After seeing the 31 Day Challenge on numerous nail blogs, as well as the RedditLacqueristas subreddit, I decided to give it a try. I'm combining it with the 30 Days of Untrieds and making an effort to use at least one polish in each manicure that I haven't used since I started keeping track.
I started keeping track for another "project" of mine--using each of my polishes at least once during this school year. I haven't counted exactly, and I do have quite a few others at home which I'll hopefully be bringing back over some holiday breaks, but I have somewhere in the range of 275-325. Doable, but I'll have to try to get to all of them before just going back and reusing my favorites.
The first manicure I decided to do is largely red with a green leaf accent. I actually really don't like how the leaves turned out, as they were rushed and done while I was trying not to mess up the ladybugs (I'm impatient and can't ever wait for something to just dry...), but I've been meaning to do ladybugs for a while, and the Red Nails day gave me the perfect reason to do that.
