31 Day Nail Challenge: Day 1 Red Nails


This is my first time doing a nail challenge and I'm both excited and nervous about it! I joined friends Jayne and Naomi who are also doing this awesome challenge. We will be posting every other day so we can enjoy our manis for a couple days before moving on to the next challenge day.

For this mani I used OPI's Cajun Shrimp and Your Web or Mine? I cut triangle-shaped strips from tape before adding Your Web or Mine? I have an old tutorial where I demonstrate how I do this here.


Don't forget to check out Jayne at Cosmetic Proof and Naomi at Bellezza to see their manis for this challenge!

  3. I was staring at the first image for a while trying to decide if the second polish was actually a design or if it was light reflecting on your nail.. haha.
    I love the contrast though, like Jayne said. This challenge sounds so fun, good luck! You guys can do it! (:
    Looking forward to all of the different manis you come up with.
