I was sitting around thinking about what I wanted to paint this week, when I decided I wanted to try a half-moon manicure. This design from The Daily Nail got stuck in my head, so I decided to go ahead and give it a try. And here's the final product!
I started with a base coat of Seche Clear, and then two coats of Naturistics Super Shine in Mahogany Pearl.
Next, I used page reinforcements to block off the half-moon, and then painted the rest of the nail in Revlon's Totally Toffee til I couldn't see any red coming through.
Then, I used my nail stamper again to create the cheetah print. This time, it's Konad Plate # M57 using Revlon's Hot for Chocolate. I'm not going to show every step of how to use the stamp in this post. If you'd like a refresher, please visit this post.
I stamped the design with the reinforcer still on, to keep the red un-touched. I then removed the reinforcement, and topped it all off with two coats of Seche Vite top coat.
|As you can tell, my bottles of polish get pretty beaten up. But I just choose to think of them as well-loved!|
