31dc2012 - day 18

The theme for Day 18 of the 31 Day Challenge is Half Moons!

I read somewhere before that the half-moon manicure was created because it was once seen as inappropriate for a woman to have her entire nail painted. I'm not sure why on earth leaving one little piece naked would make it better, but hey, it makes for a cute manicure!


This was another one of the keep-changing-as-I-go manicures where I sit down with one idea and end up with something pretty different in the end. I like it though!


The base color for this manicure is Orly - Lollipop.
I just painted it on freehand and cleaned up the half-moon shape afterward with my usual cleanup brush dipped in acetone.

Then I sponged on some of the fine silver glitter polish, China Glaze - Silver Lining.

Finally I added large silver rhinestones, and then some hex glitters that I fished out of Color Club - Platinum Record.


This manicure is ultra-girly and I'm enjoying wearing it! But it is gonna come off in a few hours when I start attempting my galaxy... Ah!
