31 Day Challenge: Day 1

Hello Lovelies!!! As you can see from the title of this post, I am participating in the 31 Day Nail Challenge and today is Day 1. This challenge is lead by Sarah at Chalkboard Nails. There are SO MANY talented bloggers, IG'ers, nail artists, and nail polish addicts that have joined in. So here I am! In the interest of full disclosure, I am NOT  nail artist (I'm sure my previous posts have made that obvious) and I doubt that I will successfully complete this challenge! LOL! However, I think it will be fun, an opportunity to push my limits, and afford me the ability to network and interact with other ladies in the nail community.

Here is the challenge that we are attempting to tackle!


If you would like to participate, come on down! The more, the merrier. More information and this image (and others) can be found on Sarah's blog post HERE.

As you can see, Day 1's challenge is for Red Nails. I realized I have this beautiful bright red jelly with holographic shimmer by piCture pOlish that I had never used, so I went with it. O'Hara is absolutely stunning, as it shines bright and sparkles all the same! I used 2 coats and no topcoat for the following photos.


It is amazing how this sparkles and there is absolutely NO GLITTER!!!

Although I LOVE this shade alone, I am determined to use this challenge to do a little nail art when I can. Well...my idea of nail art! Ha!!

Next, I added a silver accent nail on my middle finger using piCture pOlish Heavy Metal. This is one of their Mesh shades. It has very densely packed fine silver glitter in a gunmetal colored base. I used 2 coats and topcoat.

Next, I created another accent nail on my ring finger by creating multiple sized dots using piCture pOlish White Wedding and Heavy Metal over O'Hara.

To complete the look, I added gunmetal studs from Pueen Cosmetics to my ring and pinky fingers.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the way this turned out!

I really hope you like my creation for the 31 Day Nail Challenge Red Nails!!!

Happy Sunday!
