Day 18: Half Moons

Hello everyone! It’s time for another Nails Of The Day post – of the 18th day to be more exact. The task was to do a half moons manicure. Here’s my version for the Challenge:

Half Moon Nails

The banknote I’m holding is a non circulated one. This note comes from Belarus and it dates back to the year of 2000. Nowadays it’s a collectible item for those who collect paper money. I just happened to have this very banknote and a couple of others for a few days. I don’t collect banknotes, tho I like the idea of collecting money… real money :D
Anyway I don’t want to bore you with non-nail-polish-related stuff :) So here are my half moons nails with OPI:

Pink Half Moon Nails

For the half moon nails I used:

  • Pink base – OPI Shorts Story (3 coats)
  • Purple half moons – OPI Pamplona Purple
  • Silver lines – Orly Dazzle
  • Stickers for French tips
  • Nail art brush to paint silver lines with
  • Clear top coat – Orly Glosser

That’s how it looks from a distance:

Thank you for reading! Have a good day/evening ahead of you xxx

PS: I’ve just recieved a comment from a girl who lives in Belarus, it turned out that the banknote is still in circulation there. Tatyana, thank you for the update! :)

    I never liked the half-moon style. Until today. That’s sexy!

    I hate crackle-polish too. I bet you could change my mind on that too.

      Thank you :) I’m not a big fan of crackle polishes either, I have only one of those – OPI Black Shatter, but I’ll add the idea of crackle design to my “to do” list of manicures :)

  2. I love these colours together! Great post :)

  4. Very neat mani and interesting combination of colors! Love the silver stripe separating 2 colors.
    P.S. yes, the banknote is still at circulation, at least it was this winter when I was in Belarus;)
