Ugly Manicure Monday - 23

Hi there!

This is a manicure I painted quite some time ago, and I just discovered the photograph buried in one of my laptops...

My nails painted with Julep - Carrie, Cameron, Natasha, and Molly.

I painted a base of Carrie, and then stippled Cameron and each of the other colors onto my nails. I had high hopes for this manicure... I imagined it looking as if each color faded perfectly into the next color- much like sponging produces. The brush I had on hand at the time was much too large and dense, so I think that was my main problem with blending. Additionally, the lines aren't delicate... and, instead, they look sloppy.

Have you tried something like this with a nail art brush? If so, how did it turn out?

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 like the colors you used. It is really not bad!

  2. I agree with the prior poster, I think the colors are reallly pretty and look nice. :)
