31DC2013 Day 18: Half Moons

Hi guys!

Are you tired of seeing my posts yet? I hope not!
Day 18! And for the first time, I'm actually ahead on today's challenge. And as we're getting closer to the 4th week, I'm starting to get really nervous. I have no idea of what I want to do on those 'inspired by' days :s I'm even nervous for tomorrow's challenge, as I've never done galaxy nails before.

Anyway, for today's theme, half moons, I did a reverse half moon mani. I was thinking of doing a real half moon painting, but nah.. I'm saving my creativity for the more difficult challenge :p. When I knew what I wanted to do, I also knew right away which polishes I want to use for it. My base is OPI Incognito in Sausalito, layered with OPI I Juggle..Men. I free-handed the half moon shape on the tips with a small liner brush using OPI Haven't The Foggiest. I forgot how beautiful IJM is over a dark base, and wondered why I haven't used it in so long. Then I found out why... IJM is kinda.. you can say tempramental maybe? It has tendency to shrink the base polish you layered it with. I remembered that I had to use top coat before layering it, this time I didn't and it shrunk 2 of my nails :( 








How do you like this half moon tips mani? Wish me luck on my galaxy mani tomorrow! Haha!
