Today on the blog I have this month's mani swap to share with you! I love doing mani swaps because it pushes me to try things I might not otherwise try. This month I was paired with a super talented nail artist by the name of @manicallypolishious on Instagram. She recently did a neon green half moon dotticure and I fell in love. I have never tried half moons before so I was pretty nervous. Let me show you how it turned out!
Our originals are on the left. She recreated my matte flakie mani and totally NAILED it. <3
Here's the solo shot of mine. She used green iridescent glitter as an embellishment but I didn't have anything like it so I went with a black rose charm. I didn't have any vinyls to use for this mani so I freehanded the half moon and cleaned up the line using acetone and a small brush.
So I fell so hard for this mani but the rose charm was too big for me to actually wear, so I removed it and matted all of my nails. I actually left this on for almost 3 full days! Can you believe it?
And just for shiggles, another few pictures of this mani:
Yes, I was taking pictures of my nails in the car. You know you do it too! #dontjudgeme haha.
Anyway, now that I've shown you too many pictures of the same mani, I can ask - what do you think of this mani? What's a nail art technique that you'd like to try but never have?
