Mani Fail!

If you're an addict a big nail polish fan like I am, then you know that the best thing to do at a fellow blogger's place is to use her stash to try something new.  I was inspired by Mommy Does Her Nail's awesome fishnet glitter mani, and tried to do something amazing.  Tried, being the operative word.

I used Sinful Colors "Nirvana" with LA Colors Purple Glitter, and China Glaze "Electric Pinapple" with LA Colors Teal Glitter.  I really liked how the taupe and purple nails turned out, but the others just didn't contrast in a positive way like I was hoping. 

Oh well, a mani failure once in a while happens.]

Update:  The perfectionist in me (whom I normally try and keep hushed with a steady diet of coffee and chocolate) couldn't resist retyring the mani, and it turned out pretty fantastic in comparison:

I likey. The taupe and purple came out really pretty. I have to learn what colors compliment each other.

Sinful Nirvana looks like SOPI Metro Chic! I like it with the glitter.

I'm not usually a fishnets person but I think your updated mani looks good. I like the sparkles.

i love my electric pineapple, but i can't ever find a good color to compliment it... it's a tricky color, that's for sure.

@Gothampolish: I am so digging the fig/taupe trend right now. <3

@KB: Thank you! I like it on occasion, but not as an everyday thing.

@Sooya: My buddy paired it with Sally Hansen's purple crackle, the color contrasted really nicely.
