Day 1–Red Nails: Nerd Lacquer - Warrior Ethos

Today marks the first day of the 31 day nail challenge and I still cannot believe I am doing it. I just hope I am disciplined enough to keep at it! What better way to start than with a powerful and motivational polish called Warrior Ethos by Nerd Lacquer. I always feel a little sad when I wear one of Amanda’s creations…this was one of the first indie brands of nail polish that were available through Etsy and was my first indie polish purchase. I figured I’d start off slow for Day 1 and not do any nail art just yet. Warrior Ethos is also just so gorgeous that I couldn’t possibly combine it with anything else! This is a marvellous red jelly with black and silver micro and hex glitter. The black hex glitter was the hardest to get and the few pieces that you see are from fishing. This is just two coats for full opacity.

    1. That's why we're rooting each other on! I mean, obviously if we have other things to do in "real life" it's not a big deal, but I think it would be cool to say we did it!
