Today is DAY ONE in the 31 day challenge and I am super excited to be starting this again for the second year in a row! Day 1 is Red. Again this year instead of just posting a swatch I have decided to do some nail art inspired by the colour to make things a little more interesting.
When I was in Juneau, Alaska I had the amazing opportunity to go to The Red Dog Saloon. We arrived in Juneau at 7AM and went to see a glacier first thing and were back in town by 10:30. So instead of just walking around we decided to head to the famous Red Dog Saloon and have a beer at 10:30 in the morning! The Red Dog Saloon really is a place to see, they still have a woodchip floor and an old man playing 1920's style music. This place was hoppin' so early! In Canada you can't even serve alcohol until 11AM! We got to sit and enjoy an Alaskan Summer Beer after the magnificence of the glacier. This was for sure one of the highlights of my trip so I thought I needed to recreate the symbol on my nails!
I started off with Sally Hansen Rapid Red on all my nails. Two quick coats and I was ready for some art. On my middle two nails I depicted the saloon doors and the Red Dog symbol in the middle, copying the shirt that I had bought there. On my index and pinky nails I wrote Red Dog and on my thumb I created the Red Dog symbol!
On all my nails the white I used was, Cult Nails Tempest, the black was Wet n Wild Black Creme and the gold I used was Orly Luxe. All of the work was done with my favourite cut down super small nail art brush!
Going to The Red Dog Saloon was for sure one the the highlights of my trip to Alaska and I had a lot of fun creating this look on my nails! I think many of my upcoming nail art looks will be inspired by some of the amazingness of Alaska. I hope you are all ok with that!
