A Look Back: LacquerGlamour Fails and Semi-Fails of 2011

 

I thought it was a good idea at the time...

The end of the year is upon us already! Time sure does fly. I learned a lot about nail polish, nail care, and nail art in 2011. Throughout this year I have definitely stretched my imagination and skills as far as nail talent goes and I enjoyed it all.

Since learning isn’t without failures, there are plenty of nail looks I have attempted that just didn’t turn out right. Even though I didn’t document the majority of them, I do have some embarrassing pictorial evidence of nail looks that were horrible from the jump, or nail looks that were ok until I saw the pics of them that captured every flaw I didn’t notice at first.

There are also plenty of nail looks that I loved, but the pictures that I took didn’t turn out right. Either the lighting was off, or the “prop” idea I had just didn’t translate well.  One thing that I have learned is that just because a picture looks good initially, once I reduce it down to size, and insert into a post, it doesn’t always capture the essence and awesomeness (in my mind) of the original size. Because of that, a lot of post I had chosen to do got pushed aside.

So for every pic that I post, there are probably 100 or more pics that I had taken, and at least half of those got deleted, so that means that I have a plethora of nail pics on my computer. I decided it was the bench warmers time to shine, and that it’d be fun to look back and share what I deemed not up to par and didn’t make it this past year onto the pages of LacquerGlamour, for whatever reason.

So here we go in no particular order:

I liked this purple ombre look, but I didn't like the way any of the pics I took turned out.

Poppin’ Nail Color Of The Week: NYC New York Color in a New York Minute Quick Dry Nail Polish in Chinatown

If I could only wear two nail colors in the winter, the first would be a deep, seductive burgundy, and the second would be a ravishing dark plum (more like eggplant, but who finds those ravishing).
