Day 18 of the 30 Day Challenge: Half moon manicure

So after everyone saying how easy this manicure is, I completely disagree. It took such an effort to get it looking good enough!

For those who don’t know, you can achieve this effect with a bit of cheating. You know those holepunch protectors you can buy? You know, the little stickers that go around the holes in paper to stop them from ripping…well this effect is made using those.

I started by painting my nails with Barry M Bright Pink and then waited AGES to make sure the ink was completely dry. I then stuck one of the hole protectors over where the moon of my nail should be and made sure I pressed it down well so I would get straight lines. Next I painted the nails with Maybelline Midnight Blue, making sure to paint over the stickers a bit to get a clean line. Finally, I peeled off the stickers to show the pink moons underneath.

I’m bit annoyed that I got the moon wonky on my ring finger, but it’s not too unbearable…

For this manicure I used:
  • Revlon – Quick Dry Base Coat
  • Maybelline – Midnight Blue
  • Barry M – Bright Pink
  • Revlon – Quick Dry Top Coat
