31DC2014 Day 18 - Pinstripe Half Moons...and Another Giveaway!

Hey there!  For Day 18 of the 31 Day Challenge, we have another technique I've never tried before...half moons!  At least I've never tried traditional half moons, paper reinforcement and all.  For these I used A England Bridal Veil and jazzed them up with some pinstripes and some glitter.  And at the end of this post I'm also sharing another Facebook giveaway that I'm involved with so, if you like free stuff, click "read more" to make sure you don't miss out!



Like I said I used circular paper reinforcements to guide my half moons.  I placed them over some Trind Nail Repair and for some reason a fair bit of the nail repair coat lifted when I removed the reinforcement.  Weird.  But before I removed the reinforcements I decided to use A England Bridal Veil to give my poor bottle of Camelot a break.  Bridal Veil is another creamy black (like Camelot) from A England but it has some scattered holographic bits in there.


Something about the slightly greyed effect that the holo adds to the black made me think of a pinstripe suit so I added some thin lines using my white striper.  I love those Stripe Rite stripers from Sally's.  I can't draw a straight line without them!


I also added some glequins.  I thought this added a bit more and had the added bonus of covering up any imperfections in my half moon lines!  And yes, this is the glitter that photobombed my Rubik's Cube nails.


And finally, the giveaway!  Another group of us on Facebook have put together a giveaway with three winners.  With an awesome graphic courtesy of Ashley from Plump and Polished.


Each winner will receive a $40 gift certificate from Harlow & Co.Llarowe or Sally Magpies.  This giveaway is open until September 30th so enter soon.
