#ManiMonday: Pink Half Moons


I found the inspiration on Polish & Pearls awhile back and had the picture saved on my ipad, just waiting for me to recreate it. And all I keep thinking is why did I wait so long?


 
 

To create this manicure, I used the following polishes and some reinforcements from the drugstore:

 
Left to Right:

-Julep 'Natasha'
-Orly 'Purple Crush'
-Zoya 'Ali'
-Sally Hansen 'Coral Reef'
-Creative Arts- No Name
-Sally Hansen 'Golden-I'
 

To recreate this, apply 1 coat of base coat followed by 1 coat of Golden-I.  Allow to completely dry, then apply reinforcements (cut in half for easier application.) Next, apply one coat of each of the pinks, insuring it's a thick coat as it'll be the only coat. Make sure to remove the reinforcement after you paint each nail or the paint will begin to dry and peel off your nail when you go to remove.


What do you think? Is this something you'll try?
