I've really been enjoying the vintage half moon manicure lately, and so I thought I'd pass on a little how to!
What you'll need:
(I use a nail oil first but you don't have to)
a base coat
the color of choice
a top coat
hole punch enforcers (found at Walmart but you can get them any where)
nail polish remover
1. Put the base coat on and let it dry well. Then cut the little stickers in half (I like to cut them in half because it makes them more manageable) and put them at the base of the nail on both hands.
I put them fairly high up because I like a little bit bigger half moon, but if you wanted a more subtle half moon just make sure they are further down.
2. Paint on two nice thick coats of your color.
3. Make sure the polish is completely dry or you'll get icky smudges. Peel off the stickers and if you have goops, just remove them with the nail polish remover and a cue tip.
4. After you've cleaned them up put a nice top coat on and TA DA! You have a lovely half moon manicure.
If you want to put on a complimentary color underneath just put a coat on before you put the stickers on, but make sure the polish is super dry before you put the stickers on or they will pull off the color.
