Wreath Half Moon

For Christmas (Merry Christmas to all you who celebrate!), I was inspired (yet again) by Sarah at Chalkboard Nails, this time to somewhat recreate her holiday half moon wreath! I decided I wanted different bows, and that I wanted to try dotting on my wreath. I really like the result!


I started with one of my favorite polishes, Blaze by Zoya. I then dotted on three different colored greens with two types of dotting tools (an unbent hair pin and an unbent paper clip. I’m classy), and finally painted on the ribbons.


I know I’m not supposed to say these things, but look at the detail on those ribbons! I am impressed with myself 🙂


If you would like to re-create this manicure, check out the tutorial I put together! Other than the tiny black lines, this was actually really easy.



  • Red: Zoya – Blaze
  • Light green: Essie – The More The Merrier
  • Green: Sinful Colors – Exotic Green
  • Dark green: Sinful Colors – Last Chance
  • Gold: Maybelline – Bold Gold
  • Black: Sinful Colors – Black on Black



Hope you enjoyed this last day of holiday manicures!
