How To : Gold & Blue Half-Moon Manicure

half-moon nails, manicure

Everyone and their mother knows how to do a half-moon manicure.  It’s so last year darling!  But I’m a late starter to most things in life.  I was the last girl in my class to wear my first bra (damn my flat pancake Chinese bosom genes!) but that’s another story…

For my half-moon manicure, I randomly chose the colours gold and blue – courtesy of FACE OF AUSTRALIA Molten Metallics Gold and China Glaze First Mate.

1.  Paint nails in base colour of gold.

2.  Wait until nails are completely dry and then stick on some ring reinforcement stickers to form the half-moon shape.

3.  Paint the non-half-moon part blue.

4.  Wait till the nails are dry and then peel back slowly to reveal your very own half-moon manicure!

Cue werewolf howl – “Owwwwwwwwwww!”  

(Okay, my half-moon mani isn’t purrr-fect but it’s not bad for a first-timer eh?!)

Do you like half-moon manicures?  What other colour combo would be good for this?  Tweet or FB  me a picture if you DIY too.  I’d love to see!  (My Twitter and FB)  And happy Saturday!  Taking a Sunday break tomorrow so I will catch you all on Monday *wink plus smiley face*

FACE OF AUSTRALIA Barbados Nail Enamel Let’s Go Scuba Diving

After having a fabulous Molten Metallics nail polish collection, FACE OF AUSTRALIA have done it again!  Their new (yet-to-be-released but coming very soon) Barbados collection has won my heart!  I was blessed to get my mitts on 3 of these sexy babies (thanks to MBBE 2011) – Let’s Go Scuba Diving, Orange You Glad You Came? and Bright Lights, Pink City.

Today I’m showing you the swatch of Let’s Go Scuba Diving.  I have no complaints about the formula as it applied easily with two coats.

Let’s Go Scuba Diving is a unique shade in my nail polish collection.  It’s an aquamarine shade with emerald and blue shimmy shimmer.  Truly breathtaking!

I can’t swim to save myself so I won’t be scuba diving anytime soon…but with FACE OF AUSTRALIA’s mesmerising Let’s Go Scuba Diving on my nails, I can dream!

Of course, I’ll be showing you the swatches of the other nail polishes – Orange You Glad You Came? and Bright Lights, Pink City.  Which one would you like to see first?
