Worst mani ever hahaha

Last weekend the hubby and I went for a little shopping to Amsterdam again. Actually he needed some clothes shopping and I ofc don`t really mind to tag along. I love A`dam!! The fact that I was there not even a month ago, spending my money on Koh, Lush and more beauty products :) This time I only bought 2 new eye shadow palettes from MAC, soap and shampoo bar from Lush and a jeans at H&M.

As being a member of Douglas I receive their monthly magazine. It`s always filled with their so called bargains, new products, new ideas and a few coupons as well. Mostly for some samples of perfumes. This time it had a coupon inlcuded which would give you a little consult of hand and nail treament from Herome, and you would be rewarded with a free polish...FREE...I love that ;)

The first Douglas-shop I set my eyes on we just had to enter. Lady who helped me was extremely friendly...yet I wonder if she knew what she was doing. It was day 3 of the 4 days available for using the coupon, so the choise of polishes was quite limited to my opinion. I do wodner if they even had a wider range available, casue the look of the bottles didn`t match the one I already own. I picked out a nice subtle color with a little shimmer in it. I thought it would be perfect as a base for some heavy Konadaction or perhaps if I would be fed up with it I can use it for some frankening. So the sweet lady began her routine...filing nails..aargghh way to short :S..massage with handcream, cuticle oil, then the basecoat...I would always clean up my nails from greasyness before I apply any polish, but hey it was a free manicure and I thought she would know what to do. After the basecoat, she`d applied "my"  polish and a topcoat to seal it all in :) Which all resulted after 30minutes f leaving the shop into this;


Look at all the bubbles :S It didn`t dry at all, by the time I bought some nice things at Lush and had to reach for my wallet and stuff it was all ruined :S But I couldn`t tell her she was doing it all wrong, cause she was so sweet and really took the time for me. The color is 82 Cracasas btw.

oh wow - that is the *worst* bubbling I have ever seen - when I saw the pic in my reader I thought it was some fancy layering technique!!

Steffie said...

Wow that really is bad. What kind of topcoat did she use? More bubbles than a glass of champagne.

As it was sponsored by "Herome" a dutch brand...which actually has amazing good quality products,all products used were from this brand, the outcome of the mani was just a little sad :) ( Koh is also from Herome )

Wow! That was a bit of a disaster, sucks because the colour actually looks like it would of been really nice!

The colour is gorgeous, but bubbling polish is not :(
If you try a gold glitter top coat, it might look better.

Oh my...What did she do? :/ I really hate when I saw ONE bubble and there is at at least one million bubbles. :D That fish Bubbles from Nemo would start now: "Bubbbbbles, bubbbles, bubbbles" and go crazy. :D
I love the name of the post, I started laughing even without reading your post. :D

haha and the worst part actually..I couldn`t get mad or angry. The woman was soo friendly, she was really trying her best :) It just ended a bit weird.

I guess I didn't read my last Douglas magazine very well as I didn't notice this coupon...

My goodness, that mani looks absolutely awful!
