31 Days Nail Art Challenge - Day 2: Orange


I liked my Red Nails so much that I kept them on for a week!

Then it was time for the Orange nails. A few days ago I got the China Glaze Anchors Away mini bottles, and it included Life Preserver, a really nice orange that looked familiar. When I looked through my collection I noticed it looked very similar to my OPI Call Me Gwen-Ever; and they are indeed almost the same.

The photos don't do them justice and no matter what I did they looked much darker and more saturated in photos than in real life. I painted my left hand nails with OPI and my right hand nails with China Glaze. I kept them on for a couple of days before adding a gold glitter tip.

Let's have a look at the photos:

China Glaze With Glitter Tips

I found the glitter tips to be kind of sharp even though I really like the way they look. So I wouldn't be keeping them on for long.

Next in line is YELLOW nails!

31 Days Nail Art Challenge - Day 1: Red

Hello Blog Land,

As promised this is the first day of the nail art challenge and I have to say, it took me a while to decide what to do. Of all the colors in my polish collection, I only have maybe 5 red polishes! I was so surprised when I noticed that.

Anyways, here is today's nails:

Indoor - No Flash
Outside - Sunlight
I used the taping method and 3 of my reds. The 2 lighter reds are from nameless bottles and the tips are China Glaze Prey Tell.

Then I felt it was missing something (maybe those striping tapes I've been eying on eBay?) so I used nail stickers I had and this is what my nails look like now:

Indoor - Sunlight
 I really like the way these turned out, and looking forward to tomorrow's ORANGE nails!

What about you? What do your favorite red nails look like?

31 Days Nail Art Challenge

Hey Everyone,

For a while now I have been thinking of starting the 31 days nail art challenge, and now I finally have the proper time to do it! For those of you  not familiar with this challenge, this is it:

Basically, it's a list of themes put together by someone to use as inspiration for nail art. How it is interpreted is totally up to to every individual taking up the challenge.

For those of us into nail art, it is so easy to start finding it difficult to decide what to do with our nails and what color to paint them! It was only a few days ago when in one sitting I pained my nails 5 different times because it was so hard to choose. So I hope this challenge helps inspire me and maybe it will inspire you as well!

Tomorrow's post will be... RED Nails!
