When Nails Go Bad – NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On March - 29 - 2010

Sometimes you just shouldn’t be trusted with a bottle of fuschia polish and flakies.  I don’t have too many NOTD monstrosities, but this one is pretty darn ming.

So that you can avoid the same retina-melting combination, we’re talking Nails Inc. – China Town with Inglot #204 daubed over the top.

Had any errors of beauty judgement recently?

    You know what.. I actually like it hahahaha

  2. Charlie says:

    Are you mad? Thats quite pretty!

  3. caz says:

    …..I kinda like it :3 But gaudy is always a winner for me!

  4. Sarah says:

    Ever so slightly Barbie… but not totally criminal.

  5. I quite like it…….. Probably for a costume party rather than actual wear but hey, who knows when I might need to go to a ‘trailer trash redneck’ bash 😉

  6. AlicatAHL says:

    Maybelline do a similar flaky nailpolish which I put over black the other day and it looked divine. Even my husband commented, so it must have been quite eye-catching!

    I quite like it to be honest…

    are you kidding me? Hand on my heart, I find that this is absolutely gorgeous! bright, funky and oh and anything with blue reflects on it will ALWAYS have my thumbs up and all the other fingers too. It only looks not as good on the index finger, but that is just because the nail is not as long as the others.
    Sorry if you’ve already dealt with it somewhere else on your blog (going to search) but how does this compare to the gosh flakies, as in price and consistency and so on. Was the gosh a rainbow rather than just being blue? Is it easy to find this inglot flakies online? xx

    I kinda like it too! My worst NotD disaster was the same flakies layered over Rococo Utility. Firkin’ disgusting!

  9. Julia Arenas says:

    mmm…not so my type but i find the sheen on top pretty…

  10. Mika chan says:

    You must be crazy, woman. I like it!!

  11. I quite liked it too! 😛

  12. Now I’m at home and on my laptop and not my crappy work computer I like it even more! Pretty! I’d love it on my toenails or is that just me? xxx

  13. Rebecca says:

    I love that you used the word “ming” in your post. I don’t think that this mani is so bad though!

  14. Rae says:

    You’re nuts; I like this 😉 So maybe it’ll scar some retinas with its brightness, but hey! it still looks fab. It’s like a post-modernist take on the 70’s =D

  15. I quite like it as well – I’d probably rock it with an all-black outfit, if I’m wearing hot pink on my nails I usually wear dark clothes.

  16. I think it looks terrific. I love fuchsia colors. The flakes just add some extra pizazz. Are the flakes rough? I bought a flake polish and it was rough needing coats of clear to smooth it over.

  17. Right, you lot.. you know all your taste right?

    It’s in your mouth. 😉 Sort it out! Them’s h00r nails!

  18. Eliza says:

    Oh well, you gotta try right?

    As for mistakes, well me, far too many to mention.

    E x

  19. gio says:

    I think that looks very pretty actually! 😉

  20. You’re all just being bastards now 😉

  21. Lizzard says:

    Hmm not to stop your rant but I’m a fan of that! It reminds me of the irridescent nail polishes – the bright pink with the purply when you move your nails around in the light. I am a fan! Hmph!

  22. danielle says:

    I think it’s fab… but what do I know, I’m sporting green nails (with blue thumbs)!

  23. Kelly says:

    I actually really love them. However, I also love gaudy, so…

  24. Idk if it’s because I have bad taste and I like all things bright (and occasionally garish) but I effing LOVE this.

  25. KT says:

    Where can you get that Inglot flakes stuff? I’m in the USA and can’t seem to find it anywere, not even online :( Looks like it would be a lot of fun to spice up boring polishes.

  26. liloo says:

    I will stick to my guns and I like it!

  27. Riddhi says:

    I love the topcoat. The actual color isn’t doing that much for me when layered, but the topcoat looks very nice!

  28. wendy says:

    I’m wearing this on my nails today – I went to Inglot specially to get the top coat :)
