31 Day Challenge | Day 1 | Red

Press Sample
Hey there sweeties! So it's September first which means it's day one of the famous 31 Day Challenge! If you don't know what that is, check out all the info here and come join us!  Anyways, I decided to really challenge myself this year, this year days 1-10 I will be doing pretty detailed nail art, each will be recorded and posted to my youtube and each one will be themed around a Disney character! Thanks to the bestie Rose, she helped me pick characters for each day!
Day one is "Red", so the first character that came to mind was Ariel from The Little Mermaid, with her bright red hair! Here was my result!

I was super happy with this! I felt like her face could have been a little better but I still love her!

I applied a red to purple gradient as my base and added some holo sparkle as well as some white swirl stamping. Using acrylic paint I freehand painted Ariel. Sealed it all with a glossy top coat.

Whats Up Nails- #20 Dance Brush

Now the brush I used to do this I received for review by Whats Up Nails, and man oh man! I'm in love!! Check this cool thing out!! It's the new #20 Dance Brush. This brush is great for creating intricate nail art designs and details. The bristles are made from Kolinsky sable hair that can't be damaged by acetone so you can use and clean these brushes with pure acetone or any other nail polish remover. For others that's pretty cool, I only use water with my brushes since I use acrylic paint when doing detail manis.

As you can see from the photos above it is a 2 piece brush. The back half of the brush is actually the cap, which helps protect the brush itself when not in use. I also always put a tiny amount of either cuticle oil or balm on the bristles of the brush when I'm done using it so it helps keep the bristles In place and at a point. 

If you do nail art I highly suggest grabbing this! It is very reasonably priced for such a great, well made brush. It is $9.75. But you can use my code "CDBNAILS143" at checkout for 10% off your order!
