Autumn nail art challenge: Red and black

Autumn nail art challenge: Red and black manicure
What kind of complete klutz breaks a whole bottle of O.P.I. I'm Not Really A Waitress halfway through application for a red-themed nail art?  And then realises that this was the only true red polish she had?
I know it is well over three months since I last painted my nails. The fact is that all the travel I have been doing broke and damaged my nails badly - airplanes and lugging suitcases - and I developed weird hangnail-like protrusions from the sides. I will tell you more about them and how I solved the problem in another post. For now, I am going to celebrate my return to nail polishing with a nail art challenge series that runs through the rest of this year.
Read on for more deets and photos.

After smashing I'm Not Really A Waitress, I rummaged through my stash and came up with Rainbow Honey Nail Lacquer in Persephone, which I have swatched before here. Over this, I dabbed Givenchy Vernis Please in Noir Celeste, featured before here, using a sponge. Both were glittery polishes and went well together.
The first and last photographs are in natural light. This is what the mani looked like in direct sunlight.

I finished with Bourjois Fixant Brilliant top coat. This is my submission to the Autumn Nail Challenge hosted by Lisa Oswald. I am going to be challenging myself a little more by using black in every episode of this challenge for the first six weeks. Can't wait for next week's edition!
