{how to: matte moon manicure}

nautical-inspiration-hed

. . . despite recently picking up summery shades of crisp white & palest sunset pink, and exclusively wearing gold on fingers & toes for the past few weeks, have been falling for the CND ruffian matte moon manicure for its decidedly nautical pairing of gold & navy, created by painting pre-made gold tips with a coat of navy polish and a mattifier, perfect for summer afternoons and oceanside dreams . . .

......................................................................................................

{p.s.} a similar look can also be achieved without chrome tips, using a gold base {try gold chrome #548}, then coats of navy {try inkwell #539}, finished with super matte top coat

......................................................................................................

* a classic chignon
* a double-knot

e v e r y t h i n g e l s e
* a braided brass hex nut bracelet
* a sweet nothings garland
*
a classic english hand-tied bouquet
* summery ombé napkins

Very alluring, R. But, must say that I am still loving the pearly toe pedicure peeking out of your strappy sandals! So glamorous - so French Riviera chic! ;) Happy Weekend. M

I never paint my nails but that's so exquisitely Deco in style.

Ohhhhhh, I like this. I love the idea with a soft pink or neutral shade and the gold. Very pretty. =)

Great idea.. I will definately try this with various colours. I always like when one takes a classic and put a spin to it.
