30 Day Challenge Day 1: Red (Cherry Print)

Time to start the 30 day challenge (scroll down to see the upcoming challenges)! Because I just don't have the time to do a new design every day, plus I feel like it's sad to take off a design so quickly, I will be doing a new design every week.
I saw this tutorial on pinterest a while back and knew I had to try it. I love cherry print. Always have. I have blankets, pillows, shirts, swim suits, and more in cherry print. I don't know why, it just makes me happy. Anyway, I think it turned out relatively well. It didn't take too long, either. 

Picture time!

Check back next week for the Day 2 challenge

Cool Dots

I was planning on starting the 31 day nail challenge this week, but I decided to push it back a few days. I just got my new dotting tools and seche vite this past week and wanted to try them out. Chalkboard Nails is having a nail art contest where you create a design using only cool or warm colors. I just bought this pretty new polish- Sally Hansen's Xtreme Wear Mint Sorbet. I decided it would be a lovely base color for a cool tone flower design made up entirely of dots. I'm still getting used to the different dotting sizes, but I think these turned out pretty good for my first attempt. Commence many pictures!
