Cozy Sweater

Nothing to Disclose

Good evening! Today's prompt in the 31 Day Challenge is "half moons." I love half moon manis on other people but I've never been very fond of them on myself. They just don't look right on me for some reason. But I decided I was going to try something I've never tried before and really push myself - freehanding the half moons. And then I decided to take it even further and make the curved stripes extend all the way down my nail. It ended up reminding me of a cozy sweater! Not that I get to wear those here, in Arizona, but a girl can dream!

I started off with a base of Elevation Polish Cerro Torre 2 (nude) and then worked from the base to the tip with my striping brush. I am quite pleased with how this turned out for my first attempt at so many curved lines! I am not usually the best at working freekand and creating curves and circles. Maybe I just need more practice!

Polishes I used in this mani are (from base to tip):

Elevation Polish The Arches (rust)
Elevation Polish Cerro Torre 2 (nude)
Zoya Louise (brown)
Zoya Dree (green)
Pahlish The Wish of a Golden Fish (orange holo)
Zoya Ryan (blue)

Thanks for reading and happy polishing! ♥
