Hello all! Today is the first post of my adventures doing the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge! The first ten posts are all about color and with that I wanted to keep it simple and really let the color shine. Red is not a polish color I have a lot of, and usually don't wear...like ever. Still, I really like what I came up with!
SOPI Betsey Johnson - Pushing Your Luck
Nubar - Ruby Red Glitz
Again, I wanted to do something simple and really show off the color. Striping tape is a great tool for nail art because it is very easy to use, and you can create something really eye catching.
This particular design, is about as easy as it gets. I started with a base of Pushing Your Luck (the only red cream in my collection!), once it was dry, I placed small pieces of striping tape in a random pattern and used an orange stick to make sure they were nice and flat. Next I layered Ruby Red Glitz, peeled off the the tape and finished off with a top coat.
I'm still not sold on the idea of red nails, but I gotta admit, it does look kinda hot. Next up is Orange!
