manic MANI MONDAY: RINGS OF SATURN

Photobucket
I know we are all well aware of the half moon trend- that has been around for a while. As much as I love it, I've never actually done my own nails this way. I figured there was no better way to wear my new favorite Julep colors- Meryl and Oscar. I named these nails "Rings of Saturn" because well, that is what the gold part in the middle reminded me of. Check out how I created them below!

I started with a gray color. This is Julep's Meryl.

I took reinforcement labels, cut one side, and placed them where I wanted the half moon shape to start. For me, it was about 1/3 of the way down.

I then covered the open nail with a gold glitter polish. I used Julep's Oscar.

I then removed the reinforcement labels. You could stop here and cover with a top coat but I wanted to add a little something more.

Photobucket
When your nails have dried, (Julep polish dries so very quickly) place another reinforcement label a little over the gold polish. The part of the gold polish that is covered by this label will be a gold stripe in the end.

Cover the open nail with navy polish. I used Sally Hansen's Navy Baby.

Photobucket
Remove label.

Photobucket
Repeat on all nails.

Photobucket
Cover with a clear polish and enjoy your freshly painted nails!
