Blogger Bragger Autumn Nail Art Challenge, Week 1-Red

I’m baaaack!!

Whew, it took a lot longer than I expected to get settled into this tiny little dorm room.  And I’m not actually fully settled yet, since my polishes are covering my desk, but I thought that I have been away for long enough.  I am back today with a new challenge: the Blogger Bragger Autumn Nail Art Challenge.  It stretches across October, November, and December, and offers up a weekly color prompt that must be completed by that week’s Saturday.  Sounds fun to me!

Because I’m not fully organized just yet, I thought it would be best to ease into things with some fairly simple nail art.  Anyone who knows me knows that that means dots.

So I searched through my reds, and found a little Kleancolor gem called Jewelry Red.  I had no idea that I even owned a red like this.  It’s gorgeous!  And I don’t even usually like reds!  My problem here though was finding a polish that would go well with it.  I wanted to stick with traditional autumn colors–since, ya know, autumn challenge–but that meant a brown, orange, or yellow/gold.  I don’t buy a whole lot of those colors, so my choices were limited.  I finally decided on Kleancolor Gold Bright.  Good choice?  I think so.

It doesn’t show quite so much in these pictures, but I guess there was some red on my top coat’s brush or something, because red was smeared on top of the gold.  I couldn’t even get mad about it, because the orange tint that was made looks better than the straight up gold.  The dots are not my best, but I forgive myself since it’s been a while since I have done orderly dots.  (Why do I keep doing them even though they frustrate me so?)
