Scarlet & Silver Half Moons

I know I should be continuing with the 31 Day Challenge if I want to have any shot of getting through it before the end of the year, but I ran across this Nailasaurus post the other day and was reminded of how much I love this look, so I just couldn't resist doing my own version of it.

I pretty much followed Sammy's technique exactly: I started with a base of Nail Envy and let that dry, and then applied hole reinforcers to my cuticles one at a time before adding a coat of Julep Aisha and removing them right away. Then I decided to add some topcoat before continuing (butter LONDON Hardware P.D. Quick top coat, in this case), just to make things easier on myself.

Once all that dried a bit, I used a small nail art brush to add the silver lines using Zoya Trixie. My accent lines turned out quite a bit thicker/wider than I'd originally planned, but I'm still happy with them! I kind of like that the silver is very noticeable, actually.

 I'd love to hear what people think—did I do this look justice at all? Do you like silver accents better, or gold?

Thanks for reading!
