After years of wanting to jump into this challenge and not feeling ready, I have finally decided to take the plunge - with a caveat. Since my schedule is a bit too hectic to paint my nails daily, I won't actually be completing this in 31 days. However, it will still hopefully serve to inspire new creative nail art and I am super excited! So let's get going... day one is red!
For this challenge I decided to do a fun ladybug manicure - I am in the mood for spring and this was the perfect way to express that on my nails! I started off with two coats of Zoya Tamsen, and then used Zoya Raven and Zoya Purity for the details. I finally got the nail art brushes I ordered quite awhile ago and I was excited to get to try them out! They are definitely easier to work with than the brushes I was using before.
These little guys were super cute and I got an awful lot of comments on them - even from some of my patients, which was fun. It is getting a bit warmer here and almost all of the snow from Snowmageddon 2013 has melted... bring on spring! Although I was not a huge fan of "spring forward" daylight savings time yesterday. Ugh - I much prefer "falling back" in that regard. Anyway, if you want to recreate the look, here is a little tutorial I put together!
Check back Wednesday for Day 2 - Orange!
