Today I feature a "craft fail" and it's not the first (or last) one. I tried the "glitter nails/toes" with Kenzie - she got the nails, I got the toes. Pretty simple - red nail polish, glitter on top while wet and a clear coat after the red paint with glitter dries. It was a great idea I found on a blog (the source of all creativity), but I managed to mess it up. The problem is the glitter - I realized the suggestion to use a special fine glitter wasn't just a suggestion. Now the pedicure on my big toe is scratching my leg whenever the nail touches it. If that's not bad enough, now you get to see my ugly feet:
Kenzie's fingernails were cute, but I'm worried she may wake up tomorrow with scratches on her face from the glitter. (Notice how she made her fingers into a cute heart :)
Lesson learned: If you want the project to turn out EXACTLY the way you expect, follow the directions. If you want to be creative, use the directions as a suggestion, but be prepared for the consequences - good, bad or ugly.
