Everywhere you look, ladies have zig-zags on their fingernails thanks to the popularity of chevron manicures like this one from Polish Art Addict. Of course, painting crooked lines that are perfectly straight isn’t easy, so some people turn to professionals to do the job.
That was true for CraftFail reader Rachel (or @CraftFail reader @RachelEkst, as we say on Twitter), who took a photo of her pink and silver manicure inspiration to the salon see if it could be done. Silly question! OF COURSE she can do it – she is a professional, after all.
Except that this lovely lacquer took three tries over the course of two hours, because the salon’s nail stylist was absolutely DETERMINED to get it right. Or, at least keep *trying* to get it right.
Eventually Rachel begged to have her fingers back, ran for freedom, and fixed her nails up herself – in a nice, plain pink.
For more laughs find Robyn at Hollow Tree Ventures, where the closest anyone comes to get a manicure is when the toddler covers her hands in Hello Kitty stickers.
