No More War Halfmoon Matte Manicure

Hi guys! I am traveling today so this is a scheduled post. I am not actually sitting here posting this! I am on my way to New York state to see my family! YAY! But I have pics of nails for you!

This was a mani I did last week. After a day of wearing Rescue Beauty Lounge - No More War I wanted to do some sort of halfmoon mani to it. I bought circular reinforce stickers for loose-leaf paper, and was ready to go!

I couldn't come up with a complementing color, and then it hit me. Do it matte! So I stuck on the little reinforcers on the lower part of my nail to mimic my natural halfmoon, and painted the rest of my nail with China Glaze - Matte Magic. I love it!

Have a nice holiday!


  1. I like this alot! NMW is the color I'm most excited about from my RBL order, and this just makes me even more eager for them.

  2. Oh wow! This has got to be one of the most beautiful manis I've seen in a long time :)I absolutely love it!
    Hope you have a great time in NY with your family, happy holidays!

  3. I think this is one of the best half moon mani's I have seen!

  4. Really like the way that looks! I defiantly need to get my hands on a matte top coats!

  5. Love the mani, love your nails, hate the color. Who would pay 18 bucks for this? Oh, you did... Sorry. LOL =)

  6. cool mani but i agree... why would anyone like the color?! LOL

    I think i will try this technique. I have the matte magic and i've barely played with it. odd huh?

  7. This is so pretty. I didn't really think I would like this colour after only seeing it in the bottle but I love love love how it turned out!

  8. Great idea! I am definitely going to try this. Maybe with OPI Russian Navy Suede and regular Russian Navy or something fun like that!

  9. Cool mani ...but I dislike olive green. I like everything about it except for the color

  10. That's so cleaver! And beautiful! Matte effect complements the not-so-typical color wonderfully :D
