15 Day Nail Challenge (Day 9) : Red Nails

So here we go once again for Makeup Savvy's 15 day nail challenge and today we've got red nails ! I've never really been in to plain red nails, or red nails full stop, I never could understand all these girls who would jsut wear plain red because it looked "sophisticated". I usually only use red for nail art, but nonetheless, I've included two whole red nails in today's manicure !

I saw this colour combination in a manicure by Hey Nice Nails and instantly fell in love (it's been saved on my iPad in my inspiration folder for months now) ! I fancied something quick and not too time consuming for today's red nails and so dots was the way to go ! I really like how this design turned out, and I love the accent nails, simple and subtle but they still stand out.

For this design I used OPI Big Apple Red and OPI Did You 'Ear About Van Gogh ? and then just a dotting tool for the dots ! I love how versatile dotting tools can be, not just for making dots and spots on your design, but I also used my pack of 5 dotting tools instead of a nail art brush for ages !

So there we are for today's post ! The theme for tomorrow is "gradient" and I know exactly what I'm going to be doing ! Stay tuned and come back tomorrow for more nail art ! Enjoy your day !
