31 DAY CHALLENGE -- Day 1 : Red Nails


Hey everyone! Happy November.. which means.. It's time for the beginning of the 31 DAY CHALLENGE! Woooo!!! Be sure to check out Amanda from Mad Manis' posts as well. She'll be completing the challenge with me!

Today's challenge is RED NAILS. I decided to use my 2 favorite red polishes of all time and spice things up with an accent nail. I used 1 coat of Rimmel Fever and 2 coats of ChG Ruby Pumps. My ring finger is 3 coats of Wet N Wild's Behind Closed Doors from the elusive On The Prowl collection.. which is a dupe for Deborah Lippmann's Ruby Red Slippers.

I think this is a gorgeous combo. Fever is the overall perfect red creme, and Ruby Pumps will forever hold a special place in my heart because it was the first bottle of China Glaze that I ever owned. I actually redeemed an Ulta Rewards certificate for it, if truth be told! And of course, Behind Closed Doors is just stunning.

Application with BCD was a little tricky, though. The big hex glitter didn't want to spread evenly on my nail so I kind of had to dab it on. But I still think it looks great!

I'm also creating a tab at the top of my blog so that you can quickly keep track of all my challenge posts! The image of the challenge prompts will be there as well, in case you ever want to know what's coming up next. :)
