What is 31DC2014 you ask? (My boyfriend asked). It stands for 31 Day Challenge 2014! For 31 days I will be painting my nails daily, each day a new theme or challenge. The theme list is included in the image below. Several nail art & polish bloggers are tackling this challenge during the month of September and I thought it would be fun to try it out. Wish me luck!
Day 1’s prompt is Red. I decided to kick this challenge off with the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland (Tim Burton style). I thought she would be perfect for red. After all, she did want her roses painted red.
I used of mix of red and burgundy colors for the nails with hearts. I was originally toying with the idea of doing red on red on red for the entire look but decided against it for my accent nail. I love the extra sparkle Cirque Arcane Fire gives to the hearts, it’s subtle and it almost looks like velvet.
Here I am posing with China Glaze Seeing Red. What an appropriate name!
