31DC2013 Day 18; Matte half moon nail art with gradient

First I didn't understand what a half moon was but soon realized that it's the same as a very high smiley for a funky french. I knew I wanted to make some sort of a gradient and also soon realized that the thing I wanted to do had been done by The Nailasaurus just to mention one of all who'd done it. That didn't stop me though and I decided to use pastel purple and gray as my two colors (I really like having gray in nail art's now days). Since I don't have a template or round stickers of some kind I free handed my half moon and then sponged like crazy, it didn't end upp to be my best gradient ever but it's like that some days. Instead of the old trusty Seche Vite I decided that this should be matte and I really liked the matte end result so here you have it;








Polishes used:
HM - matte top coat
Kleancolor - Pastel Purple

HM nail polish - Miss Stone Heart

  1. Jag tycker det matta är häftigt, men jag är inte så förtjust i halvmånemanikyrer. Annars gillar jag färgkombon och det matta. :-)

  3. Jättesnygg färgkombination, och tjusig upphottning av temat! Grått är ju en himla bra färg, egentligen!

  4. Lovely colour combo. I love some grey and pink together. I like how you explain half moon:a very high smiley french! haha. I like half moon manicures because they're like the pre-history of nail art! I think that must have been pretty edgy for a 1940's girl to paint her nails red and half moon white to mimic the natural half moon in the roots of the nails :)

    1. Thank you! :D It's actually purple and not pink, but the purple really came out more like pink in these photos. I like half moons too and I didn't know that they're pre-history nail art. I can really imagine how edgy that kind of girl must have felt! :D

  5. Beautiful work Gelic! I love the colours together, makes me think of a warm wooly jumper in winter! I think you did great considering you didn't have any templates and your gradient is gorgeous. Grey is so under-rated! xx
