This post title is, in part, a nod to MizzChievous, who posted about "Fall Nails" earlier today. Sadly, to The Ninja's eyes (and several others, according to the FB comments) it said "Fail Nails".
While this mani of The Ninja's isn't a Fall deal, it's surely a Fail. Well, at least the pictures were...
What you see was an attempt to cheer up using one of The Ninja's absolute favorite nail polishes of all times: Zoya Anaka (previously reviewed here). This happy raspberry is sunshine in a bottle (only... not yellow. or hot. well...whatever!).
The Ninja wanted to add another favorite into the mix: OPI Mad as a Hatter. She's sure most of you are familiar with it, but for those who aren't (hi, Mom & Dad!), it's a mardi gras-colored glitter bomb.
So, The Ninja debated whether or not to do an accent nail with MaaH or do French tips* with it. The latter won the dubious honors.
Aside from the craptastic lighting, it certainly did what it was intended to do: looked cheery. The execution wasn't great, because The Ninja had never done this with MaaH before and had trouble finding the right balance with it on just the tips.
What do you think?
PS: Here's the "made a friend" part of the story...
Dropping off Little Ninja at school, this little fella was spotted nursing a wounded wing in the parking lot. He recovered on The Ninja's hand, then was placed on a bush. Then he immediately took off, a little wobbly but not too much the worse for wear, towards the back of a field.
*With apologies to classic and classy French women who, The Ninja is certain, would sooner do this manicure than jump off of the Eiffel Tower.
