Red Week on Fire!

Here we are at Day 4 of Red Week.
You know...red is my least favorite polish color. I love red, I'm just not into red nails so much. Kinda like red lipstick, I think it's got it's place in the world and even on me, but just very rarely!
With that said, this week has been a struggle for me finding the few reds I have and making them into something I can tolerate.
I have been seeing a lot of cool needle drag/marble designs lately and wanted to give it a whirl.
I don't think this is great, but I think it's decent, in that it comes across how I intended!
Hopefully!
Here we goooooo!


Seeing these photos reminds me of another reason I dislike red, it is SO HARD to cleanup. It leaves a ton of residue and color behind!


Black base - swirled in red, orange and yellow (Red was by The Balm, Orange is Citrine by Sinful Colors and Yellow is Hampstead Gardens by Nails Inc)


Check out these ladies rockin' their reds this week:

  1. Wow this is like the exact opposite of me. I love red! It's not my favorite color but it's up there. What I can't stand is red lipstick. No matter what tone or color I find I look like a tramp. Yup I said it a tramp and let me tell you it's not a good look on me ;) Can you shoot me a little message with your favorite colors? I think they are teals, greys? but I'm not sure...btw I love the flames!
