Advent Calendar Day 1 – Red

Since I decided to do Happy Hands’s Advent Calendar Challenge last minute, I thought I’d do something simple for day 1.  Since today’s theme is red, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to use some of the new holiday polishes I’ve picked up this year.  Add in my current stamping obsession, and this is what you get.

I started with Essie Snap Happy from the winter 2012 collection.  It’s a nice bright, orangey red.  Maybe more of a summer red than a winter red, but still gorgeous.  Took three coats to be opaque, though.  Then I stamped a swirly design using Bundle Monster plate 314 and China Glaze Merry Berry from this year’s Holiday Joy collection.  Merry Berry is much darker than it stamped, but I actually really love the subtle look.

Even though it’s hard to see, I absolutely love how this turned out.  It’s red with a little something extra.  So pretty.
