Half Moon Stamping

12 Jan

Happy Friday!!!!  We have made it through the second week of January and before you know it, it will be summer!!!  To get me through the year and on track, I have started a fun 52 Week Nail Challenge that has a fun new theme each week and we get to share with others working on the same challenge.  Now I don’t know if I am going to pull off all 52 weeks but I am going to try my best.  If you want something just to find a little inspiration or just to share a love with fellow lacqueristas then please join us.

For week 2 we are going with a half moon theme.  Originally I was going to go with a traditional look but after having some dry issues due to the extreme low temps in my house, I had to change it up after a little warm up in weather this week.  For my half moon mani I started off with three thin coats of Siren’s Mint Smash by Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer.  Next I used the Art Deco Plate from Powder Perfect and Byrdie by Zoya.  Everything is sealed with a coat of Marvel Liquid Macro Top Coat by SuperChic Lacquer.

What do you guys think of my take on a half moon manicure?  I’m pretty pleased with the end results and loving the color combo….I think I am done with cold weather and ready for a warm up!  Thank you so much for stopping by today and please, join us in the 52 Week Nail Challenge! <3

    That is a cute mani!! The stamping looks so precise. It gives a look of real netting over the nails. Great job!
