#52weeknailchallenge - week 15: Black + Red

Hi everyone!

YES! It may be almost week 16 but I'm writing this post in week 15 so that means I'm all caught up :)

This week's prompt is Black + Red so I immediately thought 'lace' and set out to pick a red polish. I stumbled across a beautiful classic, cool-toned red and all thoughts of lace left my brain. This polish was just too pretty to hide under a stamp! As this is a nail ART challenge, I figured I couldn't get away with just ten red nails without any decoration (and there was the tiny detail of Black as well ;) so I decided to do the simplest of nail art and leave the red as the glorious eye catcher. May I present my Black + Red themed manicure?

Hi everyone!

I'm catching up on all the things that were neglected these last weeks... so full speed ahead for a quick post about the week 14 prompt of the 52 Week Nail Art Challenge: Autumn.

#52weeknailchallenge - week 12: Vinyls

Hi everyone!

So much for catching up on Easter Monday... but I'm back for another attempt! Let's see if I can manage to catch up on reading, commenting and posting by Sunday. That should be doable, unless another catastrophe happens (like taxes that have to be filled out before the end of March... with one week grace period, so instead of typing posts I was typing numbers into a calculator).

And talking about disasters, this manicure definitely was that! First I deleted the wrong folders with pictures causing me to lose not just the watermarked ones on my computer but the ones on my camera as well and of course I had removed my original manicure by then so I had to redo it. And while recreating the original design I managed to mess up so many times I used up all my vinyls...

So with all pictures lost and no vinyls left I could of course just skip this prompt but I didn't want to do that, so instead I decided to use the most basic form of vinyls: sticky tape! Combined with pretty pink polishes this is the result:
