4. Half Moon

Finally getting into the swing of the Plasma Plays Challenge!!

Here is number four...

4 Execute a half moon manicure!

This picture is much more colour accurate

So I did this completely free hand and it was my first ever time trying the half moon manicure.  And to be honest I think I did a pretty good job!  If I was to do it again I would probably try using manicure guides to get a cleaner line but it was okay free handed if you didn't look too closely!

I applied a coat of Rimmel base coat, one coat of Gleaming Gold by Avon and two coats of Top Turquoise by Models Own.  I then applied 2true top coat.  I really liked this colour combo and after I had done this mani (a few weeks ago now) I started seeing it everywhere!  I'm not sure if i subconsciously picked up on it before or maybe I'm slightly psychic but I've seen a few gold and turquoise half moon manis these past few weeks!

All in all I liked this mani.  Yes the lines could have been cleaner but with practise I should be able to sort that :)


  1. You did a great job! The color combination is fantastic! I wish I could do this too!

  2. It looks great! I love your colour combination

    1. Thanks :) I love these colours together too :)
