A Moonicure Experiment

The pictures speak for themselves! Here is a quick and easy new way to do a manicure- opps! It's actually called a moonicure... Ooh fancy!

I did this very very fast and did not apply a base or top coat, although I definitely would if this were more than an experiment. I think this would be a great way to extend the wear of an existing nail color, since color tends tend to chip at the tips first :)

Hope you like it!

Base coat- Sally Hansen, Made You Blush. Make sure this is COMPLETELY dry before moving on.

Cut Round Labels into quarters:

Place them on nails. Make sure to secure edges for a tight fit to create a seamless line.

Paint over with a second color. Covergirl, Luxw Lilac.

Peel off labels when the color is fairly dry- allow at least 15 minutes, depending on how long it takes the color to dry. Pulling labels off too early will result in a mess.


Next time I will make smaller moons- these are a bit dramatic for me!
