Summertime Sadness

Press Sample

Hi, lovelies!  I hope everyone had a safe and wonderful weekend.  Mine was pretty low-key.  I didn't even get pics of fireworks this year!  I really wish I had, though.  There were some pretty neat ones!

I thought I would start the week with some fail-art since I didn't join in with a holiday mani.  I wanted to do a toothpick marble like the one Shelia at Pointless Cafe did a tutorial for earlier in the week.  I have no idea how, but I totally messed it up.  Royally.  I think maybe my polish dried before I dragged it?  No clue.  So, take a look!:
See that mess?  I have no clue why it didn't work, so I don't know how to fix it!  I also don't really like the colors together like I thought I would.  

Look at that macro!  I figured out the macro setting on my camera and found a good way to use it without getting blurry pics.  YAY!  Coincidently, this was the only nail I liked.  I actually really like it.  I just wish the rest had come out like this one!  

I will be trying this again.  It is easy (when it works), and it takes little to no time at all, so I won't be investing much if I keep screwing them up!  So what do you guys think?  What's your favorite "quick" art technique?  Thanks for stopping in! 



  1. It's not a mess at all, I love abstract manicures and yours is pretty !
    When I don't have time to do my nails, I use a crackle nail polish. Not a real nail art but it does it work :)

  2. Thank you so much! I still use crackle, as well. I just can't seem to do art I love otherwise!


Even though I will read every comment you leave (I love them!), please do not leave spam (such as links) or disrespectful comments. They will be deleted. I have an email, you can always send links there! Thanks everyone <3
