A focus on nails/nail polish, but more likely just a bag of mixed nuts!

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!
