Monkey See, Monkey Do Monday--Lucy's Stash!

Hi Readers! Today's MSMD mani didn't get me the thrill I thought it would.   Instead of a roller coaster I got the ferris wheel I think.  I first saw this mani awhile ago over on Lucy's Stash and was blown away.  Mine just fell short.  
I don't know why I don't like it, I think it's because my foil shards are too big OR the whole nude nails thing could be throwing me off.  Nude nails?? OMG perish the thought!
Maybe my rainbow colors aren't rainbowy enough for me
I just can't put my finger on it
It's sort of like green beans to me--I don't hate it but I don't love it
Here's the side by side comparison of mine and Lucy's
I might have to try something on this mani to see if I can love it--poor mani!

  1. I like it. The shiny foils over nude nails appeals to me for some reason. :)

    1. Erin basically I followed Lucy's tutorial. I applied the nude polish and when it was dry I applied the nail glue. Then is super short bursts I used several different foil colors to get this look. Some of them are a bit chunkier than I had wanted though

  7. I think it is great! What if you had a nude color under the foil to avoid seeing the nail line?
