31 Day Nail Art Challenge - Red Nails!

Hi everyone! Starting today Loqi and I will share a post every 2 weeks. It'll be dedicated to the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge! Hopefully you'll enjoy our creations, I can't wait to see how some of the challenges will go... 

Deborah's manicure - Gold and red half moons

The first challenge we had was "Red nails". Now, I had never done a half moon manicure before (and yes, this is also a challenge but now I already know I can do it ;-)) and figured it would combine great with red.

I used 1 coat of Revlon Copper Penny (scored this for €3,- in a bargain store), let it dry for a while, placed a french tip guide sticker (made less sticky by putting it down on my hand first) and used China Glaze With Love for the red part. I used 1 coat and in the pictures it seems a little bet less opaque, but the bling from Copper Penny did add depth to it.

I really LOVED this manicure and will most likely do half moons more now!

Loqi's manicure - China Glaze Foxy, sequined

Hi everybody! I am so excited to start this challenge! Even though we are doing this challenge over a longer period of time I am really hoping to get some new inspiration and am looking forward to seeing Deborah's creations.

Whoo red! You guys know I love me some red nailpolish right? So for day 1 I picked one of my all time favourite polishes: China glaze Foxy (a coppery red shimmer) and combined it with some painstaking labour lol. The sequins come from a jar of mixed red and gold-green glitter (fine and large) and I put them on one by one with a toothpick. I have to admit that I only did an accent nail on my left hand, because it took so long. It was totally worth it tho, pictures cannot show how insanely sparkly this is!

Stay tuned for challenge day 2: orange!

    And good job on the glitter placement Loqi! Looks very time consuming, but it came out awesome!

  9. Thanks babe, I love the mani Loqi did very much but it is way too time consuming for me I think haha!

  10. What i do not understood is in fact how you are no longer actually a lot more smartly-preferred than you might be now.
    You are so intelligent. You realize therefore significantly with regards to this subject, produced me in my opinion consider it from a lot of numerous angles.
    Its like men and women don't seem to be involved until it is something to do with Girl gaga! Your personal stuffs outstanding. At all times take care of it up!

    Here is my blog post: Converse

  11. I have been browsing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion,
    if all webmasters and bloggers made good content
    as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.
