Share Your Beauty Mishap Stories!

I had planned to do a Nail of the Day post today, and happily sat down with a brand new polish to try out. When I opened the bottle, I thought the brush was a little unusual, and the formula a little translucent, but persevered anyway…

After letting the ‘first coat’ dry for a good 5 minutes, I tapped my nails lightly to make sure they were ready for coat no.2. I was so annoyed to find that it was still totally liquid, and removed the product from every nail in a huff. It was only when I looked down at the bottle of MeMeMe’s Beat The Blues in Pearl Pink that I realised it was, in fact, a complexion highlighter. Not a nail polish. FAIL!

In my defence, it does look like a nail varnish bottle, doesn’t it?!

It got me thinking about a couple of my other beauty mishaps over the years. I’ve accidentally used shampoo and conditioner the wrong way round on a few occasions (and although it’s meant to work wonders for the hair, mine didn’t like it at all!) and I’ve definitely been guilty of accidentally holding hot styling tools on certain sections of hair too long, leaving me with awkward kinks and straightener marks.

I’d love to hear all about your own beauty mishaps – everyone has a funny story to tell! Leave me a comment just below or send me a tweet. Let’s make each other feel better about our little mishaps…

Stay Creative,

    I didn’t actually go so far as to use it, but I was so tired one night that as I was about to wash my face, I reached for a bottle of shampoo lol. I realized my mistake in time!

    Haha that’s pretty funny. I remember one time I did a full makeup look, colorful eye shadow, winged liner, foundation, bronzer, high light, the works. Later that day I realized I had forgotten to put on mascara out of all things! Thankfully my lashes are pretty dark so I didn’t look too crazy lol.

      It didn’t for me either! I wonder why some people say it’s a great beauty tip? x

    I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve had total mishaps with my eyeliners, I’ve mostly given up with them now and made bad lipstick shade choices but one time my mum was curling my hair for me and accidentally picked up the curling tongs the wrong end!! :-/ Poor mum, thankfully she was fine though.

      Oh no!! Your poor mum! I’ve definitely done that once or twice x
