Apologies, I am a little behind with writing my posts up, so you're going to get a triple whammy of 31DC today!
First up we have Red Base, Rather than use a plain polish, I wanted to do something a little different. I've always loved THIS mani from The Nailasaurus, so that's what I went for.
The mani involves starting with a colour, and then diluting it as you move up the nail until it tapers off. I wanted to do mine slightly differently and fade in and out with the intensity.
I used Barry M Almond as my base and OPI I'm In A Holidaze as my red, and everything was going really well - until the phone rang. It wasn't a good news call, and I wasn't as invested in the mani when I returned, so I'm definitely going to have to try this one again sometime. Currently, it's a little lumpy for my liking and I'd like to get the ebb and flow a little smoother.
