31 Day Challenge! Day 1- Red Nails

Hi loves!!!

  So today starts the 31 Day Challenge here at LTHP. Like I said yesterday the lovely Sam and Rie will be joining me and together we shall conquer this beast of a challenge! Don't forget to stop by their blogs as well to see what they've come up with!!

  So day One is Red Nails and this is my look.
 So I started with a base of Three coats of China Glaze Phat Santa. Then to give it some texture I stamped using Konad plate M57 with China Glaze Long Kiss. I wanted a little bit of sparkle so I sponged just the smallest bit of Orly Star Spangled on the tips.

  Here is a swatch of my base color Phat Santa. This is my favorite Red ever. It's not too bright or too vampy. IDK what it is but it's just the perfect Red shade for my skin tone I guess. I also love the formula on this color and how smoothly it glides. This is Three coats and no top coat.

  I <3<3<3 this so hard!!!
I'm really excited for this challenege and I know doing it with the support of two of my favorite bloggers will make it so much more fun!! Make sure to check their blogs out too to see, what are definitely to be, some amazing nails by Rie and Sam!

Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Cris this is lovely! Phat Santa is a hot hot HOT red and it looks killer on your skin tone. And the m57 plate is so incredibly versatile. I have to break it out for this challenge for sure. ^_^

  7. I love the 'secretive' stamping you did in there... so very subtle. I'm a converted "red" shade fanatic now... but don't have this one yet. You're right, it does look perfect against your skintone!

  8. Ooh! This is really cool, Cris. I don't even like reds but Phat Santa is bright and daring and I adore it. A new twist on the glitter sandwich and it's so pretty!

  9. I love how you can just see the hint of design so that the red is the main attraction and not the design. LOVE the color and what you did with it!

  18. Wow, I think I'm in love with Phat Santa. Phat Santa alone is so shiny and lovely-- your nails look like little candies or something! Love. Also love the stamping; subtle but really pretty.
