Did someone say gradient...?? - Failed Nail Art

Lelack has decided that the theme for today's Nail Art Sunday is "Failed Nail Art". To me this is a difficult theme, not because I never fail - I do - a lot! ;), but because I never takes pictures of a failed nail art.
"Luckily" I did this gradient after the theme was announced so I snapped a few pictures of it ;)

This was supposed to be beautiful tone in tone holo gradient but the colors turned out to be too tone in tone. It all look just like one color :( But it's actually three holo polishes; Color Club Over the Moon, Jade Hypnose and Jade Energy.

What I learned from this mistake:
When doing a holo gradient, don't chose colors which is too close to each other ;)

Anyway, look at the lovely rainbows these polishes create :)

In the shade you see a tiny hint of the gradient ;)

Have you done any failed gradients or nail arts?

    1. Thanks! Maybe we just have to realize that holos are best on their own? ;)

  10. I can actually see the gradient well in the second picture! Even if it didn't turn out as defined as you had hoped, it still is a lovely mani with that blue holo. We can never get enough of those rainbows haha

    1. It's a very weak gradient in the second picture ;) not at all as I imagined it to be ;) But I agree with you on the rainbows - there can never be to many rainbows ;)

  11. Snygga regnbågar dock, och så lärde vi oss att det inte alltid stämmer med less is more. ;)

  12. Although you say that your gradient is not so visible, I think that it is beautiful, just look at the photo in the sun! :-)
