Nail Challenge Day 18: Smokey Half Moons

I've never really ventured into the half moons. But now that I am here I truly like them. They are simple but elegant. Pair them with contrasting colours to see the true beauty of this design.

I first applied one coat of Sinful Colors You Just Wait, which is a soft pink with an iridescent shimmer. Next I applied some binder reinforcement stickers onto the nails to block out a half moon shape before applying China Glaze Smoke and Ashes (from the Hunger Games collection).



And only because I have two of the sweetest little angels as nieces, I graciously took their advice and spruced it up even more with these cute little stars.


Stay tuned for Day 19: Galaxies and be sure to stop by Jayne's blog Cosmetic Proof and Traci's blog DrinkCitra to see what gorgeous designs they also created for this challenge! 

Happy Half Moons!
XOXO

  3. I like how both parts of the half moon design have matching shimmer! It's a nice added touch to a regular half moon :)

Maybelline Color Tattoo and Loreal Infallible Eyeshadows! Plus More!!!

I can go for weeks, maybe a month without buying new makeup. I have that discipline but all that goes to south (I’m a north girl) when new products come out to play and particularly when I was literally stalking the stores to see if there was a sighting of the new Maybelline color tattoos. Come back next month. Ask me again in two weeks time. These were the comments I kept getting but finally there are here and what better way to celebrate their arrival by going nuts and buying their showcase neighbours as well, the Loreal infallible eye-shadows. I love Pennywise!
