The Digit-al Dozen Does The Terrific Twos! Celebrating Our 2nd Anniversary with an Evil Eye Half Moon Manicure



I can't believe that it's the second anniversary of The Digit-al Dozen already!! This week we're focusing on different themes for each day that relate to the momentous occasion. For our first nail art mani the theme is 'things that come in pairs' and after a huge mental block, I finally decided on an evil eye half moon mani! Check 'em out!

The Design

The evil eye half moon manicure isn't a particularly original idea, but I hadn't tackled many eye-related manicures for the blog yet SO I thought it would be fun to do! To set off the sky blue eye design I did a contrasting base of orange since blue and orange are complimentary colors. I wanted just a smidge more interest in the base so I did a saran wrap texture with a somewhat chunky gold foil polish over the orange creme base. The contrast was super fun!

The Polishes & Supplies

First I did two coats of Deborah Lippmann's Lara's Theme, an orange crelly-creme base. After it was set I did the saran wrap technique with Catrice Goldfinger, a chunky-particle gold foil polish. The eyes were freehanded with Zoya Purity (white), China Glaze Bahamian Escape (#1 most talked about sky blue polish on my blog), and Cult Nails Nevermore (black).
