I'm a big fan of the half-moon trend, and after reading this gal's post about lilac & gold nails, I knew I had to apply the color pairing to half moon nails.

I messed up my left thumb so many times, I basically tried to exclude it from most of the shots you'll see below. I eventually got it all fixed, once I forced myself to wait long enough for the gold to actually dry.
