My First Half Moon Mani with China Glaze OMG

I actually got inspired to do this mani because of the polish group I follow on Facebook. Yesterday they had the Monday mani challenge and half moons were the challenge. I have never attempted this kind of mani before but I had all the things I needed for it so I decided to give it a go. I used the circle reinforcer to make the actually half moon. I started off with a base of China Glaze OMG then laid down my circle reinforcers and then painted on a quick coat of Wet n Wild Black Creme. To make the half moons crisp and clean you must remove the circle reinforcer off very quickly after painting the black.
I have to say this is one of the easiest and quickest manis I have done. I also have to say that this is one of my favorite manis of all time. I can't stop staring at my nails. They look so long and dare I say..sexy! I think this was a very cool combo and now that I am confident in doing half moons I will be sure to try out again very soon.

  4. @joycelyncircle reinforcers are those things you use in school that are used to fix notebook paper when you tear the hole on a sheet. Maybe I will have to do a tutorial. They are found in the schools supply section and the ones I have are multi colored.
