Day 18 of the 30 Day Challenge brings us to half moons. I had never done this style of manicure before. From what I gather, it’s a vintage style that was popular in the 1920s, ’30s and ’40s, so a real classic.
The simplest form is probably black and white, but I wanted to do something a little more snazzy, so I used the lovely Enchanted Polish Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds, a silver/white holographic polish. This was an untried for me, for the 30 Days Of Untrieds I’m doing simultaneously.
I started with two coats of Enchanted Polish Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds, followed by one coat of Poshe fast-dry top coat. Once it was dry, I used some hole reinforcer stickers that I got at Target to mask off the bottom part of my nails. They weren’t quite a perfect fit, but maybe I could have jiggered it a bit.
Once they were in place, I painted on two coats of Orly Liquid Vinyl, a black glossy creme. I then removed the stickers.
I added one coat of regular top coat to my ring finger and placed a large clear rhinestone on the tip of the nail for an accent, and then topped all of nails with another coat of Poshe.
Here’s a look at Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds on its own.
