Half moons with Sinful Colors Purple Diamonds

Hey everyone! 

Today I have a half moon/ gradient manicure. Sorry for all of the gradients but I just can't get enough of them! The Nailasaurus makes them so easy to do I find myself doing them all the time so bear with me guys lol. I started out with a base coat and then four coats of Sally Hansen Nearly Nude in Natural Pink. I almost wish I had picked a more opaque polish so I didn't have to wait SO long for them to dry. Then I used paper protectors and cut them in half and put them at the base of all of my nails. Then I used The Nailasaurus' technique and applied Sinful Colors Purple Diamonds on a makeup sponge and sponged them on my nails. I think I went over them about 3 times. I pulled off the paper protectors, added some top coat, and viola! Pretty half moons!

For my ring finger I just added silver rhinestones that I bought off of ebay. I might go back and add them to all of my nails though I really like that look.

What do you guys think? 
Thanks for reading! :)
