If you follow me on twitter you probably know I'm a little OCD about my nails. My sister and I love experimenting with new designs + whatnot. I've gotten a lot of questions on the "half moon" trend that I always do - it's so simple!
- paint full nail with a lighter color base coat.
- let dry completely.
- use a binder reinforcement to place on top of nail, placing the end of it (closer to the tip of your nail) wherever you want your new color to start.
- carefully paint the bottom half of your nail with another color.
- let dry for a few minutes and peel off the reinforcement with a set of tweezers (just to ensure you don't mess your new nails up!
- done and done!
The studded manicure above is really simple too - my sister bought microbeads from the craft store and I just haphazardly sprinkled them over my wet nails, let them sit and painted a clear coat over. It would probably look cool to do a design with the beads but I was just anxious to see if it worked :)
P.S. the knuckle ring in the last photo is from Planet Blue.
oh yeah MERRY CHRISTMAS EVE! what are your plans?!
