31 Inspired Days of Nail Art – Day 26: Video Game Inspired Nails –FAIL!

I feel like a total failure today because I don’t have a manicure to share with you. I’m sorry, Nicole! First, I want to say that I was not short on ideas, but they turned into nightmares once I tried to execute them. I did three, yes three!!!, separate manicures that all looked completely disasterous. My first attempt was inspired by the Neo-Geo game Bust-a-move which I used to play with my brother all the time. How does one mess up bubbles/circles? Ugh! Then I tried my hand at doing a manicure inspired by Chrono Trigger which is my favorite RPG of all time. Huge mistake. This turned out worse than my Bust-a-move manicure. And lastly I tried to do some Tetris nails. Oh dear Fish Jesus, how could I even mess that up?  I think today was just not a good nail day for me so I decided to just stop there. However, Nicole more than made up for my lack of inspiration with her awesome Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle nails.

Aren’t these adorable? Click on the picture or click here to see her post about these nails and how she created the look.

Today I went to my dusties because I was on the hunt for a few polishes for some lovely ladies whose birthdays are coming up. Well, I scored! Unfortunately, I also scored like 10 polishes for me. I am a failure all around today. I really hope that I don’t completely mess up on the next challenge. No matter what I come up with–disaster or not, I will post it. I may regret this statement.

    1. I know. 🙁 I kind of did want to do mario bros nails but so many people have done them that I just wanted to try something different and of course everything I tried was a big fat fail!

  1. It’s ok, we all (speaking for myself & others who group themselves into “nailFail” have Fail days….mine more than yours & others! Onwards to victory! *cocks the shotgun* I’m sorry TMI……*head down in shame*

    1. hahaha! I was expecting a nail fail after the last two good manicures. I’m having a hard time with the next challenge too so maybe I will have a “what NOT to do post for tomorrow.” lol

  2. Thanks for sharing my nails! It’s ok you had a disasticure day. It happens and is sooooo frustrating. Did you SEE my Kirby nails?? Thank fish Jesus I didn’t stick w those and had this moment of genius about the outline turtle shell nails. Now we are on to movie nails, right? I have NO clue what I’m going to do for that but I have to get them done tonight to take pics tomorrow. Wish me luck!

    1. You know what? I thought your Kirby nails were super cute. I don’t know what you’re talking about. I was so frustrated with my nails today that everything I did looked like crap to me. My brother was looking at me like I was insane. So instead of dwelling on it, I cooked dinner and we’re gonna eat right now. lol Maybe I’ll so some swatches of two polishes I got today–new brand! Oh man…I have no idea what I am going to do for movie nails. I am going to have to write down some ideas.

    1. Finally someone remembers bust a move. lol I’ve seen a few neo geo arcades that still have that game and I always have to stop and play a game. 🙂

  3. Bummer that the video game manicure didn’t work out. Exciting (and yet potentially shameful?) that you have new dusty finds!

    1. Always shameful! LOL I got so frustrated with all the ugly designs yesterday so now I’m fearing the movie nails. I’m going to start trying tonight.

    1. I would love to see a Street Fighter mani! I used to play that so much too. In fact, just to annoy my brother, I still scream “hadouken” and try to pretend my fist is the fireball. His response is always: “How old are you??”
