Flip Flop #10: Half Moons

I've had this manicure in my 'ideas' folder for aaages, and I finally got round to trying it!  I pinched the idea from Top Coat It - you should check her blog out, there's some fantastic nail art on there.

CRABS!  And sparkly disco crabs, at that.

I used China Glaze Kalahari Kiss (the colour isn't very accurate here!) then I freehanded on the half moons and claws using Barry M Bright Red and Red Glitter, then added eyes with a dotting tool and Barry M Matt White and Black.

Aren't they adorable?  So glad I finally got round to trying this!  And yes, the fat claw on my thumb crab is totally intentional...

  2. Love this. It is so cute, the nude nails with the sparkle of the crabs works perfectly together.

    1. Thanks :) If only real crabs were sparkly too, maybe they'd be vaguely pretty...
