31 Day Challenge: Red

It’s day one of the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge and yay me, I made it! One down, 30 more to go… oh dear…

So for today’s prompt (red), I decided to ease myself in and do something simple. So here’s some heart french tips with a Commes des Garcons heart as the accent nail.

Colors used: Essie Blanc, Essie Snap Happy and Essie Licorice.

To do the heart french, just follow my Talonted Tips tutorial here. For the CDG heart logo, use a thin nail art brush and paint two slanted, pointed ovals and use a dotting tool for the pupils. The great thing about the CDG heart is that it’s not supposed to be perfect, but you do need to get those slanted and pointed eyes. Easy peasy right?

If you’re participating in the challenge, comment below with a link to your mani! I’d love to see.
