Teal Tuesday: Half Moons

Hi Ladies.  Today's mani was done for the Teal Tuesday group on Facebook.  I was kinda on the fence about whether or not I liked the half moon technique, but after trying it, I decided that I like it.  It is quick and easy, and with the right color combo's, can make an awesome mani. 

This color combo was picked out by my fiance.  I never woulda thought to put orange and teal together but I think it works.

To get this look I painted the bottom half of my nail with 2 coats of Color Club Sparkle and Soar (the orange) and then painted on a smile line with Color Club Metamorphosis and filled in the rest of the nail.  Metamorphosis required 3 coats to make it opaque. Some people use reinforcement tabs to make the line for the half moon, but I didn't have any so I just freehanded it. 

I was surprised that I liked how this turned out.  Now I'm gonna have to do this again with some other colors.  I see neon in my future :)

Thanks for checkin' me out.  Happy polishing!
