Summer Challenge: Day 48 - Cocktails

I am renaming this challenge: Drunkin' Cocktails!  Why do you ask....because my design looks like I was partaking of the cocktails while I was doing my nails!

As we all know, it started out with a fantastic idea in my head.  I was completely wowed with the idea I came up with, people would be impressed, yes, ego got a little big there.  It started out really good and then took an immediate turn towards the bad.

The first thing I wanted to do was create a cocktail on my nails.  I wanted this to be the close-up of what the cocktail would look like.  I applied 2 coats of Sally Hansen Mint Sorbet.

Next, I sponged Sally Hansen Mellow Yellow, to create the gradient. I was totally in love with this gradient! The colors were perfect!

Here is where things went bad.  I took out my black and silver Sharpie to draw my cocktail glasses.  I think they just look wrong and then my top coat, NYC, smeared my ring finger.  My hand was shaking so bad that I couldn't get the nice thin lines I wanted.  So...Drunkin' Cocktails!
