Sorry for my lack of postage lately.. I have no good reason really, besides wanting to just spend time with the boyfriend before he goes on a month long sailing trip for military training. I've just been avoiding the computer pretty much :)
This is a mani I did last week. It was my first attempt at a half moon mani, and I haaated it lol. I'll have to try again, but I think I just didn't like the colour combination I used. Something just didn't seem right about it, anyway.
I think I might have preferred it if I had covered up most of the light pink instead of covering up the darker shade. Because the accent nail is the one I loved the most!
I used a base of Color Club - Hot Like Lava which is sooo pretty on it's own. Then stuck on the hole reinforcement stickies and put a coat of OPI - Steady as she Rose, and covered that up with Revlon - Starry Pink. I really like Starry Pink, but I feel like it doesn't really suit my skin tone very well. (Side note: I remember in my early polish blog reading days being confused about that statement, that a polish just 'didn't suit their skin tone' and I thought it was totally absurd. Now I understand, haha).
Moving on. My accent finger was done using 2 coats of starry pink, and I added OPI - Metalic 4 Life on top. I think that combo was super cute!
And then to cover up a few mistakes I added some silver polish around the half moon part. Blech.

Thanks for looking :)
