Failed Flower Monday

Hey everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend! I had a TON of fun! I went out on Friday with Brooke and a few other friends to get dinner and sing karaoke! I am not a singer by any means, but we got up on stage and sang screamed Love Shack. It was a blast! On Saturday, Brooke and I did a little shopping at Old Navy (get it $2 tank tops!) and got pedicures (I highly recommend My Chihuahua Bites, by the way!), and laid out by the pool! We also picked up these Pandora Bracelets and got matching best friend charms. They are so cute! The charm is two dangling butterflies that connect together and pull apart to make two individual charms. I love my best friend!!
On Sunday, we took a trip to the city to shop at some nail supply stores! The Pride Parade as well as the Taste of Chicago were taking place, so the city was INSANE! But I managed to find a few goodies! Here is what's in store:


Now, not all of this is mine! Some of this is for swaps/sales, and some is for my 200 follower giveaway! I can't believe I am at that point already! You guys are truly amazing!! Thank you! :)

Now, onto the failed flower mani. In the facebook group I am a part of, every Monday we do different "themes". This week was floral. I started with a base coat of OPIs "Play the Peonies". It wasn't the best application (probably my fault), but I knew I was going to stamp over it, so I just let it be.


Then I stamped with Orly's Passion Fruit and Purple Crush using a flower image in one of the Bundle Monster plates. It did not come out how I imagined in my my head, but it was late and I was tired so I just left it. I then used China Glaze's "For Audrey" to stamp a different image on top, but that was an epic fail. The color wasn't pigmented enough so it just looks blah. Oh well, lesson learned! 


Have a great day, everyone! :)

  1. Sounds like a really fun weekend! I love shopping, especially with best friends.

    I already said it in the group but I still really love this manicure. It's like abstract flowers that look really good.
