This Sunday we are challenged to do a "Black and Red" stamping nail art and I have to say I wasn't really feeling like dark colors but I didn't have any other ideas of what I wanted to do with my nails so I'm doing it!
I picked the lightest red I had and that is Finger Paints "Vermillions Painting" It is more of an orangish red and shhh I used it as an orange before when I was challenged to use and orange over at the Purple Crumpet Fairy Challenge.
Not my favorite and probably won't keep this design on for more then a couple hours. I'm just not feeling it today.

Coat 2: This is all you need with this polish. It has a foil look, not completely smooth but I like it
I printed of some waterslide decals for the Olympic rings, one of the mascots and the London 2012 logo. Thanks so much Christie for inspiring me to make my own decals!! I LOVE them, they are so easy to do, its hard to get the paper here but its worth the effort. For my ring and index finger I tried a million different things and by this time I was so tired my eyes were hurting so I made arches that look better in person then in the photo. I used Nails Chic Nail art pens which I only have a few colors of but they are awesome and I want more as mine are getting used up very quickly. I only did my one hand as I needed my nails clear for this weekend as I have other plans for them.

However, my choices in polishes together is a fail!! The two colors I chose were not contrasting enough to make the silver or green pop. They just blended in together and instead of the WOW!!! I imagined it was a MEH....

On with the details
- China Glaze Sun Kissed
- Nicole by OPI Make a Comet-Ment
- And some stickers
- I didn't top coat this one and after 24 hours I have only have a little itty bit of tip wear which is expected from being on the computer most of the day ;)
Here is the Design I did. Please excuse the picture, it is horrible. I took it with my cell phone as my other camera was put away. I don't have a point and shoot I just have a DSLR (I'm a photographer) and it is too much work to get it out and set up the tripod, because it is too heavy to hold with one hand (I have really weak wrists and holding the camera is two handed for me) Anyways I am rambling..... I will play around with the cell phone, I think it is on the fritz anyways...(yay I might talk Ryan into an iPhone heheh)

First I would like to say I am a horrible blogger!! I need to work on my blogging skills and get better so someone will actually be interested in what I have to say, I would also like to apologise for my nails, they are not very pretty but I'm working on it. Anyways on to my post ...
I am part of a group on Facebook called The Purple Crumpet Fairy Challenge . This is an amazing group who participate in nail art challenges. I admit I've been slacking as I have been feeling awful this past week but I need to push through and do all the normal things that make me feel good. My thoughtful Husband got me this cute card and a bottle of polish he picked up while he was out and surprised me. Even though my feeling awfulness is caused from my anxiety disorder and I am having a bad go this past week, the card is still awesome! The polish is Nicole By OPI-Wear Something Spar-Kylie. Thanks baby!!

I had a bad anxiety attack last night and when they are really bad I tend to leave a path of destruction. I was grabbing the mattress and ripping at it and ripped off half my nail. so much for making my nails pretty for the next month or using any polish strips, I can only do nine nails
