31DC2016 – Half-moons

Many times, I start a manicure with a certain design in mind and I end up with a completely different design. This is one of those times when I really wanted to keep it simple: a half-moon manicure with negative space half-moons and a gold outlining of the line between the blue and the negative space. I also wanted to try out this new blue polish from CND Vinylux called Denim Patch (review coming as soon as the 31DC2016 is over, which is kind of soon) which looks much dustier and cooler in person than in my pictures. After painting the manicure the way that I wanted to paint it I just got this idea of continuing with the stripes and I went on and on until I ended up with these stripes! Then I added the big clear stones in the middle of the half-moons!

This is not a manicure I would wear that often (maybe for a night or so) but it was kind of fun to play around with!

    Jag tycker det blev riktigt coolt! Det får mig att tänka på gamla indiantempel och Indiana Jonesfilmer, av någon anledning. Och av en slump så målade jag precis naglarna med Denim Patch och är mycket förtjust i det!

    Åh wow, varje nagel ser ut som ett smycke! Jag skulle personligen få panik på stenarna, skulle nog inte ens klara en kväll, men det är läckert på bild!

    The big clear stones looks so elegant and fancy and I think the design is perfect too!
