better luck next year.

Colours used:
China Glaze - Passion
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear - Mellow Yellow
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear - Cherry Red
