As far as following the directions goes, I technically did it all correctly. They just turned out a little bit funky. I'm thinking it has something to do with the colors I chose. BUT, I saw other pink options and thought it'd be cute, but I might have been a bit mistaken. Because now it looks slightly like little peppermints or something on my nails. All-in-all, I don't hate them, but I'm definitely not super proud of them either.
This is what I was going for...

I'm thinking if I want to try this again, I'll do a more "traditional" black/gold/white/silver-ish kind of color scheme, and see how that turns out instead...

Jeff doesn't think mine look like peppermints, because "peppermints are actually spiral, and you just have some equal signs around your dots." I mean, I guess he's right, but still. I showed my aunt my nails at lunch today, and without telling her what they were supposed to be or even what I thought they looked like, she also said they looked like peppermints! So there.
Paint night with my youth group is this Wednesday, so I'm sure they'll get crazy chipped and messed up during all the fun painting and messy festivities. Then after that I suppose I'll try something else! But for now, I'm rockin my peppermint nails for a few days.
And this is Nail Art #1 of my 10 different attempts before turning 25! (If you haven't read my Pledge of 25 Before 25, go back HERE and do so.)
Love to everyone, and happy Monday. Hopefully you've all made it through...
Also, this is my first link up for "Mani Monday" and if it goes well, I'll link up with these lovely ladies more often!
