So tonight after reading Alix's Nail Tutorial I had to give it a go myself. I went straight to WHSmiths and bought some Hole Reinforcers. Seriously thats what they are called, I had to ask the assistant to help me find them and I described them as "those things that you put on paper in your ring binder to make the holes stronger." Now I know the technical name for them, and so do you haha.
So in a nutshell you paint your nails with the base colour you want your half moons to be, then apply the hole reinforcers (cut into halves) then paint your top colour over. Thats it. I love it. I also did it in a gold and green like Alix's original tutorial but I think my gold just wasn't the right shade. I really want a nice true gold polish so if you have any idea's please let me know.
In the end I went with clear and red. I absolutely love it. I think I'm going to wear my nails like this for a month. At least. Give it a go, its super easy and I really love the effect it gives. What do you think?
