My Mani ~ Neon & Neutral Half Moon Mani

Hey lovelies!  I hope you had a fabulous weekend! I recently picked up these 2 shades at Sephora, and inspired by their spring ad showcasing the same mani, I *had* to recreate it! {More after the break}

You'll need:

  • Sephora by OPI 'Neutral Beauty'
  • Sephora by OPI 'What Aura Gonna Wear?' {I cannot find it online but I bought it in the store}
  • Reinforcement labels or French Tip Nail Guides {I ended up using both, as you'll see below}

First I painted my nails with a thick coat of the bright pink, and allowed it to dry thoroughly.  Then I applied the reinforcement stickers {I actually put them up too high, in hindsight, but only because my nail beds are so wide.} and then painted the nude color above the sticker.

Sorry for the crappy pic, it's from my iPhone.  But I had to use the french nail tip guides in order to get the arc lower.  I repainted another coat of the nude above the sticker.  When the polish is dry, peel the stickers off and finish up with a coat of Seche Vite.

Finished product!  Looks rad, huh?

I love this mani, and I have a feeling that I will be doing it lots more this spring and summer!
