Half Moon Week

Post  starrystarry on Sun Oct 21, 2012 7:35 am

I wasn't looking forward to this week's challenge, I've not been keen on a lot of the half moon manis I've seen. Some of them just look like a regular mani that's growing out (my worst nightmare, that someone would look at my nails and think "scruffy cow, she's had that on for a fortnight"). I looked at a load of pics on google this morning and came to the conclusion that it's the ones that have a neutral/light colour on the half moon that run the risk of your nails looking like the ones on the slattern who served me in B&M Bargains this afternoon ( affraid ). So after much agonising and pairing of colours I went for dark green (Essie Going Incognito) on the half moon and a lighter holo green (Nubar Reclaim I love you ) above it. Against all the odds, I love it. Why haven't I tried this before? I'm gonna half moon all the time now, you're going to get so sick of seeing endless versions of this from me!

That's not ugly, I love that! I saw a similar one somewhere recently, but they'd used white as a base colour. I prefer the blue.

I really like the colours you used shoppingaddict. Must give that combo a try.
