I had a completely different post planned for today (skincare) but had to reschedule for next Monday (it will 100% be posted next Monday!), so I scrambled to get this one together before midnight. Because I’m sure you all are tired of me saying “Makeup Monday…on Tuesday!” It just doesn’t have the same ring to it.

I was inspired by these Kate Spade shoes that I posted here, so I chose a gold and turquoise combo. I thought of adding the black detail, but really liked it without it. Maybe next time!


Of course, I’m not claiming I invented this method of half moon manicures – it’s been around forever. But if you haven’t done it before, I also included a step by step tutorial. I hope you enjoy!

Here’s what I used: paper reinforcements (found in the office aisle of most stores), Orly Rubberized Basecoat, Ginger + Liz Got My Groove Back, MAC Salad Dressed, Out The Door fast drying top coat.
