31 Day Challenge - Day 1: Red Nails

Monday, September 02, 2013
I haven't posted much nail art this past month and I am determined to start posting more, so I decided I would try the #31DC2013 31 Day Challenge by Chalkboard Nails.  Hopefully I can stick to it and get as many done as I can (or all of them, if possible!), so I'm going to try my best.  This is my first monthly challenge ever!

As you can see, Day 1 is Red Nails!  I love wearing red on my nails.  It's so flattering and always makes me happy.  I had a bunch of recently accquired reds to try, so I brought out a few that I was in the mood for.  One of my choices was a Liquid Sand by OPI from the Minnie Mouse Collection, Magazine Cover Mouse.  I used it on my accent nail and I am seriously in love with it.  One coat was fully opaque, and it's so gorgeous and sparkly.  

The remaining nails have a gradient of Enchanted Polish J'adore and China Glaze Snap My Dragon.  They both have a lovely shimmer that pair well together.  Snap My Dragon is a pink-toned red, so all of the photos came out a lot more pink than it actually looks in real life.

On top, I used OPI Royal Rajah Ruby and a base coat by Finger Paints I had sitting around for a watermarble.  The base coat actually worked really well in the water; I was impressed!
