31 Day Challenge: Day 18 (Half Moons)
We’re moving right along into day 18 of the 31 Day Challenge, Half Moons! I’ve always wanted to try creating the half moon look because I think it looks so chic and sophisticated! I wanted to try to re-create the Dita Von Teese half moon manicure look, but I wanted to use a more vampy/dark red than what she normally sports. I opted for layering China Glaze’s Branding Iron (a shimmering brown based red) over one coat of Orly’s Au Champagne, a gorgeous shimmering white polish from their 2011 Holiday Soirée collection (review to come).
Day 18: Half Moons
I’m really quite pleased with the way these came out! Using the page reinforcement rings really made creating the half moon look SO incredibly easy. And I’m really loving the contrast between the wonderful winter white of Au Champagne and the glowing deep rich red of Branding Iron. ♥
I also filed my nails down just a mm or two, I realized how long they were getting after my glitter nails from yesterday! And for everyone wanting to know where I purchased Golden Seahorse, you can find it [HERE] but it’s currently out of stock again.
Macro shot here, the shimmer in both polishes is heavenly.
Thanks for checking out my day 18 nails! I can’t believe how easy it is to create this look! I think I’ll be playing with half moons a lot more in the future.
