Oh hi! I hope you're ready for this: I'm doing the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge! The wonderful Sarah at Chalkboard Nails totes talked me into joining in and of course I have to. I'm hoping it'll get me going more into blogging and not just being lazy and posting to instagram. Day 1 is red, so of course it's a case of redding all the reds! Onward!
Since I was to spend the Labor Day long weekend at my friend's cottage, I went with Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Red Eye as a base for all the red glitter I could ferret out of my collection. It didn't actually wear as well as I hoped but I did spend most of the weekend in a lake so I get I can let it off. Anyway, after applying three coats I got to work with my usual cheap top coat and all the red glitter. I started with the largest pieces and filled in my nails, working down in size. Forgive the photos, red is impossible. I topped it off with the Miracle Gel top coat, which is even better than Seche Vite for glitter. It may not dry as fast but it has a much better finish.
The Verdict: I love how these came out, despite the photo issues. They were so sparkly in the sun all day and sparklies = happy Laura. This is day 1 complete, see you tomorrow for Day 2: Orange :D
