quit while you're ahead...

Good morning! This is my last day in the Big Apple. I'm sure I'm probably crying about it right now. I probably never wanna leave.
I wonder how much shopping I'll have done by now... I guess you will soon see!

Today's post is something I thought I wouldn't post because it is so weird but I figured I should always share my hilarious fails just so you don't think I am alllllways perfect... ;)

This manicure started with good intentions! Lime green glittery goodness!

This is one coat of Orly - Here Comes Trouble, a great glitter from the Pin-Up Collection, over 2 coats of China Glaze - I'm With The Lifeguard, the neon green from the Summer Neons collection.

I love both of these polishes and they pair together really well!
I wore them for a day but then I felt like I should add some more glitter.

I said hey, let's add some more Orly glitter! I slapped on a coat of Orly - Spazmatic.
It didn't really do it for me.

Hey, let's add MORE!

...Still not pretty. The added coat of Milani - Fuchsia Jewel FX didn't make me happy.

Now I had no idea where to go.
For some reason I said to myself, "I bet this will look REALLY good if I made it into a jelly sandwich!"

Oooooh boy. Someone threw up their easter eggs. Yuck!
China Glaze - Oxygen is the white jelly.

The moral of this story, quit while you're ahead, and enjoy that green glitter without adding a bunch of crap.

See you tomorrow with a live post, so long as I don't spend my entire day sleeping/recovering. Yikes!


  1. Lol- disasticures happen to us all. You were very brave to post yours. Though I don't think it's as bad as you think it is.

  2. Haha oh dear. I think it looked nice with all the other glitter added though - the more glitter the better!

  3. haha! I love that you put up sucha post! I know what u mean by "quit while u r ahead!" have done that a couple of time :D

  4. LOL! Thank you for posting this 'disaster' because it does make me feel better! And it isn't as bad as you think!

  5. lol I've done this a million times. I always think more glitter will help but not always true

  6. Aww haha, I think it looks okay!

    Jazz x

  7. hahahaha "someone threw up their easter eggs" cracked me up. I actually like the end product... it's like ugly/pretty which is something that always fascinates me.

  8. The glitter was okay, I think things took a left turn at the jelly sandwich part! Poor easter eggs :( lol!

  9. Haha! I love the way you word things. I've definitely had "damn, I should have quit while I was ahead" moments myself, so I feel your pain! I think I would wear that last one around Easter, though--I never thought to do it like that, but the pastels in the green base look like eggs in a basket with the green grass. Not too horrible!

  10. It's definitely not as bad as you think, but I definitely agree that the white jelly was a bad idea!

  11. Hahaha this is hilarious! I've totally done this before...

  12. haah! good..better...awesome...amazing...bad! :-p but its not that bad really

  13. super pretty *____________*
