A Pretty Epic Nail Fail - Outlining

I've admired this outlined or framed manicure by Kayla Shevonne.  I think it is so classy looking (especially the black and white) and I wanted to give it a try.  I had started with a coat of white, and then 2 coats of Orly - Elation Generation.  I really really wanted to like this polish, it is so stinking pretty in the bottle!   And maybe if i wore it on its own, or maybe over a dark pink, I will like it.  But with wearing it over white, it just looked thick.  I used a black striper, which I have used previously and haven't had any issues; maybe using such a long, thin brush was NOT the way to go! I will have to try again using a nail art brush, one that is a little shorter, and easier (for me) to control.
I do like the idea of this combo of colors, but wow does this look BAD!  :)
My husband even asked me if I thought it was Halloween!

**All polishes used in this post were purchased by me.**


  1. Haahahahaha! It's not as bad as you think. I Loooove those two colors together.

  2. Aw thanks Nik!! My right hand was even worse if you can imagine!


I absolutely would love comments!! Even if it's a simple smiley face :)
