British Nail Bloggers Colour Me Crazy! Challenge. Week 1 - Red

Greetings All!

Yes, it's true, I'm taking part in my first challenge of the year!! Not bad, considering we're over halfway through it already. I've been taking time off from challenges this year, so that I can just wear what I want to wear on my nails. I did so many challenges last year, it seemed like most of the time I just had 'random challenge nails' on, and no time for the nails I wanted! However I am becoming something of a recluse, so it's time to join in with something.

Thanks to Kerrie for putting this all together. 

This is the schedule - one manicure a week, for the next twelve weeks. Surely even I can manage that?!

I already have an orange and yellow manicure in the vault, so all I really had to worry about was a red manicure. As red is one of my favourite colours, this should have been easy. Could I find any inspiration anywhere? No. As the deadline approached, I started to feel pressured, because I couldn't think of anything to do, and I knew that if I missed this prompt, chances are I just wouldn't bother with the rest of the challenge. I'm an all or nothing kind of girl.

At times like these, I reach for my favourite stamping image and just use that. As it is my favourite, I always think every manicure using it looks awesome!

It's not super exciting, but I got it done, so I'm still taking that as a small victory!

For my base I dug out a lovely red I haven't used in ages, Collection Big Hair. I guess this is a coral red, but I always think of it as peppery, or paprika! Either way, it's a lovely shade, and a bit different from th Sally Hansen Right Said Red I always seem to wear! I then stamped with Konad Black and DRK-B.

Next week's Orange nails are sat ready and waiting, as are Yellow. So I have plenty of time to work on Green!


I love it when you awesome people leave comments! I read and treasure them all, and I'll always respond to a question as soon as I can.
