Nailed it

I've got a couple recent nail polish victories to share with you. I've been dying for Essie's Chinchilly nail polish for a while. I love Essie, but I've been buying so much polish lately that I wasn't too keen on paying $8 a bottle. So I'd been searching for a similar color but had been unsuccessful until recently. I found a great $5 alternative. Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Greige Gardens. What do you think?

 I also recently tried the half-moon trend. I used Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Greige Gardens and Plum's The Word and paper reinforcers to create the shape. Here's a step by step photo guide.
Greige Gardens & Plum's The Word

Start with a coat of your light color (Greige Gardens)
Place reinforcers at the base of each nail with a half circle on the nail. Paint dark color over the entire nail
Remove reinforcer and now you have half moon nails
