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?)
