NOTD: LILAC & GOLD STUD HALF MOON MANICURE TUTORIAL

Hi Guys,

I have a really simple Nail Tutorial for you guys Today, although I am not entirely sure that I’m loving the look of these and have been umming and ahhing over whether I should publish this post or not. In the end I decided to go ahead anyway to see what you guys think…

STEP ONE:

Starting from the bottom corner of the nail, paint around the base of the nail to create a small moon shape like how I’ve done below.  Don’t worry about it being too neat as we will correct it afterwards.

STEP TWO:

Paint the rest of the nail with polish, making sure not to go over your half moon. Apply two coats to even and smooth out any streaks.

Take a small nail brush and dip it into some nail polish remover. Then in small, side to side strokes tidy up the line by following the curve of the moon.

Apply round studs along the half moon with nail glue. I’ve used one medium sized stud in the center of the moon and two smaller sized studs on each side. I’ve also left a small space in between each stud.

To create the accent nail I used a series of smaller studs and placed them along the half moon. For this nail I’ve not left any spaces between each stud.

Simply apply a clear top coat to seal the polish and give smooth, high shine finish!

That’s the Half Moon Manicure in a nutshell, the studs are optional and not necessary if you prefer a simpler look. The half moon manicure would look great with a red nail polish for a Vintage/50’s glam look à la Dita Von Teese.

What do you think guys? Loving the look or bit like me on the fence?

Let me know!
