The vision I had in my head was sooo much better than this. :( That's why I'm calling this take 1.
I had an idea to create a dahlia looking manicure by pushing the polish around a bit. While this is definitely unique, it isn't quite what I was shooting for. I had an idea for another way to try to achieve the look I want. So stay tuned for take 2 coming soon.
Unsuccessful execution aside, what do you think of textured nails? They're difficult to photograph, I'll tell you that. The light reflects is odd ways and the camera has a hard time focusing. I'm generally a fan of the super smooth, glassy look, but I'm liking this fresh spin on things.
