Saran wrap manicure

This is my first attempt of this manicure. This is how I have done it:
1. Apply a base color and wait until it dries completely. One coat should be enough. My base color is a light grey.
2. Apply a thick coat of the second color. I used a light lilac to avoid strong contrast between the color and to hide my possible mistakes.
3. Grab a little thick plastic bag and wrap it so that it looks like on the 4th picture.
4. Without waiting for the second color to dry, tap it with the plastic bag. This will practically rip off the second coat of polish where the bag makes contact with your nail.
5. If you ripped of to much you can correct it "manually" applying by applying the missing color.
6. Wait until it dries and apply a shiny or matte top coat for finishing. You will get a watermarbleish look.

Illusion Shatter

After my last manicure fail I wanted to show you something nice.
This is also a shatter manicure: as base I used a light green-purple-ish polish. The shatter is a mauve shatter I brought last year in Bulgaria.

I like the result, what do you think?

Base: Avon Nailwear Pro - Illusion

Shatter: Golden Rose Graffiti Nail Art - Nr. 05 

I like it how the base turned to a light pink/purple because of the shatter.

Manicure fail

As I brought the L'Oreal nail polish (nr. 608 Luxembourg Garden) I imagined myself a nice manicure, but finally I ended up with this:

L'Oreal - nr. 608 Luxembourg Garden (base, 2 coats)

Flormar Graffiti - Nr. G05 Yellow (crackle)

Moyra - Top Coat Fast Dry  (1 coat)

This is the second time I used the Flormar Yellor Crackle polish and I am very disappointed. Not because of the formula (that works great) but because of the color. It is...unwearable from my point of view. What color would you associate a yellow crackle with?
