31 Day Challenge Nail Fail

Okay, well I suppose it's more of a photo fail than a nail fail.

Today's challenge prompt was 'inspired by the supernatural'.  I struggled a bit with inspiration for this one, but finally I decided on some spoooooky eyes.

I painted my nails just plain for this one, then added some eyes using BYS Glow In The Dark, and dotted on some pupils in Barry M Black.

Unfortunately, after much playing with the settings on my camera, this is the best photo I could get.

Photo fail indeed.  Oh well, you get the idea!

Only two more challenge days left!  Inspired by a tutorial, and then a re-creation of one of our favourite manicures from the challenge :)

Check out all the other (better illuminated) supernatural manicures:

Diana at Nails By Diana
Meredith at Perfectly Polished
Nicole at Nicole Gets Nailed
Shelby at Shelby's Swatches
Stephanie Louise at All Things Beautiful 
Liz and Lisa at Lozlosa 
Mari at Nailista 
Miss L at Beauty by Miss L 
Gini at Sassy Paints 


  1. I really like the concept! I tried something similar, but I wasn't able to capture the glow through my camera at all. Alas!

  2. I can kinda see the eyes. Too bad that your camara failed but it was a great idea!

  3. The idea sounds great! I have the same problem trying to capture glow in the dark nails, it's the same as when I try to take a photo of neon nails under a black light!

  4. Sorry for this fail, that happens a lot to me too with new products, but I like the idea!
