Red kamo….

Hello out there, ready for a laugh? Well she who can’t seem to manage to post once a week is going to attempt the impossible…. 31 day challenge!! Meaning I WILL (okay hope) to post one mani each day this month! Created by Sarah from Chalkboard Nails, I’ve sat by and watched the last 2 years as people have joined in this challenge. So this year I thought, I’d give it a go. Mainly because I spend way too long on a design, so this should be a good way to used the KISS principle  (Keep It Simple Stupid!) and more productive! If you would like to know more about the challenge, Sarah’s post should answer all your questions here.

So onto the nails, for the prompt red somehow I got to thinking of these motorbike pants that I’d seen. Besides I love kamo! I started with a base of OPI “My boyfriend Scales Walls” and randomly blobbed China Glaze “Stone Cold”, Revlon “Silver”,”Revlon Red” and black polish here and there.

I learnt not to be too fussy with this pattern, the bigger it was the better. This is also a good time to try out my new Ciate denim manicure kit that I got cheaply in an online sale. I’ve used the gold water decal stitching and an eyelet.

So overall I’m pretty happy with this, to me it says kamo jeans and day 1 down! Possibly not as simple as I could have made it, so be prepared for stamping and decals.  Help me pray to the nail art gods for strength and more hours in my day! Hope to see lots of you joining in also.
