Carmine Red

I was looking through my stash, and it’s been a while since I’ve done any reds.

This red was made of half Color Club On Fire, a darkish pink neon, and half L’Oreal Thrill, a medium red creme. It’s a bright carmine red- very cheerful and summery. It’s not quite as sophisticated as a medium red creme, but I like the fun vibe this gives off.

Continuing with the summer theme, I stuck a few hibiscus decals and some rhinestones on. I’m ready to go to Hawaii!

About nevertoomuchglitter

Nail artist. Wanderer. I'm a color-holic, in fact, it was my love of color that brought me to the nail art world. Well, that, and the fact I was too cheap to pay crazy Japanese prices for nail polish while living in Tokyo, so I had to start mixing my own. That's how NTMG began.

    Areli- I wish I could go to Hawaii! I went to university there and I really want to go back!

    Sandibel- Thanks for stopping by. 🙂 For the Konad smudges, it’s best to roll your nail under the Konad stamp rather than just pressing the stamp directly on. Also, if you apply topcoat, try not to brush hard- just lay it on and make sure the brush has a fair amount of topcoat so as not to “drag” the Konad design. Good luck!

    Thank you! I will try it ASAP and let you know 🙂

  6. You are so good about mixing your stickers and jewels! That is really kind of hard for me to do. I never really know where to place the jewels if I have the stickers on, but you usually do an amazing job of it!
