Mid-week Manicure: Glequin Half-Moon

Currently listening to: Without You by Glee

Hello dear readers,

As the title suggests, today I have a glequin half-moon manicure to show you:

 

 The base is a no-name, no-number shade from a Polish brand called Glamour.  I bought it in Poland three years ago for about 50p but judging from how much is still in the bottle, I haven't used it often.  The quality isn't great (not a surprise considering the price) and the colour isn't as bright as the bottle suggests so I think this will be the last time I use it.


 After creating my half-moon manicure, I painted my nails with my top coat and applied silver glequins (pieces of glitter) to the edge of each half-moon using a small wooden stick.


 I love how effective this design is, especially considering how simple it was to create.  I can't wait to try it again using different colours.


What do you think girls?  How do you incorporate glequins into your nail designs?

Bye for now,
Laura
