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!



  1. These are so pretty. Love the combination.

  2. wow! love the layers you used to make the blue base color!
