So you get to go home early because a lesson is cancelled. What do you do? Catch up with some homework? Use the extra time to study? Nope, you do your nails. Well I’m not exactly endorsing it but that’s what I did…
I’d seen a nail design on Pinterest where you drop nail varnish into a bowl and then swirl it to make a tie dye effect. Well, let’s say things on Pinterest always look easier than they turn out to be in real life.
1. Okay so first I painted on my white base coat and put sellotape around all of my nails so I didn’t get the nail varnish all over them
2. I then dropped the nail varnish into a bowl of water (the clingfilm is just so I didn’t stain the bowl). This was my first obstacle: the nail varnish started to either sink to the bottom or just spread out and not mix with the other colours.
3. Even so, I persevered and place my nail on top of the swirly mess I’d created so far.
This was the best nail:
You can see by middle finger that the rest were not so successful and I took it all off straight away and went for this more simplistic design instead:
The moral of this story: Don’t underestimate the difficulty of things put on Pintrest. I’ve tested it and failed.
