31 Day Challenge, day 1: Red


That's right! I'm finally doing the 31 Day Challange! The task for day 1 is to make red nails and this is my attempt. Okay, so it's just as much grey as it is red. :-P But I decided to allow myself to have a little bit of freedom with this challenge, hope that's okay! ;-) For this simple fifty-fifty tape mani I started with a sexy red basecolor, #85 from Hema (a Dutch department store). When that had dried, I covered half of each nail with tape and painted the other half with a thin layer of China Glaze Concrete Catwalk and Tinsel Town. After removing the tape again, this is the end result; vampy and sparkly, can't say no to that! ^^
Because I'd like to enjoy the results of each challenge for more than just a day, I'm going to have to cheat a tiny bit with the original schedule of a challenge a day. As a compromise I promise to work twice as hard on each little project. ;-) Thank you for reading!

  14. I like that take on red :)
    I'm running this challenge at the moment with a bunch of other Danish girls, and we do this challenge every other day instead of every day. It works great for me :)

    I'm doing the Challenge as well, but i don't do it day by day ^^ i'm too lazy for that. Now i don't have a regular schedule for it. But it's fun anyway. For the challenge i did yellow nails for the first time in years XD

  19. this is gorgeous! one of the best mani's i've seen you do and it's so simple too!!

  20. As I started reading this I was thinking, "But to have to take off a beautiful mani every day - that would be the hardest part!" So I'm glad that you've loosened the rules. :)

    Love this look, can't wait to see the rest!
