Hi everybody!! How is your week going? Mine is OK. And I have to mention that I was nominated for the Liebster Award on Monday by my fellow blogger. You will hear all about it in my next post. So stay tuned!Today I have something office appropriate to show you. I think it can be worn even in most strict offices where there are no wild colours allowed. So here it is. What I tried to do here was half moons. I don’t know whether I fully succeeded or not, but I like it. I like the nail varnish combination. And even the neutral shade worn on its own is amazing.

I used Essie – Sand Tropez and Essie – Jiggle Hi Jiggle Low. The neutral shade needed three coats to even it out and to reach full opacity. The application was a little tricky, it gave me some issues. First I applied two coats and I wasn’t satisfied with the result. The brush strokes were visible and there were some lumps. So I decided to do the third one, which luckily evened everything out. And you already know about my love for Jiggle Hi Jiggle Low :). I don’t need to repeat myself.

I also have to tell you this. Firstly I tried to do the half moons with vinyls from Essence. But I was really disappointed with them. They are meant for french manicure and I thought they will do just fine for what I had in mind. But they didn’t. They didn’t stick to my nails properly, so the polish was going under and making a mess. I was very anoyed. And in the end I did my moons free hand with a striping brush. Lesson learnt, no more stickers from this brand.

And I also think it looks glamorous and elegant. What about you, what do you think about it?

Thank you for reading and see you next time! xoxo
