The Neverending Pile Challenge: Ugliest Polish

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme in the Neverending Pile Challenge is your ugliest polish. Again, I had trouble choosing because I didn’t really find any of them that ugly. In the end I chose this one because the base is a pretty traditionally ‘ugly’ colour so I thought it’d be appropriate. swatch_born_pretty_store_kr_yogurt_series_003The polish I used was KR Yogurt Series #003, from the Born Pretty Store. I was concerned that the jelly base might not build up to opacity well so I started with a base coat of Tip Top We Have An Agreen Mint, but that probably wasn’t necessary in the end. I added 4 coats of the KR polish, but 2 would have probably already been fine with the base colour below it – I just kept going because I really wanted to get a lot of the glitter. swatch_born_pretty_store_kr_yogurt_series_003Despite this being a stereotypically ‘ugly’ colour, I really like it, and I think the colours of the glitter work really well with it too. swatch_born_pretty_store_kr_yogurt_series_003I think this polish is almost like a pond mani in a bottle – the colour is like a algae-filled pond and the glitter adds leaves and flowers floating inside it. swatch_born_pretty_store_kr_yogurt_series_003I decided this pond-like base was perfect for some frog nail art! cute_frog_acrylic_paint_over_pond_polish_kr_003A couple of weeks ago, I saw this adorable frog nail art on Lucy’s Stash and I knew I wanted to try recreate it. Mine didn’t come out as great as hers, but I think it’s at least a recognisable frog! cute_frog_acrylic_paint_over_pond_polish_kr_003I followed the pictorial Lucie had on her post and used acrylic paint to paint the frog. cute_frog_acrylic_paint_over_pond_polish_kr_003I love frogs! There are some frogs living in an open patch of land next to my boyfriend’s flat and their croaking is always soothing. What do you think of my little frog?cute_frog_acrylic_paint_over_pond_polish_kr_003Take a look at some more ‘ugly’ nail polishes at the link:

      Haha the polish is great hey? I only chose it for ‘ugliest’ because it’s such a stereotypically ugly colour, but I love it 🙂

    Hi, I have just found your blog and followed it.

    In bloglivin I found this and thought “wow, how wonderful” and read this title?! I’m happy I found in the text you don’t find it that ugly 🙂

    The frog is cute. I love frogs too and have made a frog mani myself (only one? Boo. Have to make another one…)
    All the very best from Berlin!
