The Reindeer That NEVER Sleep

Because I rarely sleep, apparently my reindeer look that way too.  When I was taking pictures of this mani, I noticed a few flaws....but really noticed them after opening them in Photoshop. 

Mistakes and fails happen & I've always shown my fail mani's.  Well, the ones I didn't take off immediately.  So, here's my insomniac version of the beautiful reindeer that The Nailasaurus did.  Hers look 1000000000000% better than mine. 

They look so cracked out.  I thought the brown I used was going to be too dark so I used a lighter shade with the black to outline their faces. 

I started out with 2 coats of Deborah Lippmann Naked.  I freehanded the faces with a dotting tool using China Glaze Mahogany Magic.  Then I used a small brush to draw outlines with Essie Sand Tropez and Wet N Wild Black Creme, which were also used for the eyes.  The nose and antlers were done with Black Creme and China Glaze Ruby Pumps for the red nose. 

If you click to enlarge them, you can see LOTS of bubbling and somehow some black strands of something ended up on my middle finger.  I still think they're somewhat cute, but a total fail.
