Can't win 'em all.

I was way over my head with this idea. Not only do I not own any real nail art supplies, but I have a limited amount of time to work since my husband can only entertain my daughter for so long. Everything is chunky, smudged, dented, and fugs. This was supposed to be a reindeer and some kind of candy cane-esque striping, but I think it looks like a melting mouse and a kindergarten art project.

The "stripey" nail's cuticle is nice and flooded. I need to learn cleanup.

Ho! Ho! Ho! Tacky Christmas!

Dent brought to you by my daughter's thumb.

Yes, that's a cat hair stuck to the polish on the right. Ugh.

Parts of the skin around my nails are pretty much callouses right now. I've dealt with some of the cuticle issues, but I don't know how to fix this. You can see it really well in the closeup of the stripes. It's really gross. The skin keeps peeling down to the edges of the nails and causing hang-nails on almost every finger. Does anyone know how to fix this?


  1. I think this looks cute! I especially like your little reindeer.

  2. Thank you. I'm a little overly critical of myself, lol.
