Teal Tuesday: 3D Nail Art

This week's challenge mani didn't go quit as planned.  I wanted to do a french tip now that my nails have grown out.  I already did a teal french design, you can see it HERE.  So I wanted to change it up a bit.  I decided that teal and purple go good together, so why not a purple french tip with teal dots?  Here is why, it just doesn't look good :(  I should have gone with my gut and done a teal french tip.  This what I like to call a Monet.  It looks good from far away, but not up close.  And I am sad the the purple bled a little when I was putting on my top coat.  I love the stars though!  
Here is my Monet LOL

Base Coat:  Rejuvacote
Tips:  Kleancolor Metallic Purple
Dots:  Kleancolor Metallic Aqua
Silver Accent Line:  Orly Dazzle (applied with a small brush)
Star Accents:  Purchased from Sally Beauty Supply
Top Coat:  Seche Vite

Like I said before, I don't love how this one turned out, but maybe it will grow on me.  As of right now, I like to look at it from a far

  1. Wow that is so pretty! I love Kleancolor's metallic polishes they have good formula and so opaque, i'm not a fan with the odor though but still love it. Lovely accent as well.

    1. They are kind of stinky :( But I love them for stamping and french tips. I use the paper reinforcement stickers, so a one coater is best :)

  2. Very cute. I love all the small details!

  3. Not a Monet...beautiful :D So did it finally grow on you?
