It's been about six weeks since we lost my father to colon cancer. Dad was diagnosed three years ago, and our family had many ups and downs over the past several years. We knew the prognosis wasn't good, but I don't think you're ever really prepared to say goodbye to someone you love so much.

I decided I would start a nail challenge to give me some incentive to get polishing again, to narrow the focus to someone manageable, and to give me something fun to think about. I probably won't be able to post every day, but I figure that getting back to doing some of the things I like is a step in the right direction.
I chose the simplest of the nail challenges, the one where the first week is primarily polish only, to get myself back in the groove. I thought, "Red nails? I can manage that!". So here's my post for the first day of this challenge.
I chose Heaven Waikiki Sunset, a surprisingly pretty polish I noticed at the grocery store (on sale for about $2)! It's a magenta glitter and is slightly matte without topcoat. I also used this polish to color in one of my ladybug manis.
Here's the nail challenge, in case you're not familiar with it. It's been floating around for a while out there although I'm not sure who initially created it.
Well - I made it through Day 1 - hooray!
Thanks for reading, polish friends! I'll try to post the next challenge soon.
