31DC2013: Day Eighteen - Half Moons

Half Moons for Day eighteen of the 31 Day Challenge. For this manicure I used Rimmel Purple Reign as the base polish. After my nails were dry, I used hole reinforcers (like the ones in the link) to tape off the half moons at the base of the nails. Then I sponged on a gradient with the purple and Max Factor Ivory.

Lastly, I added the hexagonal nail glitter to outline each half moon with a toothpick. You can use a little clear polish to pick up the glitter on to the toothpick. Then lay it on the still tacky nail (painted with a coat of clear polish in this case) where you want to place it. Finished off with a coat of top coat.
I really like these nails - they look so festive. They are definitely good for special occasions or the festival season!
