31 Day Nail Art Challenge: Red Nails

I saw a bunch of amazing nail art in the last month from lovely nail bloggers all over the world. They participated in the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge. I wanted to give it a go, but I decided to wait until October so that I could add my own twist. I will do each challenge, but make each one Halloween themed. Because of course, Halloween is the raddest, most awesome-est holiday EVAR! Let the fun begin:

I used a red polish I got on sale at Ulta for this design. And to make it Halloweeny, I added fangs! You will also notice that I changed the font on my pictures a bit. Isn't October the best month?!?!

Here's the base polish: Borghese Rapido Fast Dry Nail Lacquer in the Rosso shade. I got it for half off at Ulta. Normally Borghese polishes seem kind of boring to me, but I do like this va va voom red. And this was not a very quick drying polish, but gave pretty good coverage in two coats.

For this manicure I used: Borghese Rapido Fast Dry Nail Lacquer in Rosso, Essie All In One Basecoat, and Revlon Quick Dry Top Coat. I also used black and white acrylic paint for the fangs.

One cool thing about this shade, it almost perfectly matches my scooter! Va va voom!

Here's the categories for the daily nail art challenge. Tomorrow: ORANGE! Will I do pumpkins? Evil Carrots? Come back tomorrow to find out. :)


  1. Oh gosh, I hope you do evil carrots. :D

  2. Your manis are always so cool, so I can't wait for the next ones. :)

  3. I love Halloween too! Good luck with the challenge! I love that you are doing it Halloween style!

  4. Thanks Sarah! I probably should have done evil carrots. I wonder how I can fit them in...

  5. Thanks Misaya! Evil carrots wil definitely have to make an appearance. :)

  6. Thanks Amy! Halloween is a great theme, there is so much to work with!
