31 Day Challenge Day 18 - Half Moons

Hey guys!

Continuing with the challenge, today is half moon day! I had a really awesome idea for this and the next challenge day but, as always, it turned to crap. Then it turned cool again by sheer coincidence.

I've always wanted to try a half moonicure (lol) but I never really got around to it for some reason, so I'm glad the challenge made me do it because I loved the result AND got to use two untrieds! I started with a base of China Glaze Stone Cold (which is awesome for tape manis since it dries so quickly), applied the reinforcement stickers and added China Glaze Elephant Walk. It looked pretty nice but still needed something, so I added two black rhinestones.




I'm really happy with how this turned out! It looks edgy and chic and totally season-appropriate. Well, for those of you who have seasons. We just have "HOLY MOTHER OF GOD ITS SO HOT" and "Oh, still hot, but not that bad".

    1. I always have the same problem! Don't want to do a combo I've seen a million times but can't think of anything new. In this case, it was just a happy accident that I had both polishes on my table :D

  11. This is gorgeous!! I am finding myself really drawn to greys and dusty blues lately. Now I really wish I had picked up elephant walk! Gah!

    1. Elephant Walk is awesome, but you can get the new gray in the ChG Halloween collection (Immortal I think is the name) and its a cool gray with a nicer shimmer!
