Day 2 - A Classic

6:00:00 PM

Did you expect me, the queen of nail art, to do a classic manicure without going over the top crazy?? I can't do simple, so leaving a splotch of color plain is by far one of the hardest things for me to do.

For this mani, I originally was going to do Charming Chevrons - which was my lovely Charming by Revlon polish (a gorgeous lavender), with Sally Hansen Celeb City Chevron tips.  Sadly, the colors looked horrible together, and the mani failed.

I went out, purchased the binder stickers, and decided to do a half moon manicure, with a The Little Canvas twist.  Here are the results...(please excuse the water droplets on some of the nails, it was raining lol)

Colors Used:
  • Sinful Colors - Black on Black
  • Sinful Colors - Snow Me White
  • Sally Hansen - Celeb City
I have to say, half moon manicures are not too hard!!! With that little sticker, it comes out perfectly.  Sure, it was a little difficult placing the sticker, but I have had more difficult times with scotch tape.  I found out that you must make the sticker less sticky before placing it on the paint, otherwise it will chip off the polish.  When the nails dried, I added the zebra details and the silver stripe with a tooth pick and finished with a top coat.

Overall though, I'm not too sure how I liked this manicure.  When I first did it, I loved it, thought it looked so neat.  The next day, I felt Gothic with the black.  I typically use my black polish for detailing, and really never this much of my nail is covered.

Have you ever attempted the half moon?? I will be doing more of these with numerous colors in the next few weeks.  Especially since I have 500 of the stickers :)

As a reminder, the SNAAARKM challenge is....
