31 Day Challenge – Day 18: Half Moons

Hi everyone!

The 31 day challenge has really been full of firsts for me. Since this is a young blog, practically everything I post is a first in some way for the blog, but many of the designs called for in the challenge I am actually doing for the first time as well. I guess my nail repertoire wasn’t that big!

halfmoon1I started off with NYX matte in Matte Sky Blue for the half-moon part. Once it was dry, I marked off the half-moon shape with a hole reinforcer and painted over my nails with Nails Inc – Belgrave Place. Once that was dry, I made a line of topcoat along the half-moon line and placed the orange glitters using a tacky toothpick.


I was really impressed with how shiny Belgrave Place was, it’s a completely gorgeous polish!


What do you think of the half-moon look? Have you tried it before?

halfmoon3Tomorrow’s theme is galaxy nails, I’ve done mine with each nail a different colour!
