The one with Fail Art Thursday!

On Thursday, I'm going to try to start featuring nail art - and for right now, it's called Fail Art because I'm not good at it. If I get better at it (hahah) I might change the name....this is something I am really going to try! I had a lot of good suggestions on my FB page the other day, so I'm really going to branch out :) This will evolve every week (that I'm able to post).

I have received a set of dotting tools and some stamping items. Previously, all my nail art was done with toothpicks. I must admit, I have had one nail art win! It was donut nails. For today, I have a few fails I've had over the past few months.
This was a manicure I used for a family gathering, held outdoors back in October. Zoya Pippa, Zoya Jancyn and Pure Ice Superstar were used for the candy corn...then I topped it all with China Glaze Ghoulish Glow. The fail was the chipping and bubbling that happened....and how my lines are sort of jagged. I freehanded it all because I was scared of tape hahah

This was my first practice with dotting tools! Colors I used were OPI Jade is the New Black, Suzi Says Feng Shui, A Good Man-darin Is Hard to Find and Suzi Says Da! and Zoya Minka.You may not be able to tell it but on my middle finger is a mug of steaming coffee or cocoa. I don't think I had decided which it was haha My dots are all wonky and different sizes even tho I used the same size dotting tool for them all! Anyone have any tips on using dotting tools?
Stamping practice! It's over Julep Hayden. I wish I knew how it kept smudging :/ I go slow, clean between it my stamp? Am I not pressing hard enough? I would love tips on this as well!

So how do you think my new series will go? I'm hoping I'm able to stick with it and do this every Thursda! BTW, have you entered by blogoversary giveaway.

**DISCLAIMER**  I was not paid for this review by anyone. I either purchased these polishes myself or were given gifts as friends because I could not find the particular shade I wanted myself.  I am not a professional nail tech, nor do I want to be. I'm just someone who enjoys polishing my own nails :)
