I decided to share my failed attempts with you today. Maybe you won't think they are that bad?
Here's something I tried with microbeads. The tips are Maybelline Goody Plum Drop and I lined them with light turquoise microbeads. I just didn't dig this mani at all :/
This one started with a base of OPI Alpine Snow Matte and then I did some zig zag and straight lines with my migi nail art pens. This one was just ok to me, didn't absolutely hate it, but didn't love it either.
The base for this one is L.A. Splash Golden Seahorse and then I made a sort of Ruffian look with glitter. The glitter is Orly Sashay my way.
