31DC2013 Day 18: Half Moons

I'm taking it easy today. Nothing ambitious to see here, folks. I had to do today's as simple as possible because I am freaking out about tomorrow's galaxy nails! Earlier I was joking about ulcers, but it wasn't that big of an exaggeration. Two nights ago while working on my glitter manicure I developed a broken blood vessel on my face! The stress is taking its toll. Maybe I need to get in touch with OSHA again..

Anyway, simple is good. I think that's what makes half moon manicures so popular. They are simple, elegant, and have endless possibilities of color combinations. I am really enjoying this color combo!



This is the first time for me doing a half moon manicure. Well, actually, that's a lie. I tried it once before, but that was before I knew what I was doing. This was also the first time I used both of these polishes. Aren't they so pretty?



How to:
I applied two coats of Zoya Robyn all over the nail, then applied top coat to help it dry faster. When it was completely dry I put round paper reinforcers in place above the cuticle. Working one nail at a time, I painted one coat of  Zoya Natty, the darker shade, then immediately removed the reinforcers. After they were drying for a few minutes I finished with a top coat. Viola! I love it when things are easy and they look good! 






What I used:
Zoya Robyn
Zoya Natty
Seche Vite top coat


Come back tomorrow for something much more complex! I'm not promising it will turn out since I've never tried it. We'll have to wait and see!

  1. I love the office supplies trick! I also love these polishes. Where did you get them?

    1. I purchased them from Zoya.com. They have a ton of really gorgeous colors. They also have a small selection at the Ulta near my home. Not sure what they offer at the other locations.
