Twinsie Tuesday: Most Hated

1 May

Hello hello again!  It’s Tuesday!  Let me start off by welcoming two new Twinsies to the group:  Cordia and Tara.  You’ll find the links to their blogs below.  This week we’re showing our most hated or unflattering polishes, unless you’re me.  I looked through all my polishes and honestly couldn’t choose one that I hated or would consider unflattering.  They all have their own unique place in my collection.  So, I decided to show you one of my most hated manis.

I did this one a couple months ago.  It was one of those that didn’t really have a direction.  I started out with the intention of doing a yellow and grey combination, but once I got the grey on the yellow, it looked like skyscrapers.  I kept adding to it and it just kept getting worse.  I took pictures even though I already knew I hated it.

It looks like some kind of alien eyeball peeking up over the top of my nail.  I think the colors go great together, but, oh man.  I just don’t have anything else that’s positive to say about it.  Fail.

Let’s see if I can remember what polishes these are.  I believe the yellow is American Apparel Butter, the grey is Sally Hansen Wet Cement.  I’m pretty sure the blue is Sinful Colors Savage and I’m sure the black is China Glaze Liquid Leather.

Be sure the check out all the haters today:

    Looks a little like dead bunny ears… sorry. that’s graphic. :D I usually don’t picture my hated manis. Good on you!

      It does sort of look like bunny ears. I take pictures of pretty much any mani that I complete; whether I like it or not.

      That’s an awesome visual. I kinda like it, though. I think it’s the looong-ness of the design and the thin stripes.

    Oooh, grey and yellow. Not good. But good call keeping the pic!

      I knew the picture would come in handy at some point. :)

    LOL @ alien eyeball!!! I hate when you try to fix a mani and it only gets worse with everything you add to it.

    • TopCoatIt May 1, 2012 at 9:39 am #

      I know! I should’ve stopped while I was ahead.

    Oh…It does look like big eyeballs…I was thinking that before I even read it, lol. They are kinda cute though :O)

    • TopCoatIt May 1, 2012 at 9:41 am #

      It was supposed to just be some abstract/geometric shapes, but eyeballs is what I ended up with. Thanks Jenna!

    Not gonna lie. I think this is beautiful! Maybe I am just in love with the combination of colors? Not sure, but I think this is great! It’s rare for me to not like your manis though!

    • TopCoatIt May 1, 2012 at 9:43 am #

      Thanks Brandi! This is a sneaky one. I think the colors are great and it photographed really well. It tries really hard to make you like it.

    hahaha, love the alien eyeballs comment. i agree with the people above, i see dead bunny ears! it’s a great color combination though!

  8. Anna May 1, 2012 at 11:03 am #

    It looks like bunny ears! (=

    • TopCoatIt May 1, 2012 at 9:23 pm #

      Wow, lots of bunny ears! Looking at it again just now, it reminds me of Squidward from Sponge Bob Square Pants. Isn’t that sort of what his eyes look like? :)

  9. ChiChi May 1, 2012 at 11:32 am #

    Lol, Alien eyeball. Good thinking on keeping the pic.

  10. Nory May 1, 2012 at 11:49 am #

    It is kind weird but the colors are cool.

  11. Ashesela May 1, 2012 at 1:19 pm #

    This reminds me of when I tried to do a manicure for the Chinese New Year… I spent a loong time on it and it just kept getting worse and worse, lol!

    • TopCoatIt May 1, 2012 at 9:24 pm #

      Isn’t that sooo frustrating! You just keep adding to it hoping to save it, but fail anyway.

  12. AllThatIsGorgeous May 1, 2012 at 2:07 pm #

    It does look like eyeballs, but I like the color combo!

  13. Meredith May 1, 2012 at 2:34 pm #

    I actually think this is pretty interesting and I like it!

    • TopCoatIt May 1, 2012 at 9:25 pm #

      Thanks Meredith! One of those that you definitely have to stare at to try to figure out if it’s supposed to be something.

  14. Katherine @ Haul of Fame May 1, 2012 at 9:43 pm #

    I see bunny ears as well. I don’t think it’s that terrible, but you lucked out saving the photo!
