Half Moon Mani Week 6

For this weeks challenge I turned my Hot Pink Color Zone mani into my Half Moon mani. I added Orly's 'Goth' and a light bubblegum pink for the dots with an nail art polish then topped it all with a thick coat of SV.

I used the tried and true method of using the paper reinforcer dots to block the cuticle creating the half moon design. This time however I cut them in half and it made it much easier to seat them tightly on my nail.

Then I decided to change it up a bit and do an accent nail. It looks like the negative of the others.

Then just for V-Day I thought I would try adding a few hearts :D

These are my new Red Angle plate designs that I haven't played with much. I was kind of in a hurry to get out the door and get my errands done so I rushed it and was rewarded for my impatience with some smudging and then a little streaking because I didn't let it dry :P When will I learn!

I still got a few compliments on it while out and about. I think we're all more critical of our own work. No one else looks as closely to see all our 'flaws' and goofs :)


  1. This is very cute, love the hearts!!!

  2. I love the dots along the half-moon area! And the hearts are a nice touch :)

    Very true, no one looks as closely to see the flaws as the author/painter/nail polisher (hm, I'm having a hard time naming ourselves this morning) does.

  3. This looks awesome!

  4. I am seriously loving the hot pink & black! I nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award! See the post here

  5. This is really cute...I love your accent nail! And your blog is adorable =]

  6. @Jackie- Thank You! I love that stamp too. I have to get used to the Red Angle plates though because they are cut much deeper that the Bundle Monsters. They hold more polish and therefore are easier to smudge ;/ but I love them!

    @Fingers- Thanks Dude!lol They were a little over the top for me but I still enjoed wearing it for a couple days.

    @KB- Thanks! Yeah, I thought it needed a little something extra at the moon and the dots gave it a unique feel I think. I agree we should all be a little more complimentary to ourselves :D and I tink were are all the above- painters, artists, authors, nail polishing fanatics.... !

    @Amy- Thanks! I had fun doing it.

    @DragonLady- Thanks so much! That is so nice of you to give my first award!!!! <3

    @Nail Diva- Thanks, I just saw your blog too and ditto! :D

  7. Wow, I'm just gonna have to really try even harder to let my nails grow like yours just so you can paint mine someday.

  8. I'm trying to catch up on everyone's nail art from past posts, since I'm just getting started, and saw this today... guess what? I bought a Red Angel bundle for my first set of plates, and this exact heart design was what I used for my Valentine's mani this week, and also it's my very first stamping! You're posts are great, thanks for sharing, and Happy Valentine's 2012!

  9. These are so CUTE! love the color combo.
