31DC2014 Day 01: Red - Simple stamping

And so it begins, the 31 Day Challenge for 2014.

This year I'm starting really simple.  Actually I had planned to start with something amazingly awesome, but it was a complete sucky failure.  I attempted the design I wanted to do a total of four times, but when it didn't work after that I gave up - and I don't give up easily!  I'm not going to tell you what I was planning, just in case one day I succeed!  

So after my nail fails I went back to something I knew I could achieve quickly on both hands.  I looked through my red polishes and I saw my swatch stick of Ozotic 518.  This is definitely one of my most red holos and the holo flame is just spectacular!

I didn't want to cover it up too much, so I decided to do very simple stamping from MoYou London Suki 02 plate.  I stamped using Mundo de Unas black polish for the dragon, and a mix of yellow and reddish for the flame.  This will probably be the quickest nail art I will do for the challenge, as I was finished with this whole thing in less then 30 minutes.

  1. Urgh, don't you hate it when you have a great idea and it just doesn't work out. I absolutely love what you did though! The red is breathtaking and it's the perfect stamping. Love it!

  2. The red polish is gorgeous. And I love the dragon :-).

  3. What a gorgeous red holo! The stamping is perfect, as usual. I also hate when I fail a manicure so many times. I often end up by applying a simple creme with a glitter topper. I love your first mani! <3

  4. Very cute, the design works well with the base!

  5. This red is stunning, and I LOVE the dragon! Too cool!
