Easter: Half Moon Manicure

5 years ago

If you follow me on Instagram (@marleeeney) than you most likely have seen this manicure already.

On Saturday, the day before Easter, I decided to paint my nails. I knew I wanted to wear pastels but I didn`t know what color. I had a hard time choosing between pinks, blues, and purples. In the end I chose to wear both blue and purple. Initially I was gonna just do the usual main color with an accent nail but then remember that I purchased reinforcement stickers to try <strong>half-moon manicures</strong>. Half moon manicures are a big nail trend this year and I love it because I always have a hard time figuring out what colors I want to wear. LOL

<strong>Half Moon Manicure steps</strong>
<em>Step 1</em>: Apply a base coat; I used <strong>Barielle</strong> Professional Advanced Nail Fortifier with Argan Oil Pro.
<em>Step 2</em>: Apply 1-2 coats of the half moon color and wait for it to completely dry; I used <strong>Essie</strong> Borrowed and Blue.
<em>Step 3</em>: Apply the REIS (reinforcement sticker) to the base of the nail; Tip ~ Cut the REIS in half so that you`re not wasting it and stick the REIS on your skin before you apply on the nail to loosen the glue so that it doesn`t pick up the polish.
<em>Step 4</em>: Apply 1-2 coats of the bottom half of the moon and wait to dry; I used <strong>Essie</strong> Nice is Nice.
<em>Step 5</em>: Apply Top Coat to seal and shine the manicure; I used <strong>Julep</strong> Fast Dry Top Coat.</dl></dt>

<strong>Do you like the half-moon manicure trend? What is your favorite nail trend of 2012? Do you have any of these polishes I use?</strong>
>> This was actually the second time I did the half-moon manicure. I decided to post this first because Easter recently passed and it would be weird to post this up after all the other manicures I`ve done and have neglected to post. XD
