Deadly Sins Challenge Day 1: Lust

When I found out that One Nail to Rule Them All and Nail Wish created a nail art challenge based on the Seven Deadly Sins, I just had to join in!

This is actually the first challenge I will be participating in with other (extremely talented) nail artists, despite my name, so bear with me!

The first day of Deadly Sins is "Lust."The challenge says to "Be a bad girl and make something you have wanted to do so badly." Well, I have always wanted to do this Daily Polish inspired design that incorporated bows, but I also wanted to make it a bit sexy!

Of course, I have little experience drawing actual art on my nails, so the bow isn't exactly... good. But anyway, I used a base of China Glaze Designer Satin on my pointer and pinky, and OPI Liquid Sand in Stay The Night for my ring finger. On my middle finger, I used a base of Sinful Colors Black on Black, then painted the bow using Designer Satin, China Glaze Rich and Famous, and OPI Casino Royale.

And here is the dreaded photo of my bow.....

I know it's sucky but it was my first try!! I am going to make an effort to start drawing better art on my nails, so be patient!

Here is the challenge list for anyone who wants to take part: (click to enlarge)
