Happy Valentine’s day everyone! Hope you are having a fabulous day with your special someone!!

We really don’t have any plans, but I felt like trying something pretty today. I’ve been wanting to do nail-art for a while and found so many posts on creating this half moon nail-art using reinforcement labels, so I decided to give it a try.

I first used a base coat all over my nails and then used the Sephora by O.P.I nail color in Golden (Not sure if this color has any real name – it’s from a mini duo that had gold and silver in it).

Once the nails were completely dry, I stuck the labels on the bottom portion and painted Essence Color & Go in Ready for Action. You can even see a slight nick on my index finger when I tried to stick the labels too soon!!

Once all the nails were done and the paint semi-set, I carefully removed the labels. Don’t wait to remove the labels till the paint is dry, or it kind of lifts the edge up a little. Finally, I topped the nails with the top coat.

And voila, the final look!

It’s not perfect, but I’m quite happy for my first time!! Are you trying anything special today?
