Plasma Plays in 21 Ways: "4. Execute a Half-Moon Mani"

I am totally diggin;' the light spring pastel colors that are out right now!  I didn't think they would look good on my darker skin, but I found some I really like.  So I figured it was time for #4 in Plasma Speedo's 21 Ways to Play, Execute a Half-Moon Mani:
I should have cleaned up the cuticles before the pic, but I wanted to take it in this last little bit of sunlight so I could capture the sparkly top coats of China Glaze's "Fairy Dust" and Sally Hansen's "Disco Ball".  I must admit, I'm not a fan of this style of mani, which is why I decided to really try to go different with the shatter layer.  Meh.  I actually liked it better before the half-moon:

Well, this one will be on today & tomorrow, and then I'm moving on to #5 Go Dark.  Oh yeah!  Speaking of dark, my toes got a couple of new coats today too:
The base is a no-name black shimmer polish from Forever 21.  It was actually nice and thick, and was opaque in 2 coats with lots of silvery shimmer.  Not too bad for $1.  The crazy glitter on top is "Endangered Blue Loon" from Windestein.  This Etsy shop is really cool, and their prices are amazing.  "Blue Loon" is $5 for a full bottle, and I picked up "Into the Wild" and "80's Deco" for $6 each.  And shipping was super-fast.  Click that link!

Have a Happy Easter!

    1. Yay! I'm glad you like it! This is the 1st time I've used my white crackle, and it actually "crackled" beautifully. I like it with the pastel colors. :-)
