Tutorial : Half Moon

Thursday, August 04, 2011


This tutorial has been floating around for a lonnnnng time now, 
I wasn't the first and I certainly won't be the last.
I decided to try my hand at this for the first time ;
 I am pleased with the results so I decided to share with you dahhlings too.



What You'll Need : 

Base Coat
Top Coat
Two Nail Polishes Of Choice
Quick Nail Drying Coat/Drops* 
Lemon Juice*
Olive Oil*



I started off with a nail & hand soak mixed with one part lemon juice, 
to three parts olive oil, and warm mixture slightly in the microwave


Apply a base coat & your colour of choice that will be shown 
as the half moon colour my chosen colour is China Glaze - 2030


Using hole punch re-enforcements cut it in half and place
them at the desired height - of course the higher it's placed
the higher your half moon will be. 



Now painting the rest of your nails a chosen second colour mine is OPI - That's Berry Daring


Once drying put a fast drying top coat or drops on top...
When dry peel off the stickers to reveal your very on half moon manicure


I decided to put some little gems on mine lol little experiment....



Peace & Love
