First day of the 31 Day Challenge! I had been thinking about what designs to do for each, but I hadn’t thought of anything for red before today. So, I went with a simple flower design. The red is Finger Paints Curator’s Crimson, which is slightly darker depending on the lighting. The white is Sinful Colors Snow Me White. For the ring finger, I first painted the nail red, then after it had dried, applied two short strips of nail art tape. Then, I used two coats of the white, and immediately peeled off the tape. As you can probably tell from the photos, it smudged a little. I’ve been trying two new top coats (Sinful Colors Top Shine and Milani Glosse Top Coat), and they both cause nail art to smudge, though they do dry relatively quickly, making them pretty good for simple polished nails.
