Challenge Red-y!

I'm back from a fun 4th of July getaway with friends and starting to get back into the swing of things. Unfortunately, my nails have taken a beating over the said weekend and I had to file them down twice after some major breaks. I'm going to try to pamper them a bit and let them grow out, so in the mean time I'll be sharing swatches and manicures that I managed to prepare before the trip plus a few older manicures sprinkled in. I'll start out today by showing you one from the archives, a matted damask manicure that I really loved...

For this manicure, I used a base of Nicole by OPI Challenge Red-y from the Kellogg's Special K lacquers. I stamped it with the damask pattern from Pueen plate Pueen18 using Wet 'n Wild Black Creme. I absolutely adore these type of damask patterns and I was so happy that this one stamped perfectly...

I matted the mani using Essie Matte About You, giving it a beautiful smooth and velvety look and feel...

Thanks for looking!
