How to: Moon Nails


Moon nails are a trend from the 30's that has been revived!  Did I mention how super easy it is to achieve this look?  This a great way to make a statement without being too over the top as well as a sophisticated alternative to the classic, french manicure.

How To:

1. Gather your supplies--  You will need two complimentary colors. I used China Glaze's Unpredictable & NYC Skin Tight Denim.  You will also need a top coat and round stickers!
2.Apply your base color. This will be the color that your lunulas/moon will be.
3.  Once your base color is dry, put your guides to work.  You want to make sure that they line up perfect.  Also make sure that there are no opportunities for your second color to seep through.
4. Apply your second color and fix any mistakes that you make!  Add on your top coat and you are finished.

  4. Out of boredom because I have the flu and nothing else to do, I did half moon nails and quarter moon (?) tips. Sloppy but why not?
