Sinful Colors Flutter Swatches and The Purple Crumpet Fairy Challenge: Pink and Purple Nails

  I had such high hopes for this mani, but it turns out that I suck at anything other than using a stamper.  So freaking frustrating.  Sometimes I even suck at that.  I really wanted to take this mani off but I am running low on time and I am commited to showing the good, bad, and the ugly.  So, here is one of my most hated manis ever.  I hope you enjoy.  :-)

Base coat:  Chip Skip from OPI and Avon Smooth Beginnings
Base color: Flutter from Sinful Colors - 3 coats
Purple: Let's Talk from Sinful Colors
Top coat: Sally Hansen Insta Dri Anti-Chip Top Coat

And here is my crappy mani!

Well, at lease Flutter is  a really pretty color.  What do you do when a mani doesn't work?  Hope you all have a great day!

I'm sure if you check out these other participants blogs, you will be much more impressed.
