The one with Fail Art Thursday - my Chalkboard Nails contest entry

So Sarah over at Chalkboard Nails is having a contest. You have to use dotting tools to create a design. I'm not good at nail art, stamping or dotting tools, but I figured I'd give it a try. My husband gave me the idea to try the solar system. I did the art in stages because it was kind of complicated.
Base is WnW Black Creme, then sponged with a little LA Colors Wired (a shimmery blue). I then topped that with Northern Lights Hologran Top Coat and let it go over night hahahah. Colors used for the planets and sun include WnW Spoiled Designated Driver, Correction Tape, Pumping Gas and I Tripped on the Red Carpet, Cult Nails Tied Up, Sinful Colors UFO, OPI Jade is the New Black, and Zoya Kristen, Tallulah and Carey.

My thumb is obviously the sun; pointer has Mercury and Venus; middle has Earth and Mars; ring has Jupiter and Saturn; and my pinky has Uranus and Neptune. I fought the urge to put a little purple dot on my pinky for Pluto, but I didn't.

It's not much, but I did it! I can say I will never enter a anil art contest again hahahahahha It's too much stress.
