I did the 31 Day Challenge first time pretty much two years ago and it was one of the most educational experiences to me when it comes to nail art and it also pushed me out of my comfort zone very efficiently. Lately I've been thinking about redoing the challenge, because first off it would be nice to see how (or if) my skills have improved but also because in the challege I made several nails that I have wanted to do again (like the half moons and the galaxies and such). Also, quite a few of people seem to have been doing the challenge again lately and I so I got the final push from seeing all the great manis people are doing and especially from Sannu who also started to do the challenge all over again just couple days ago. Sannu had this great idea about the challenge to include a picture of those nails that she did two years ago for the challenge to her new challenge posts and I'm going to borrow the awesome idea (hope it's ok with you Sannu?!) and always include one picture and a link to my first challenge nails.
So, this is going to be the first day of the challenge for me, but like first time, I'm not going to do this on daily basis and I will be probably doing some other posts in between the challenge posts, but hopefully I will finish this before Christmas! :D
Chalkboard Nails made some new images for the challenge, so I took this new glittery one from there. But here's a reminder how the challenge goes forward:
And as it is my first day, I have some red nails to show you!
It's the first day and I'm kind of bending the rules already as my nails aren't strickly red as the base color is more on the coral side.. Oh well, to me this counts as kind of red.. :D
I used first two coats of Inocos Maria Menina, then I added one coat of I Love Nail Polish Clown Business on top of that. Clown Business has blue, white and red (yay red for the challenge!) glitters in it and it's quite a fun and beautiful mix! I also do like the color of Maria Menina, it's coral, but it's not too light shade as light corals seem to look weird on me.

Two years ago I started this challenge with a gorgeous red and simple creme nails:
This gorgeous red was Zoya Sooki and you can read the whole post here.
So tell me guys, what do you think of me redoing the challenge?
