Hello there, how'd you get the half-moon to look so great?

Hi Ruby--I just painted it on top of the brown using a small, thin brush. The half moon itself has a layer of white underneath so I didn't have to use so many layers of the turquoise/aqua polish. Are you gonna try it? :)

I love using white as a base too! I would try it, but I don't have a steady hand for small stuff like that that half-moon. :\

Ooh, I guess it was! My friend showed me this pic on FB from the Beauty Addicts page (I hope they sourced it back to your site) and a couple of them wanted to see it in different color combos (this and the pink/black one). Thanks for the great idea! I checked out your blog too. Nice work, very inspiring! Keep up the good job :)

This is awesome. Which technique did you use to make the gradient so seamless?

Thanks! I used the sponging method from The Nailasaurus (http://www.thenailasaurus.com/2012/...). I sponged on the blue on the tips a couple of times first since it wasn't as opaque as I thought, then I sponged on the blue/brown gradient using the tutorial. I think the fact that they're both cremes also helped too. You should try it! :) P.S. Your make-up skills are impressive!
