Adventures in Nail Vinyls Part 2 | Houndstooth Nail Art Fail

Happy Wednesday! Today I have a nail art post to share with you, and as you can see by the title, it’s another fail. A few months back, I tried nail vinyls for the first time, and it did not go very well. You can read all about that HERE. I got the opportunity to review some more products from Born Pretty Store, so I decided I would give nail vinyls another try. Practice makes perfect, right?! Let me share with you what happened during round two of my nail vinyl adventures when I attempted a houndstooth manicure.

First things first, here is a look at the sheet of nail vinyls. I got a houndstooth pattern, and this time around the vinyls are a thicker material and less of a thin sticker. This sheet retails for $3.99 at Born Pretty Store HERE.

I made sure to let it dry completely this time, since in my last attempt the polish wasn’t thoroughly dry. I actually painted my nails one day, and let it dry overnight before going ahead with the vinyls.

Here is my result after applying the vinyls. As you can see, it still didn’t work out for me! I made sure to press down firmly on the vinyls, but I found that these did not stick well on my nails. That’s why I have a lot of big black splotches, and why the pattern isn’t very clear. It really is a bummer!

However, it still doesn’t look good enough for a manicure. I think I’m going to need to keep experimenting with these vinyls if I really want to get a good result.
