31DC2014 - Day 1 Red Nails

It's time!!!  Today is the first day of the 31 Day Challenge. Hopping on this roller coaster again...am I nuts? Just a little lol! The first prompt we have is Red Nails. My original idea for this one was super great in my head and not so great in execution so I had to improvise and came up with this design.  var _gaq = _gaq || []; _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-41312601-1']); _gaq.push(['_setDomainName', 'valiantlyvarnished.com']); _gaq.push(['_setAllowLinker', true]); _gaq.push(['_trackPageview']);

(function() { var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true; ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ? 'https://ssl' : 'http://www') + '.google-analytics.com/ga.js'; var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s); })();

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!
