Sure about that? 4th of July nails fails X2

Above is Sally Hansen Diamond Chrome with Love my Nails Glory. 2 coats of each and a coat of TC. That's what I ended up wearing for the real Independence day. Below is another 4th of July attempt that did not turn out as planned. 

I started with 3 coats of Wet n Wild White, then added a coat of Clear and sprinkled on a mix of some pretty red and blue bar glitter that I found at Micheal's Crafts store.... The glitter bled into the clear polish - boo - but I will work with this and try again with another glitter/polish combo. It does have an interesting look to it but I was hoping for some stunning red and blue bar glitter on a pure white base.

On my ring nails I added some silver stars..... that turned out all right. Also these are my real nails, I was doing some fun paper mache projects during the holiday weekend as well as digging in the garden.

 Index nail ( far right ) has a coat of Clear polish - which made the glitter bleed....

glitter I used

and the finished Mani ( lol )

what a bummer that it didn't work out for you! my husband said over my shoulder that the bar glitter does look cool over white though. :)

The failicure was a good idea, it was the materials that let you down. I think I coined a new word!
