31DC2013 Day 1; Red arrow funky french

Hi, I kinda just decided that I wanted to participate in The 31 Day Challenge by Chalkboard Nails which happens to be one of my favorite bloggers. I missed the actual starting date which normally is on the 1st of September but I figured that it wouldn't matter that much. The reasons why I wanted to participate (except that I've wanted to do it before) are that I was forced to heavily shorten my nails and also that they just before I broke a bunch of them to the flesh also got extremely stained and therefore needed some extra push to keep my creativity. I've been been a bit down due to this a couple of weeks and they're still short (to be me) but I still wanted to challenge my self to try pulling this of. I'm not sure I'll manage to make one post each day but that's my ambition, however some theme days I might do double post or delay this challenge due to lack of time. That's the background story and this will be my day no.1 in this challenge. Everyone is free to join and the rules aren't any, just to "follow" the image below.

I wanted to start by doing something simple and ended up with a high funky french; the arrow style or what ever you'd like to call it. The red I'm using is a favorite amongst so many nail polish lovers, however I'm left pretty much untouched, I don't even own it, this is my moms polish and I'm not planning of buying one of my own. The nail art it self I really liked though and I'd love to wear it again.







 Polishes used:
China Glaze - Ruby Pumps
Maybelline - DA051
Jordana Pop Art - Black Mark


Hope you liked this and are up for an orange nail art tomorrow.

  3. Jättesnyggt! Vilken rolig utmaning. Fast tidskrävande med nailart varje dag ... Och dina naglar ser ju inte korta ut precis *s*.

    1. Tack! Ja, nog är det tidskrävande men ska se till att ligga lite före, gör en nail art på morgonen och byter på kvällen så ligger man en dag före så slipper man stressa. Och JA...de ser inte alls korta ut på bilden så jag vet inte varför jag gnäller!? De kändes väl korta när jag klippte bort 5mm men blev ju ganska mycket kvar.. Har haft samma lack i 1,5 halv vecka och ha nog inte tänkt på att de faktiskt var långa och tom kanske växt på sig sen jag klippte.

    1. Thank you! :D I'll hope something cool will come up from this, especially since I don't have that long time to come up with ideas and then create them! :D
      Haha, yea, from the start I figured that I'd be alone being not a fan. However I stand for my principles, I can't start liking a polish just because I'm the only one who don't. :D
