Digital Dozen does Rainbow - star placement

I had such great expectations for this mani, and they weren't realised sadly.  I recall watching a video on Instagram by Sveta Sanders where she used a star shaped nail vinyl on a silicone mat and then placed each individual star onto her nail.  Her video made it look so easy (as everything does for her) so I attempted the same technique and I have to say I had a massive fail.

I filmed it so I will upload my fail to instagram, but to sum it up, after I painstakingly coloured in all the stars using a dotting tool on my silicone mat, when I pulled it off most of the polish had dried and therefore stuck to the vinyl instead of to the mat!  FAIL.

Now other than my middle finger where I placed a line of the stars down my nail, I realised later that I really did create this mani the hard way.  I should have just stuck the vinyl down and the coloured it in on the nail. That way the polish would have stuck to my nail and I wouldn't have wasted two vinyl stickers.  Oh well, I'll chalk that one up to a massive brain explosion.

So this isn't my favourite rainbow mani by a long shot, but I didn't have time to do something else. The base is two coats of Pretty Serious Presence topped with Picture Polish Holo on top.
