Manicure Monday - Bright Half Moon

Hey there! Welcome to Monday ;-) How was your weekend? Probably not long enough because I know mine wasn't. The only thing that's keeping me going is the thought of my vacation starting on Wednesday - I cannot wait!! Anyway, I know it's been a minute since I've shared a Manicure Monday so let's get right to it. This week's No-Chip Manicure also happens to be my first successful half moon manicure. It took a lot of trial and error to get this look right but I finally got it together.

There are several ways to create this look but I went the nontraditional route and used circle stickers for my outline. Of course you can also use page reinforcers, circle bandaids or french manicure guides like normal people...whatever floats your boat. Just make sure you let your first coat of color completely dry before applying stickers and such. 

What do you think? Have you ever rocked a half moon manicure?

XOXO,

    I saw this Gabe and immediately thought of you. It is a manicure wrap. Just stick them on and shape it up and bam done for the week. No chips. I hope you find this useful
