I was excited to take on this challenge because I done it once and was very pleased with the look. The first time I took on the challenge I used reinforcements to tape off for the moon design. Lo and behold I couldn't find them. So, I tried to freehand the moon...bad decision it looked like a first grader took on the challenge. Lol! I grabbed my Nailene french tip guides, they did okay but it didn't give the round curve shape I was looking for.
After applying my base coat I polished on 2 coats of L'oreal Now You See Me. It's a pretty greyed teal creme and sorta jelly like. This polish is thin, I had some dragging problems with it. Next time I'll make sure I let the first coat dry thoroughly.
I applied a coat of Seche Vite so the first polish can dry faster. I waited about 10 mins. and applied the french tip guides carefully. I layered a coat of Wet n' Wild On a Trip. I am in love with this purple shade. I think it's gorgeous! The bottle brush is hugh I mean so hugh it looks like a snow shovel. I immediately removed the french tip guides and viola! I'm not crazy about the moon shape here but I'm loving the color combo! Whoo Who!
I almost put a layer of Sally Hansen Diamond Strength, Glass Slipper (white flakies) over the top but decided to leave it as is.
Have you tried a half moon design? Thoughts?
