Pink Wednesday & Half Moon 2

Here is my second take on the Half Moon Mani Challenge for this week plus it's pink :)

I started with 10 'Always and Forever'. This was kind of a pain to apply due to the streaks and it took three thick coats to cover well. I'm just glad I got it on clearance because I had to put in lot more effort with this one ;P Then I added Finger Paints 'Stunning Stilettos' and some white (to trim it out) with a nail art brush. I didn't use any guides with this one so each nail is slightly different. 

I used 10 'Birthday Suit' on top of it all to give it a hint of creamy blue shimmer and a few hexagon glitter pieces from Kleancolor 'Chunky Silver'. I used the glitter instead of rhinestone this time because I always have issues with the rhinestones either falling off or driving me so nuts that I have to pick them off lol. I think it's a great alternative and I'll be substituting glitter for rhinestones every chance I get :D


Indoors in the artifical lighting it looks a little more peachy than outdoors.

I don't know why but the combonation of pink, grey and white was just stuck in my head.;

Here are a couple shots of 10 'Always and Forever' by itself.

It changes a lot in different lighting as you can see. I think mostly it's a shade right in between these last two pictures.

What do you guys think? Have you tried and of the polishes from 10?
 Did you have application issues with them or is it just me lol?


  1. I like the idea of using the glitter instead of rhinestones! super pretty half moon by the way

  2. I like the grey, white, and pink combination! I also nominated you for the Liebster Blog award over on my blog.

  3. @Samantha- me too! I need a little more practice picking them out of the polish though lol.

    @KB- Thank you! You're too sweet.

    @Jackie- Thanks, it's glitter but I'm glad you think it looks like a stone because that was the look I was gong for :D

  4. Love it, especially the coral tone, reminds me of the "50's"

  5. love it! I love grey and brights :)

  6. I think this is very cool! I like it
