Purple Halfmoon Gradient

Hi everybody!  Hope your hump day is coming along nicely!

I have a pretty purple halfmoon to share with you today.  I am loving this manicure!  The contrast of the different purple shades is like WOW in real life! I hope I captured some of it’s WOW in my pics. 🙂


I started out with two coats of a medium purple called No Hard Feelings by Sally Hansen Hard as Nails.  I borrowed it from my mom since it was just so pretty and I don’t have a shade like this one.  I don’t know how Sally made this purple muted and bright all at once…I just love it!   When my purple base was dry (the next day hehe) I used some nail guide stickers to tape off my nail in preparation of a halfmoon design.  Then I used a makeup sponge to do a gradient with Sinful Colors Dream On and Revlon Charming.  When I removed my tape I was stunned at how vivid the Sinful Colors neon magenta came out.  Then after adding some glossy seche vite topcoat it really came to life!  I love how neons look so great on their own and then you topcoat them and they look even better!

This design is so simple, clean and cool looking.  I would love to try this with different color combos too.  Teals and greens would look so hot!


Talk to you soon!  Oh and here’s a reminder of our themes for our OMD Nail Art Challenge.  Will you be joining us in July 2013?  I sure hope so!!! July is right around the corner and it will be record-breaking fun!!  Email me at typojax77@aol.com if you have any questions at all!
