Red Nails: 31 Day Challenge
So I decided to try the 31 day challenge. I know a lot of other bloggers have done it and are doing right now. I wanted to partake of the fun too. I don’t know how anyone could post every single day… I think that is amazing and props to anyone that does. So I’m just going to take my sweet time with it. This manicure was done a few days ago but I’ve been so busy with work, interviews, and going away to the Lake for the weekend.
I started with bright red nails and wanted to stamp on them. I wanted a grey stamp and when my man chose China Glaze “Stone Cold” I thought yeah why not… UM… yeah that didn’t work. Like most of you know Stone Cold is a matte polish. Which means it dries in an instant… which equals NO STAMPING. Yeah don’t even try… super frustrating until I figured out duh it’s a matte.
So I figured I’d do something different. I used hole protectors to make a kind of half moon mani on both sides of the nail. My man said, “hey I got an idea.” He then dug through my image plates and came back with some of the Chinese symbols. He wanted to do the stamping and viola… really awesome mani design. I told him that they look like Chinese lanterns.
