Happy Monday, and welcome to my NEW weekly feature—Moonicure Monday!

Every Monday, I am going to do a half-moon manicure, but with my spin on it. This could mean funky colors, shapes, treatments–anything goes! I have so many ideas already! I have done half-moon manicures in the past (obviously), but I was never really stoked on them until I changed my nail shape. My epiphany? Half-moon manicures are awesome when mixed with oval nails! (My apologies if you disagree, you MAAAAY want to skip Mondays for the unforeseeable future.)

This inaugural Moonicure Monday design takes the half-moon shape, but adds a little twist... a little spark of something extra, if you will. I hope you (to borrow a phrase from the 90's? 00s?) think they're da bomb. (dot com?)

I used:

Dark Grey: Nubar Stronghold
Black: American Apparel Hassid
Light Grey: Nubar Marble Tower
Red: China Glaze Hey Sailor
Orange: CND Electric Orange
Yellow: Cult Nails Feel Me Up
Orange Sparkle: China Glaze Riveting
Orange crystal in the center of each spark
Basecoat: Seche Vite basecoat

  6. Love these! I've also become pretty enamored with half-moons and funky twists on them since I switched to round nails!

  7. This is so cute! omgggg, I always love your designs <3

  8. from the thumbnail, I thought these were flowers growing out of a pot. I was surprised when I saw they were bombs!

  9. Great idea! This is really awesome! :-)

  10. At first glance, I thought the same thing as the style soup- flower pots! I don't know what it says about me, but I was happier when I realized they were little bombs! (I DID grow up watching Road Runner cartoons, after all...) ;-}

  11. You're so clever! I absolutely LOVE your idea of Monday Moonicures!! :). Love this bomb manicure too and the jewel was super cute to add!
