The conversational phrase nice try can be used ironically when someone is trying to cheat you or play a trick on you. For instance.
-"You'll double your money in a month if you invest in this scheme."
-"Hah! Nice try, pal, but I wasn't born yesterday."
-"Tu vas doubler votre argent en un mois si tu investis dans ce plan."
-"Hah ! Bien essayé, mon pote, mais je ne suis pas né de la dernière pluie."
Does bien essayé convey the ironic meaning of nice try?
