*note - super busy today, I had thought I pushed publish last night for this to upload automatically, but I did not. Sorry for the late post, hope you enjoy!*
Today I have a half moon mani attempt for you! My sister asked me to give her a half moon mani in black and white, I thought great, I can get some practice! And after a couple days of her wearing it, I couldn't help but want to create my own :)
What I had planned on doing was using one coat of Color Club - Oh Naturale and a coat or 2 on top of OPI's Ginger Bells for a Thankgiving/fall half moon :)
What ended up happening was a mess... I used reinforcement stickers as a guide for the half moon apparently too soon (some of the polish pulled up) and all of moons were left uneven :( This may have been due to the fact that I had my whole family coming over within half an hour for dinner and was in a rush!
What I ended up doing was taking everything off and painting 2 coats of Ginger Bells and leaving it like that for the night. The next day I took a striper brush and filled in the half moon with Oh Naturale lol. Definitely not ideal, but it worked! I sealed it all in with thin topcoat and this was the final product.
I think I definitely want to try the half moon mani again (the proper way) free hand. I feel like I would have more control of the final moon and it would be easier to get all nails consistent.
What do you ladies think? Can you tell I painted the half moon on top?
