Last week’s challenge on NAN was half moons. I was having a bit of a block with nail art generally, and decided on this design the day after the prompt was posted. I quite liked how it turned out. But then forgot to post it, for so long in fact that the next prompt had already gone up. Doh! But if you are looking for a quick and easy way to create some Half Moon nail art, this is perfect.
I’ve never been a big fan of striping tape, mostly because I never really got the hang of it. It never leaves the clean lines I am hoping for, it’s really fiddly and forget about using the tape itself in a design. I find it always lifts and peels off the nail, despite top coat. But, because Fabiana set it as a challenge on Nail Art Nation, it’s back for one time only. I paired it with pretty polishes to make myself feel better, aka Holographic Lines.
This design was part of the Maniswap Circle on Instagram, organised by glacewing (Angela) and natasha_dauncey (Natasha). I recreated noregrets4life_nails (Danielle) who did this Cyber Punk Samurai design. I was recreating it in cornflower blue to make Electric Punk Samurai. The Maniswap Circle specifies a colour each time to use.
This weekend, lots of nail art addicts are getting together to create Rainbow Pride Nails for Orlando. This community is so good at coming together and reacting to a crisis, and I am really proud to be a part of it. If you can, please consider donating to a fund for the families of the victims.
