The next polish "holy grail" is something I have seen on tutorial posts looking so simple, but I haven't attempted as I didn't think it would work out right on my short nails.
I decided to use a-england's Holy Grail, Tristam and Galahad to create a fish tail accent on this hand as the original accent nail had an accident....
The accent nail on this hand was originally a-england's Avalon topped with Fantasy Fire, but then along came a tea pot and killed it.
To say my first attempt was a disaster is something of an understatement. So I thought sod it and did the rest of my left hand. Then I reached for the acetone. To be fair the fifth one was better than the first one, but none of them were pleasing. It doesn't help that I love tape manis and crisp lines.
Any way here's the attempts I made, no clean up as it was just about to be cleaned off.
For now this is one Holy Grail which will remain... I may try it again someday but I'm not holding much hope. Nail Fail!
