Nail Look for Holidays: SpectaculART Half Moon




 
Hello dears! How are you starting the week?
I've tried to reproduce the nails the model was wearing for the Catrice SpectaculART Collection. For this manicure I have used Catrice Shanghai (gold) from the LE Big City Life collection, and Revel the Red from the SpectaculART collection. The picture above does not show the true colour , I've taken that one under dimmed natural light.


The second picture is more colour accurate, and was taken when the sun eventually decided to show up, but I had to continue with my life meanwhile, so you will excuse the slight tip wear :)


This mani didn't came out as I've imagined. In fact I started with a gold coat ino rder to apply the pink above without covering the half moon area. I tried this with a free hand technique (yes, French guides would have been better if only I had actually found them in my messy packed-unpacked world). As my first intention didn't work out, and I was not going to start over (lazy girl), I just applied the gold polish in the half moon area trying very hard not to mess the whole thing up. I think it worked (well not perfectly) quite decently.



Here is the Catrice picture, that I took from their site.
You can click to enlarge all the pictures in my blog, but then you'll find a lot more flaws!!! You're warned, lol!

So, what do you think of half moon manicures? too old fashion? Do you prefer ruffian manis?
Love,
Nati

  3. Hi Natalia, too old fashioned? You kiddin' me :-) I find it very elegant and very appropriate for a Holiday Dinner. And you are very gifted, I could never ever paint anything freehanded that would not look like the drawing of a toddler LOL
