31 Day Challenge 2014: *18*

Moving on from glitter was definitely hard. I could've worn that mani for a lot longer. BUT... the challenge goes on, and I'm already 2 days behind... so, here we are with HALF MOONS for Day 18 on what's supposed to be Day 20 of the #31DC2014.

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
3 Coats SinfulColors Smokin'
2 Coats Sally Hansen Jell-ous?
2 Coats Sally Hansen Grape Jelly
2 Coats Sally Hansen Jell-ous?
1 Coat Sally Hansen Grape Jelly
1 Coat OPI Pirouette My Whistle
2 Coats Sally Hansen Jell-ous?
1 Coat Seche Vite

I'm seriously loving this manicure, so much so, that I'm sad to take it off. I'm definitely going to have to try another half-moon mani in the the future. Hard to believe this was my first one!

To create my half-moons, I used binder reinforcement stickers. I painted on 3 coats of Smokin'... a charcoal gray creme polish. Varying between coats of Jell-ous, a sheer pink jelly, and Grape Jelly, a sheer jelly purple polish, The gray turned into more of purple, while the negative space half-moons took on a sheer rosy pink. At that point, my nails were pretty, but they were definitely missing something. So, I added a coat of Pirouette My Whistle for a touch of glitter. 2 more coats of Jell-ous on top of that, and I was ready for a thick coat of Seche Vite to start the drying process.

As much as I like how my half-moon manicure turned out... I'm really anxious for the next prompt. GALAXIES... here I come!
