Why I haven't been posting...

Accidentally had a door slam on my hand at work a couple months ago.  The bad nail is growing out and a new one is trying to come it.  It's all just very gross.  So I have a wiggly damaged nail waiting to grow out and fall off.  Until that moment comes, I can't really do much with it but put a band-aid over it to hide the ugly.

I guess I can try to use my left hand to paint on my right... I'm just not very ambidextrous.

Half Moon

Another simple look for your nails.

You will need:
  • Le Chat Ultra Bond BaseCoat
  • Color Club Smoke and Mirrors
  • Essie in Turquoise & Caicos
  • Le Chat Fast Dry TopCoat 

1. Paint a base coat and then a silver polish.  Even though you won't see most of the silver in the end, keep it even or else, the next coat will look uneven.

2. Start with your first stroke in the middle of the nail but leave a small gap between the cuticle and where you start. Use your cuticle as a guide to where you should place your brush.  I have a little bit of a more square shaped cuticle so I'll have to round off my painting.

3.  You should get something like this.  It's not even yet because it's your first coat. Once it's settled a little, go over with the 2nd coat.

4.  Now you should have this.  Go over it with a top coat.

Happy New Year!
