CND created the look by keeping nails short and rounded and used CND Putty for a demure nude base and CND Brilliant White for the moons to highlight. Below is my (not very good!) recreation of the look!! Don't laugh ok x) I took these pics right after a long day of work so I look very tired!
I was very kindly sent a bottle of CND Putty to try. I've never tried out CND colours so I was super excited as I've only tried their Stickey base coat. Putty is a soft beige-y nude and is described as a "warm semi-sheer". It's not TOO sheer but you'll still need 3 thick coats for opacity which is pictured below. This would be a great shade for "mannequin hands" for some girls but unfortunately not for me, I'm still yet to find the perfect shade for me! Putty leans somewhat orangey (?) on me and gives me lobster hands in some light but I LOVE the colour anyway. There's something about it I just really like!
Putty applied well and had minimal dragging which is great as it's a common problem I find with sheer polishes. It dried quickly to a glossy finish and I was impressed with the wear. Unfortunately I'm not a huge fan of the CND brushes at all. I find the brush quite stiff and the end is shaped very straight making it difficult to apply polish without having to do cuticle cleanup. Not a huge deal as practice makes perfect when it comes to application with different brands!
I then freehanded white moons on the base of my nails using OPI Alpine Snow. I then topped it off with a coat of Poshe topcoat. Not my neatest application as you can see as the moons are far too big but oh well! Just don't look too closely ;)

A big thank you to Ellie for sending me the above product to sample! I was sent the above product for my consideration but this in no way influenced my review in any way. As always, my reviews are my 100% honest opinion.
What do you think of this look? Would you try it yourself?
Thanks for looking as always!
