Floral Fix from a Professional Nightmare

Okay so I have finally finished uploading my backlog of nail photos! So now a more recent post. Yesterday I went to get a professional manicure because I had a bad week and wanted some pampering! I haven't had a professional manicure since I was in Mexico ( see my last post!). Anyway, the result was incredibly disappointing. I asked for a simple french because the salon had a limited number of polishes. The end result was not pretty. It was a rushed job, white polish was caked under my nails and I felt really awful. I cut my losses and figured that all I could do is fix the job myself! Here's a before and after!

I feel so much better with this floral design gracing my nails! I used this tutorial:

My only regret is that I applied top coat a little too soon after finishing the design so it smeared a little but I'm still happy with the results!

China Glaze - Re-Fresh Mint
OPI - Mermaid Tears
OPI  - Steady As She Rose
Essie - Luxedo
Sally Hansen - White On


  1. Nicely done Kate! I love the florals you did - I will definitely be stealing the design and trying them on my fingertips for sure!

  2. Wow, you got that done at a salon? Shocking! I love your design though!
