#31DC2015 Day 1: Red Nails

And so it begins...Happy first day of the 31DC2015 peeps! The first prompt of the challenge is Red Nails. I knew I wanted to do something with a little gold and some black thrown in but that was the extent of my planning when I sat down to do my nails last night. I have to say that I'm loving the finished product!

Tools used:

MoYou Suki Plate 05

Creative Stamper

Color4nails Crystal Veil

Makeup Sponge

Polishes used:

Zoya Janel (base color)

A-England Holy Grail

Konad Black

KBShimmer Clearly on Top

Steps:

I started with 2 coats of Janel. Once dry, I took a small piece of sponge and light sponged on Holy Grail. I wanted a light dusting of gold - not the full shebang. I then applied Crystal Veil around my cuticles for easy clean up and stamped on my pattern from Suki Plate 05. I finished with a coat of Clearly on Top. 

Like I said earlier in the post, I'm loving how these turned out. I knew my color scheme but didn't have a clear plan when I sat down. It's always great when despite not having a concrete idea I can come up with something I truly like. More often than not the opposite is true and I want to tear my hair out!  I haven't used this stamping plate in ages and I'd forgotten how gorgeous the patterns are! 

Are any of you participating in this year's challenge? Let me know in the comments!
