CND Shellac Nail Art - Rosebud with Blackpool and Cocoa Moons
Evening all! It's been a while! I still have a small manicure backlog which I start to clear and then other things come up. So while I remember, I wanted to quickly show you a new Shellac idea I tried out on my dear friend Jene around 3 weeks ago.
She flashed her issue of Vogue at me when I popped over to do her nails for her and she was set on wanting some moons. She ideally wanted some pastel shades, but with Shellac's lacking in that department, the closest we found were Cocoa and Rosebud.
So I applied two coats of Rosebud for the base colour and then we randomly applied a black moon, in Blackpool, to three fingers and the rest got Cocoa. To get the smooth outline, I used some french manicure stickers but at the base instead of the tip of the nails. The moons did need two coats, which meant after the first curing I had to apply the second coat free-hand, but this wasn't too tricky once I had the basic outline.
Let me know what you think.
