Silver Strip Half Moon Mani with Bloom Cosmetics and OPI

I've been having so much fun doing the half moon manicure on my nails. I'm not much of an expert when it comes to nail art, so I'd say the half moon mani is a very basic technique.

One of my favourite shades that I've been wearing is Bloom Cosmetics *'The Casette Society II' nail polish (gunmetal grey). The gunmetal grey shade suits the winter season, however, you can jazz it up and wear it to suit the Christmas season.

 I've used The Casette Society II as the base with Bloom Cosmetics 'Sibella II' (a gypsy gold shade) nail polish as the half moon (applied over the base) and a strip of OPI 'Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous' (from the OPI Irre-Swiss-Ables Collection) to highlight the half moon. Another reason why I love to use a strip of silver is to disguise an uneven half moon. I don't use any stickers or tape to acheive the half moon mani as it just gets too messy, so the best way for me to apply Sibella II is to simply swipe the nail polish across the base of the nails.

Are you planning on wearing the half moon mani this holidays?
Which shades are you loving at the moment?
