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!
