Day 5: Half Moons

Welcome back everyone! I hope everyone had a great weekend! I managed to survive B's birthday, and I am now officially the mother of a preschooler and a toddler! Where does the time go? Even though I'm sad my baby is no longer a baby, I'm glad to have it over, so I can stop stressing about it, haha.

Before I get into my Challenge Day 5 mani, I want to say a quick Happy Belated Veterans Day, and a huge THANK YOU to all Veterans and families of Veterans. Thank you for the sacrifices you make so that my children and I can enjoy all the freedoms this country has to offer.


Today is Day 5 of the November 10-Day nail art challenge, something that I LOVE - half moons! You can check out my first half moon post here.

I had so many ideas for half moon combos floating around my head, but decided on something a little different. A matte flakie half moon!

 For this, I used a base of China Glaze Liquid Leather, then I carefully dabbed on UP Colors Banho de Mar. I waffled a bit on the next part. To mattify or not to mattify? I decided to just go for it, and used NYC Matte Me Crazy over the whole thing, and I am so glad I did. It really changes the look of the mani!

I hope you enjoyed this mani, I know I did!

Can you believe we are already half-way through this challenge? Day 6 will be Inspired by Anothers' Nails. Off to scour the internet for inspiration!
