Oh my goodness!!! I’m teaching some art classes at the Community Center here in town. I teach 3 on Tuesdays and I just started teaching one on Saturdays. The Saturday class is a mixed media/collage class and amidst looking at all kinds of collages, creating some of my own, and thinking of lessons to do with the kids, I got inspired to do a collage on my nails. I had seen this collage that was all cool colors with an accent of one warm color and I thought, “Hey! That’d be cute!” My favorite color is orange so I thought I might do a cool color scheme with orange as the warm accent. I got out all my favorite blue/green polishes, an orange and an orange shimmery microglitter….
… and set out to paint a collage (although not exactly mixed media) on my nails. Here is how it turned out (please brace yourself!!! I will not be held responsible for any sudden blindness or projectile vomiting)…
Oh my! I like to tell myself if I just had stopped with the cool scheme and left out the orange it’d be better…. but the truth is… it’s still a monstrosity of a mani.
Hahaha… seriously though… the hideousness of this mani will haunt my dreams forever. If you know what movie that’s (sorta) from, bonus points for you!! :)Next time I wanna make a collage, I think I’ll just stick to my art supplies! You’re welcome.
Have your ever created a monster mani? (and I DON’T mean a cute one for Halloween!) Let me know and share in my shame! Haha. 😉
