I had something of an adventure this morning. I'm an Australian living in Toronto. On a recent bus trip to the US, the green thing in my passport was left in and apparently the only way to return it is at an airport or a border. I took this to mean I should go to Buffalo! For an hour and 20 minutes. On the bus. Buffalo isn't the best but at least I got more polish! I also found some reinforcement labels which leads me to today's mani featuring American Apparel Crescent Heights.
Let me preface further discussion by mentioning how much I usually don't like half-moon manis. There's something about them that usually freaks me out. Not wanting to just do a half-moon with the labels, I thought I'd try multiple stripes. First up, I started with two coats of Crescent Heights, a really bright lime/grass green. As usual for AA polishes, application was really good. I then stuck on the label and painted with a coat of Rimmel Black Satin, followed by a top coat. Now here's where I was surprised. It actually looks awesome! Shame I added the other coats, it just didn't work quite as well as I hoped, with me not waiting long enough for it all to dry. So I took it off and did it again. Reallllly didn't think I'd be rocking a half moon this morning :)
|See?? Something about the colours just works. I'm happy. Surprised, but happy.
The Verdict: Love American Apparel Crescent Heights, surprisingly loving the half moons. Wonders will never cease.
