February Nail Art Challenge: Half Moons


 I definitely took some liberties with this half moon mani. lol. As you can see, only two of the nails actually ended up being half moons. My base color (Julep Carrie) was taking soooo long to dry, even with a fast dry top coat that when I used the binder reinforcements for the half moons, they were making big dents in the polish. Also, I ended up smudging one and had to start all over with dry time. 

I must say, though, these half moons turned out way better than my first failed attempt. And, I really did love the color combo and the mani itself. You all know I love me some bows and polka dots! lol.






Colors used for this mani:
Julep Carrie
Essie Turquoise and Caicos
OPI Alpine Snow

    1. Thanks, Erica! I'm glad that everyone likes it so much. :) You could even stamp a bow or just do dots on the ring finger instead of a 3d bow!
