Cult Nails Nail Art Fails

As you know by now, I entered a nail art contest hosted by and using Cult Nails' nail polish.  The contest ends Jan 22, so go vote now!  The "now" link leads you directly to MY photo and if you click the "like" button below it, then you have just voted for me! Also, you will be in the running for some nail polishes too from Cult Nails, as she is giving one voter 3 of her polishes as a prize!
My water marble that I actually entered but with Hypnotize Me over it.
So enough about that.  Those weren't the only nails I did for the contest. These are the contest FAILS.  
Why do you want to see the failures, you ask?  To laugh, of course!  Everyone has failures (especially me) and we all learn from them! Or at last, most of us do! I think it's also healthy to laugh at ourselves too! 
Feel Me Up, Time Traveler, Hypnotize Me, polish formerly known as Unicorn Puke
I was stuck on the water marbling idea, because-quite frankly-I can't really do nail art, unless copying someone else's idea, and it has to be super duper simple! Water marbling is something I CAN do. Sometimes, I go overboard and here I did it again. I decided to add a french tip to the water marble and I think it took away from the whole thing.
On my other hand, I put a french tip sticker on the vertical and painted one half navy blue (Time Traveler) and then top coated THAT with the polish formerly known as Unicorn Puke.
I liked it in real life, but when I saw the pictures, I thought looked muddled.

So what do you think? Did I choose the right one to submit to the contest or would  you have chosen one of these?
