This was how my nails began before I went overboard! I started with a deep red, and then free handed a brighter red for the tips. This was my first time free handing tips! My nails are more "squoval" than square, so if I use tape for a straight line, it just looks silly for tips.
On top of that, I went ahead and added some red shredded glitter. I bought this from Lacquistry's Etsy shop a while ago, and I've been dying to use it.
As for colors, I used:
- Jordana - Holiday Red
- KleanColor - Red Alert, for the tips
- Lacquistry - Devil's Dandruff
They're a bit crazy, and look a lot deeper in color in person. The shredded glitter is also pretty hard to capture. It looks amazing to me, but the photos don't do it justice!
I'm also trying to learn how to paint better with this challenge, so I didn't go all the way to my cuticles like I normally do. I figure it will be easier to remove each day for a new challenge, and it makes it look much cleaner without having to clean up a lot. Now I look forward to the future challenges!
