But all good things must come to an end. In this case the polish was just growing with my nail, and it was time to either commit, and backfill, or move on! And, as you know, I'm not one to stick to one nail polish style for too long! So off came the gorgeous glittery sand!
But it was late at night. And I was in a hurry. And I did make a complete mess of a simple coat or two of OPI Fly, my new favourite teal colour!
What to do with a messed up mani? Fake it 'til you make it, baby! In this context, 'fake it' means 'pretend you always intended to do some stylie nail art, while secretly covering up your smears and scratches'!! And I would have gotten away with it, but I have to come clean. One of my favourite quotes is from Scott Adams, creator of Dilbert. He said "Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep." Truly a mantra to live by!
So, here's my quick fix - a quick dip of a wet nail into a tub of teal nail caviar! Do you think I got away with it?
|Voila! Feature nail! Just like I planned it all along.....|
But it got me through the last day of the week at work, and it'll get me through Saturday morning coffee! Then I'm looking forward to a very relaxing Saturday night with all the nail art goodies out - and a new blog post to follow!
Have a great weekend!
