Chinoise Variation Part 2 = One Hot Mess

So for my second variation on this same theme, I decided to try Erika's at Chloe's Nails Funky French. I just love her designs so much that I decided to try my hand at it.  Believe me it is way harder than it looks.  I'm sure with practice, it would get easier.  But the scotch tape method ain't easy.

This being my first try, it looks awful.  There are so many layers of polish now, that you can visibly see the thickness. So not attractive.  My lines are not straight and I think my tips are way too thick.  I need to rethink my method of madness here.  I used Essie Loophole for my tips.  The other colors are listed in my previous two posts.

Please don't be mad at my attempt, Erika-as you know, imitation is the best form of flattery! Of course, I will always bow to you, the master.

I don't like this look at all.  I don't like the color combination.  I'm just not sure that nail art is for me.  I do really like the Funky French and definately want to try that again.  I already have several ideas in my head.  But there is just too much going on in this mani for its own good.

I'm embarrassed to show you my amateur attempt, but it is what it is. Sunday I'll be back with my usual over analytical take on things.  Maybe I should just stick to what I know-one color at a time.
