My next experiment was a version of the french manicure, the so-called half moon. This is a reverse version where the bottom is left "nude" or in a contrasting color to the rest of the nail. This might sound very strange and I was skeptical at first but pictures of Dita Von Teese rocking this look made me want to try it out!!
I started out by cutting up and putting 3 ring stickers on the base of my nails. Then just applied 4 (!) strokes of Wet N'Wild nail polish in gold;
|4 coats it took to get this color opaque... |
This polish was recycled and replaced with an OPI! =)
Then I let it dry and put on new stickers a little bit over the gold before I painted over
with H&M - Espresso Me;
|I just love the Retro effect the Gold and Dark brown creates!|
Definetly doing this one again!!
This tecnique should also be good for layering =)
