Ugly Manicure Monday - 08

Hi there!

This ugly manicure comes courtesy of Erika at Polish Fixation...

Maybelline - Peachy Petal and
Lynderella - Sweets to the Sweet.

Erika painted 2 coats of Peachy Petal and 1 coat of Sweets to the Sweet over the top. She said she thought the glitter would look good with the peach color, but she didn't realize how much of Sweets to the Sweet's white base would show through. She thought it might be more sheer if she applied it lightly, but instead, it ended up being cloudy and glue-like.

Here's a look at Peachy Petal by itself...

Thanks, Erika!

I don't think this is necessarily a case of an ugly manicure... it's more so a case of an unexpected manicure. However, I do think it would look much better with a clear glitter base.

What do you think?

If you have an ugly manicure, I'd love to feature it! Email me with what polish you used and what you intended your manicure to look like :-)

Until next time...


  1. I would like to see more blue sparkles but even the white ones are not bad!

  2. It really isn't ugly, but I agree a clear base would have been better.

  3. This actually looked good to me in the smaller pictures, though I agree that the white spots are less than appealing.
