I tried, I really tried-

I have quite successfully done some needle drag manis, so when it came up for the PFC challenge, I was all, like, "I got this" and all. Big mistake using neons, BIG mistake taking a shortcut- Neons dry quickly, that was the idea for me, BUT they don't give you enough time to drag the needle properly. On top of that, I thought I would be all cute and use a striper brush instead of a needle, AND omit the fresh coat of base before the trim. Bad bad idea. Took a few embarrassed pics as a warning to to you all looking for shortcuts (there are none) then redid my manicure with some bright red/oranges. Live and learn.
