My Sad First Attempt at Nail Art

So I ordered some konad supplies and while waiting I got antsy to do some nail art.  I came across this simple three dot design by kittytokaren at Polish or Perish and loved the look of the simple design.  So I decided to give it a try!
Uh this was way harder to do than I thought it would be!  I'm wearing Essie's Your Hut or Mine which is a bit too pink for my tastes but I was wanting a break from all the neutrals and taupes I was wearing recently.  Plus I figure I should give the Resort 2011 polishes a try again.  I should've gone with a red instead of pink.  I feel like this one is a bit too Barbie Pink. The dots are Butter London's Scoundrel.  I am not normally this girly with my nail colors but since I was already sporting a Barbie pink color, I might as well go full out.
Unlike kittytokaren I didn't have any bobby pins handy to use.  After a safety pin fail I ended up using a random mail opener I had from a trip I took as a kid to Niagara Falls.  Now you may wonder why a little girl who went to Niagara Falls came home with a mail opener souvenir and I can't answer that because I have no idea what happened there.
I didn't try using a q-tip contrary to what it looks like in this picture.  That q-tip is leftover from the massive pug wrinkle cleaning session I had earlier tonight.  You don't even want to know the details about that.  Disgusting.  And now my pug is pissed off at me - hence she is not in any of these pictures.

On another note, I am still loving my bracelets and here's a picture from earlier today, pre nail art fail.
But the string bits that stick out at the closure bug me a bit and get tangled.  Argh.
Ok I can't end a post without a picture of my pug!  I mean she is THE lil smug pug.  So here's a couple fairly recent ones that have been sitting in my photo gallery waiting for the right moment to shine.
This is what my lil smug pug would look like if we lived in the olden days and still used polaroids.  See how efficiently and lovingly she slaughters that lil green lamb?  Such a good lil huntress.
