31DC2018 Half Moons

Tuesday, 18 September 2018

Half Moon manis are among some of my least favourite manis to do.  I have seen some really good ones on Instagram and Pinterest etc but I hate them on my nails.  As you can imagine, I cringe each year having to do this prompt but every year I suck it up and do it.  Today's mani definitely came with it's own set of challenges.  My first attempt, my base wasn't dry enough and the vinyls pulled some of the base up (not completely but enough that it looked bad).  My second attempt I knocked a bunch of nails so had to start over....and then finally my third and final attempt!

For this mani I used China Glaze We Run This Beach and Pretty Serious Cosmetics Absence.


  1. I feel exactly the same as you. I love them on other people but just not n me. I really really love this and now I think that maybe I should try this. I won't though because I'm pretty sure I won't like it on me.

    How frustrating that you had to do your nails so many times! Especially for a prompt you don't look forward to as it is!

    1. I'm so glad I'm not the only one who doesn't like half moon manis. I also don't understand why they look so good on some people and not so good on others. It makes no sense!
