Week 6 - Halfmoon Manicure

I've been wanting to try this one, but never thought of it when painting my nails. I did as I usually do when choosing polish for the challenge.... I pull out my cup (originally for candy) with all my swatches and pull out the ones sticking up and the nail wheels. These are the colors that is not yet posted as swatches on the blog.... It's A LOT!

 At least I found the gold from Depend that I showed you a couple of days ago and I also found Forest (719) from Isadora that has a gold shimmer in it. As I was researching this look, I found that most use reenforcement stickers (for reinforcing punched holes in paper). So I went to my local office-supply store and didn't find any, but instead I found these....
Just plain white color coding dots.... I use the smaller kind to put on top of my Depend bottles to be able to see what number they are. I figured these would work as good. Well, they probably worked as good and the colors went great together, but I'm not liking the look.....Haven't the faintest idea why, but I think it's coming off real soon. This is how it looks:

A bit uneven due to the taping but otherwise OK. The green in the Isadora polish came out a bit more than I expected, but it was also fine! I guess I'll be showing you a complete swatch of Forest on it's own soon.

Hope you enjoyed!
