31 Day Nail Art Challenge: Day 18 - Half Moons

So I was trying something new today... and I wasn't totally happy with how it turned out... but I will not give up!! I really am loving this challenge hosted by Painting Outside the Lines, and I can't believe we are almost to the Inspiration section... it's going to be insane!!!

So, I have all these paper punches, because another hobby of mine is making greeting cards... I started to think that it was silly I hadn't put them into work on my nails! Here is the punch I used today...

I was thinking... scalloped half moons!!! So I punched some return address labels with it and had sticky, tiny scallops! Unfortunately, I used too much bling and it lost its effect. So next time I am going to use one blingy and one cream!!

I used China Glaze Prism as the base. It has some wonderful rainbow glitter in it, so I went off that and used Wet n Wild Bijou Blue. If I had used black, it would've been awesome... but I just used it yesterday and didn't want to be too redundant!!

Here it is in the shade... when it's enlarged, you can see the scallops a bit.

This idea isn't going away! I will be trying it again!

Be sure to head over to Painting Outside the Lines and check out the rest of the amazing entries for today!!!
