I'll tell you what, this was a lot harder than I imagined it would be! But I persisted, and I finally picked OPI Red Lights Ahead...Where? From the Holland collection as my favorite red.
Of course, since I'm doing the nail art challenge, I added a little something extra.
I started out with a base of Milani White on the Spot and stamped the houndstooth design with BM19 using Wet N Wild Ebony Hates Chris. I taped off the area that I didn't want the houndstooth design.
Then, after I used some nail polish remover to take off the white that the tape destroyed I painted two coats of the ever so lovely OPI Red Lights Ahead...Where? Also I added a black line to cover up where the red met the white. Followed by Revlon Colorstay topcoat (which I hate. So you might see some smearing, and the red splotch on my pinkie. And my bottle of topcoat is now pink.Ugh.)
I decided that one color isn't enough, and I wanted to show you my other favorite reds!
Red usually isn't a color I wear very often but I love these colors. What are your favorite reds? How many reds do you own? Do you like to wear houndstooth on your nails?
Until next time my loves! Tomorrow is orange! Stay tuned!
In the meantime...check out the other lovlies that did this challenge!
