Good evening ladies! I meant to have this up earlier today, but had to do some homework before being able to "play" tonight, so here I am, posting late again.
Day 2 of the Challenge is already upon us, I can't believe it! Today's theme is half moons, and I have to say, from what I have seen already, the ladies joining me in this Challenge are pretty awesome at half moon manis. Mine didn't turn out as crisp as I had hoped - sometimes using those hole reinforcements is trickier than it looks.
For this I used Julep Annie and Brandt, both from the Trina Turk Fall 2012 collection. These are both untried for me, and I love the look of the two of them together! And believe it or not, they were both opaque in one coat, which is even better! :)
I didn't get these originally with my Julep Maven box, but I love these more than the colours I did get, which were Gunta and Popova. I have already swapped Popova because it was too close to Emilie which I already had.
Do you like half moon manis? Do you like to have a bold contrast between the colours?
Love these colors together! <3ReplyDelete
Beautiful!!! :D I love how you did this in black and blue :DReplyDelete

Teresa, you need to post a picture on my Facebook wall (www.facebook.com/ericasnailsandmore), and link up either a blog post if you have a blog, or your Facebook picture if you don't have a blog as per the e-mail I sent out on January 25th.Delete
I am really digging the combo you used!ReplyDelete
Very cute <3ReplyDelete
This looks good! I have a hard time with half moon manis, as well. Those edges just don't want to stay down!ReplyDelete
Love the black and blue together - really striking combination! I find the hole reinforcers really awkward to deal with so I've found another way that works for me (obviously not in my entry as I didn't go for the uniform line). I use a dotting tool and a very short striping brush - might have to blog about it at the end of the challenge ;)ReplyDelete
Oh yes, please do :) Every time I use a brush to do the half moon I always make the moon too small :(Delete
