Triangle Half Moons with Chanel

I have no idea what to call this mani, so the title is, so creatively, exactly what it is! A triangle half moon manicure using Chanel. 

- I apologise for the cut in my index fingers cuticle :-( it really hurts and looks properly gross, hopefully by Mondays post it will have gone away. I hate it.

The colours I used are 607 Delight and 18 Rouge Noir.

Like Wednesdays post, this is something I haven't really tried before, but I think I did ok! I did get a few compliments at work to which always helps :-)

To create the half moon, I applied one coat of delight, then sprayed over the Elegant Touch Rapid Dry For Nails (which I recieved in a Glossybox and i absolutely love!).

I then cut some scotch tape into triangles and placed them over Delight where I wanted to make the half moon. I stuck the tape to my skin first to make it less sticky and therefore less likely to take off any nail colour.

Next, I applied two coats of Rouge Noir and a teeny bit more Rapid Dry Spray.

Finally, remove the tape and add your favourite top coat. At the moment I am loving one coat of Sparkly Nails Top Coat and then a coat of Seche Vite.

I love the SV for drying time obviously, but I hate that it shrinks and you can see they layers of polish around the edges of your nail which looks awful! I've found that using another top coat underneath stops this from happening. 

I think I'll try the INM Out The Door next. Has anyone tried it? What do you think compared to SV?

Hope you all have an awesome weekend!
