Manicure Challenge: Half Moons

Hello my lovelies! Sorry I haven't been around this week. I've already told you about the studying and exams thing. Truth is, I'm not really in the mood for blogging these days. I hope that will change next week and I will hopefully catch up with all the nail pics that I have to show you. I'm also really behind on reading blogs, so I'm sorry if I haven't commented in a while. One more week and then stuff will be back to normal. Today's post is a very exciting one for me, so I couldn't miss it. It's the first time I'm participating in a challenge with my fellow Romanian bloggers. We had to do some half moon nails for today and here's what I came up with. 

Today's nails are entirely made with a-england polishes! Some of you know that I love this brand, I love the formula and the amazing colors. So I chose 2 a-england cremes to complete these challenge, and since they are purple, they also work for Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month

I started this manicure with 2 perfect coats of a-england Elaine. After it was dry, I used some of those round stickers that you can find in the office supply store to mask the half moons at the base. Then, I painted the rest of the nail with a-england Guinevere. I had a little trouble with the stickers not sticking properly to the nail in some spots, so they didn't come out perfectly, but I still like the end result. 

This is actually the second time I do a half moon manicure. Compared to the first one (which can be found here), the moons on this one are smaller and I think I like it better that way. I'm still having trouble with the stickers lifting up at the edges, but I guess it's part of the learning process. 

Thank you for reading! Here are the other ladies participating in today's challenge:
