Challenge Fail - Hand in Hand

COMMENTS: This was supposed to be my entry for Polish Hoarder Disorder's challenge of the week. I chose to use little hand stencils and brown as my accent color. If it had stayed crisp, it would have been super cute - like little pictures of my hands with a mani. From afar, it looks fine, but close up, you can see that the topcoat made the color bleed. I tried five different topcoats on my right hand, and they all messed up the brown! 
What have I learned? I think next time I need to topcoat the accent color while I still have the stencil on.
Base - two coats of Sally Hansen -White Tip
Hands - Kleancolor - Cappuchino
Mini-Mani - White Tip again with accent nail of Tropez - Black Satin.

Cute idea, right?  Well my hubby thinks so!
