31DC2012: Day 18 - Half Moon

Hello there! :) How are you today? I'm happy because my boyfriend has a week off work so I will actually have someone to hang out with this week! Haha! Less time to do my nails but that's okay :)

Today I have a half moon mani to show you. Well it isn't a traditional half moon mani but I think it still counts. ;)
I did more of a "half moon reversed chevron mani". LOL. I've seen this look on some blogs and Instagram and really wanted to try it! Most girls use tape to do the triangle at the cuticle area but I honestly couldn't be bothered waiting for my base to dry, so I freehanded it! Up close it's far from perfect but from afar, it looks alright! :) I didn't even notice until I started editing my photos that I smudged the orange polish on my pinky nail! :( It's really not noticable AT ALL in real life! I just looked at my nails up close to try and see the smudge and I honestly can barely see it. I guess the bright lighting I use for my photos just enhances it.

For the pink base I used China Glaze - Dance Baby from the Spring 2012 collection, and for the half moon chevron I used Essie - Fear or Desire from the Summer 2012 collection. I don't think I'll ever wear this orange shade as a full mani but I've used it for nail art a few times now and I really like it! I'm sure this colour would look great on other girls but I'm just not fond of orange on my skin tone. I don't think I can pull it off. :P

As you may have noticed, I shortened my nails even more. I'm not really sure why. I've just been looking at gorgeous short nails and once I start filing, I can't stop. LOL. I shortened them a little more today so they're a little shorter than yesterday's post. I don't think I'll be going any shorter than this though. I only have about 2mm of free edge on each nail right now so I really can't physically go much shorter without it being super painful. To be honest I don't hate them this short. I didn't like the length of my nails in my previous posts but I don't mind them this length. I'd be lying if I said I didn't miss my long nails though.

I really like this color combo! I agree with you on orange...I'm not one to usually wear a bright orange by itself!
