SassyNail Nail-Aween Nail Art Challenge: Day 4 Mummy Nails FAIL!!!

     I decided to skip MSMD (Monkey See, Monkey Do) Monday's again this week so that I could get past my mummy nail challenge hurdle.  I have been putting this off for far to long and I knew that since the month was half way over today I just needed to buck up and do this.  See, my problem is that I don't like to do the same type of thing as everyone else.  I like to be a little different.  (Funny because I spent my entire childhood trying to be like everyone else, but that is an entirely different issue :-))  Everyone in the challenge came up with awesome mummy mani's and I thought mine would be just as creative, but alas, it is not.  My husband thought it was a gingerbread man!!!  See, fail!  Lol.  I don't even want to show you guys this but I promised myself when I started my blog that I would post the good, the bad, and the ugly.  I don't think I knew what I was getting myself into.
     There is a silver lining to this mani though, well actually, two.  I did NO cleanup and I got to use my first ever China Glaze polish!!!  I just bought it the other day when I was shopping for my nail polish buddy and got uber jealous of the beauties I was purchasing for her!  I'm Not Lion was just released as part of China Glaze's On Safari collection.  I only wanted two of the polishes from the collection, and this was one of them!

Base coat: Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Hardener
Base color: I'm Not Lion from China Glaze - 3 coats
White base color: White On The Spot from Milani - 1 thick coat
Mummy/gingerbread man ;-): Black acrylic paint from Artist's Loft
Top coat: Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Anti-Chip Top Coat

Taken inside my truck with the flash because I don't care how the picture turned out!
