31DC2013: Day 18 - Half Moons

Hey there guys!! I've been having a wonderful day and I hope you are too!! Half moons are something I don't give a lot of thought to, I'm sure there's some awesome way to wear them that I'm not thinking of. I was inspired by MakeUp Savvy's Dreamcatcher nails, I've seen many but I really liked hers, they've got an eye-catching simplicity.

I really like the way they look, and the placed glitter, I find placing glitter really fun. I think there's generally a fun quality about this manicure.
I got the colour scheme from the album, The Other Side Of Zero (a seriously AMAZING album, I love her music so much) by Elizabeth & The Catapult (like really, her music is some of my favourite ever). And she has a song on that album called "Dreamcatcher" and that's also amazing so the colour scheme made sense to me.

It also fits the half moon theme great, they were very easy to paint, some half moon shapes then some lines. I wanted some subtle glitter too, I'm a fan of the subtle glitter here but I didn't have an orange glitter so that nail looks more busy but I like that, kind of like a really windy day with leaves blowing past (salmon, blue and silver leaves).

I apologise for my cuticles, autumn coldness is taking it's toll on them

  1. I would of never been able to think of these, these are my favorites of today's entries!

  2. Cool half moons, great idea for it too! Very creative!

  3. Woo, dreamcatcher nails! They feel very eco. Hahaha! It's kinda relaxing in that sense. Though your colours are vibrant with glittery elements, they still feel rather soothing. :D It's all good! Great idea for a halfmoon themed! :DD Ohh, sad cuticles! :( Be sure to keep moisturising them with cuticle oil and handcreams! Looks painful >.< Take care!

    1. Hahaha thanks!! Can't stop myself from the brights or glitters. Urgh I've been moisturising every evening but this still happens -_- It's all good now though!! :)
