For my "red" I started with two coats of Shimmer Marilyn. I should have done three I think - it looks less opaque in photos than it does in real life. Once dry I applied Esmaltes da Kelly Orange Sunset along the sides of my middle and ring fingers. I added a coat of KB Shimmer Clearly on Top and while still wet, I applied various sized stones and studs in shades of gold.
And we're off! 1 day down - 30 to go lol! If you are doing the challenge as well don't forget to use the hashtag #31DC2014 when you post your looks to social media!
