31 Day Nail Art Challenge: Day 1 - Red

I am so excited (and nervous all at the same time!)... Today is day one, of what I'm sure will prove to be a very tough 31 days... but I am determined to complete this challenge! I think it will be good for me! The challenge is the brain-child of Painting Outside the Lines, who is hosting this challenge. Below is the overview of the challenge...

Being the controlling, overly-organized, OCD person that I am, I have obviously already planned out (right down to the polish colors I will be using) what I am doing for all 31 days. I can't help myself, I'm a sick woman lol...

I kept today simple, I have a lot to do over the next 31 days, and didn't want to pull out all the stops on day one!! Without further ado, here are my nails today:

This is Barielle's Elle's Spell (3 coats) with five lovely, black rhinestones placed on the ring finger. I know, this one is a bit boring... but I discovered I do not have a lot of reds in my collection, and felt very limited by my choices. While this is a beautiful flaky polish, it is a bit too much to stamp on or do any striping, because so much was already going on!

Alas, it is beautiful... and I promise tomorrow (and the next day, and the next day... you get the point!) will be much more exciting so stay tuned!

Be sure to head over to Painting Outside the Lines Facebook and check out the other entrants!!

Will you be joining in on the fun??


  1. I've never seen that color before... very pretty!

    When I recently organized all my polish by colors, I discovered the same problem- for me, it was reds and yellows that were severely lacking... I think I had 2-3 of each and that was it (and I've only recently started getting a lot more into polish, so I have about 160 bottles right now- which makes those numbers really low)! So I've been trying to push myself to grab a few more of those color families when I'm out now.

    1. I have around 100 (I'm afraid if I count my hubby will ask how many I have... I don't think he really wants to know lol)... and have lots of everything but red! haha... my purples are lacking a bit too, which is shocking because I love purple and it looks good on me!

      I will have to make myself put the blue and green polishes down and pick up some other colors :p

      Thanks for reading!!

  2. Very pretty! I'm doing this too and I think I've decided to just keep it simple for the first 6 days...there's so much coming I don't want to wear myself out!

    1. I get a bit more complicated after this, but I know the inspiration section is going to be tough and I don't want to burn myself out! Hahaha

      Good luck with the challenge! :D
