Teal Tuesday: Half Moon

Happy Tuesday!!  This weeks Tealicure is a half moon.  Yet ANOTHER technique I haven't tried.  Go figure.  This group keeps me trying new things all the time.  I have seen the half moon done and it seems very easy.  I just didn't love the look.  Hence why I hadn't tried it.  Well, it was now time.  I wanted to do something I could wear every day and not have it be too "out there".  I have seen some crazy nails!!  I also wanted to add a little bling, so if course, got out some glitter.  The technique is easy.  All you need are some page reinforcements.  You can get them at the dollar store.  Just place them near the cuticle where you want the curve to be and paint.  I suggest removing each sticker as you paint each finger.  You will get a more crisp line.  If you wait too long, the nail polish will  start to dry on the sticker and when removed, you will get some polish pulling and end up with a jagged line.  I hope that made sense.  
To add the glitter, I just used a large dotting tool.  
Here is my half moon mani

Base Coat:  Rejuvacote
Tip Color:  A England Saint George (1 coat)
Glitter:  Pure Ice Beware
Top Coat:  Seche Vite

Can I just say that I am loving this mani!  I have been wanting to try this A England for a while and I think I made a good choice using it for the mani.

Half Moon Mani's, are they for you?
