The 31 Day Nail Art Challenge 2016: Day 1 - Red

Hello beautiful people!
It has been waaaaay too long, but I've had so many changes in life that have made it difficult to get to the blog. I've been traveling quite a bit, and my charge is getting so big now that it's hard to keep up with her and my nails at times, but it's been so much fun! Life has been really good.
As you know, every September, lots of nail artists participate in the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge, and it is that time again! I had such a blast doing it last year that I had to do it again. What better way to kickstart the return to the blog than a daily challenge?
Here are our prompts for this year. They are the same as last year, and I am so excited to try to come up with new ways to decorate my digits!

For the first day of the challenge, the theme is red, so as I was looking through my new stamps that I had bought over the course of the year, I realized that I had never had the chance to use my Scarlet Witch stamps from Aiyoohehe. Having the red prompt was the perfect opportunity to try them out!
You may notice that I'm in the nub club this year, but I had a nasty couple of nail breaks a weeks ago when I was traveling, so I started over. It was sad because my nails were the longest they'd ever been, but I won't let my little nubs discourage me from doing this challenge. I know a lot of people tell me that they would love to paint their nails and have fun with them, but they won't grow out, but having short nails is no excuse not to experiment. You can rock nubs, and enjoy a little nail art. In fact, that's how I started on my journey of nail arting, and getting my nails in better shape.

Since I had let my nails go a little the last couple of weeks, finally taking care with them, and doing a little nail art was just the thing to perk up my mood. I love painting my nails so much, and it always makes me feel great walking around with a pretty manicure!
Anyway, onto the mani of the day!

For this manicure, I used the following products:

An Affair in Red Square by OPI for the red base
Black stamping polish from Born Pretty
Silver Canvas by OPI for silver stamping accents
Aiyoohehe Super Hero -007 plate

And that's it for today! See you next time with my orange inspired mani.
Have a great day! 😊
