Nail Art - Take Two / Drip Mani

So I was browsing my blog list the other day and ran across this amazing "Drip Mani" on Do Not Refreeze and she made it look SO EASY! Well, I should know better. I keep trying "nail art" and I keep failing. But I'm nothing if not stubborn. *grin*

To see what it's SUPPOSED to look like, check it out here.

Here's my first attempt. (Don't LAUGH!)

Random lavender polish first...I started out pretty good!

Then comes the dripping part. I didn't do so well here. It's where it all started to go wrong. Random green.

See, I've already got "goopy" going on.

And the final "drip" part is with Orly Wild Wisteria.

It's not the WORST attempt at "nail art" I've tried so far, but I'm not ready to say #winning yet.

What do you think? Will you try it?  Love the look if I can get it to improve on my next try. I'm not giving up yet!

If you enjoyed this post, please take a second to "like" it! Thanks!


  1. You did better than I would have! That's really not a bad attempt though!

  2. I love the purple/green combo you used! I have been wanting to try this for ages but figured I would mess it up like all other nail art attempts. LOL I think it is great, it doesn't have to be perfect, it is supposed to look a little messy.

  3. Here's a different take on the dripping look. I didn't do this but I follow the blog that did. But I love yours. I think it's a much better job then you give yourself credit for. :)

  4. it *looks* the same :) just more goopy.. maybe do a mixture with like thinner for the top layers?
    btw what is that base colour? *_*

  5. I think this is pretty darn good for a first attempt!

    Your colour scheme is gorgeous.

  6. I agree with Amanda - this is a very good first attempt! I wasn't crazy about the green you used, but with the purple on top it looks great. :)

  7. I can't do these, either. I think I tried once on one nail and gave up. I do love the colors you chose!

  8. This is so cute!! :D Great colour combination too!

  9. I think its great! You almost got it...I've would of done much much worst lol.
    Thanks for sharing the link, I didnt know that blog, look interesting!
