I decided to create cosmic nail art with verdant moons and stars. I think this manicure would be the ideal adornment for a celestial fete! This look is part costume ball, part science fiction.
Beginning with Artsy Crafty, a deep moss green, as the base, I painted the moons in Perfect Mol-ten, a pale green foil. I worked with size 0 sable brush from the art supply store. To create symmetrical moons, I formed a dot in the center of my cuticle line and then added two small dots to denote the ends of the crescent. I painted a 'C' and enlarged the shape into a crescent moon.
Although the design is simple, achieving a defined crescent takes a small brush and patience. If you decide to try this look, focus on keeping the end points of the crescent narrow. I filled in the center of the moon with emerald and peridot gems and stars, along with soft green pearls.
|Fingerless gloves from Art by Sarada|
The last photo shows one of the fingerless gloves made for me by Sarada as a birthday present. I love the ruffled cuff! Enlarge the picture to show the metallic silver threaded in the yarn. So lovely!
I adore Artsy Crafty! This polish reminds me of the green in moss agate, one of my favorite colors in the natural world. The application is clean and professional. I used three coats for opacity, but two would likely suffice for ladies with active length nails. A truly beautiful creme polish and a must have for green lovers.
Working with Perfect Mol-ten has incited many ideas for future manicures with other shades from the new Color Club Foiled Collection! The formula is great for color blocking.
I hope you enjoyed my fantasy manicure with green moons and stars. I hope whatever life there is on other planets turns out to be well adorned.
