After a few days, I had minor tip wear. I didn't feel like removing my polish so I decided to attempt my first half moon manicure. This ended up to be a bit of a fail, but it was worth a shot. I started with regular old paper reinforcement stickers.
Pretty simple, right? After applying the stickers, I did two thin coats of Rescue Beauty Lounge Killa Red, an oxblood jelly polish. Then, I removed the stickers carefully as to not mess up the clean lines. This went smoothly for me. I was a bit surprised. I added a coat of Seche Vite on top.
The colors are too close to one another for this look. I should have used something with more contrast. I wish I could have captured the shimmer that Killa Red gained from German-icure. It was so pretty in real life.
I actually wore one of my favorite stretch rings with this look. What do you think?
I'll definitely try a half moon in the future, but I'll plan out the colors better. Just a shade or two darker and this would have been perfect.
