Monday Mani: Half Moon

I'm back to doing Monday Manis again after taking a break for the 24 Days of Christmas Challenge.  At PAA, we voted on doing half moon manis.

I'm not a super big fan of these, but I did vote for this one because I wanted to try it again since I wasn't a big fan of my last one. I'm still not a big fan of the half moon (on myself at least!), but I like this one a lot!

For this mani, I did a base of Rimmel Wild Orchid. I love the Rimmel Pros. They have great brushes. They are big like OPI brushes but rounded so I can put them on nicely.

The glitter is Milani One Coat Glitter Purple Gleam. It really needs 1 thick coat or 2 thin ones, but it still dries very nicely.

Look at this glitter!

Finally, I used Essie Matte About You over the whole thing. I couldn't decided if I like it matte or shiny better (I should have take comparison photos), but ended up just sticking with matte.
