Happy Friday sweeties!
For the 20th appointment with the 52 Weeks Nail Art Challenge we have a colour prompt which is Red. Here you can enjoy over 40 nail art designs in this classic shade, are you "red-y"? ;-)
I always think there is no reason to collect red nail polish, because "all reds look the same" right? That is something my eyes say to my mind, until I see a gorgeous red manicure, and, honestly nothing can beat a good red nail polish. It is elegant and feminine, no wonder is a classic!
I did not hesitate much before choosing Zoya Hannah for this challenge, because it is a perfect medium red, super flattering. It may not be the most spectacular out there but you have to admit it has its own allure. Today I ought to combine "red" prompt with my personal technique prompt which is "half and half". My manicure is no brainers, and all I did was painting each nail in two different shades of red. The effect is immediate, it never cease to amaze me how such simple things like a bit of contrast han have such a wonderful effect. So here is a perfect example for those who think they'll love to do a nail design but they don't have time/skills/materials, etc.
For this manicure I first painted three thin coats of Zoya Hannah waited for it to dry, and then applied NYX Dorothy only to one half of each nail. I did not use guides for this mani, and though it is so simple, I really like the outcome!
