Half-Moon Nudey

This is another look from New York Fashion Week, this time from the Odilon show. 

The design comes from Minx Nails who, in case you don't know, make a special kind of nail sticker that really bonds to your nail and is normally applied by professionals. However, lots of the designs are easy enough to recreate at home with polish and nail art brushes. 
You may have seen Beyonce, Rihanna and other stars sporting the famous Minx chrome manicures. Hopefully, one day, the powers that be will create a polish that gives you the same effect as the amazing chrome Minxes.

I couldn't find this design on Minx's website but you can click here to see the models sporting the look.



I used Collection 2000 White as a base and Cult Nails Cruisin' Nude for the half moons which I applied using a small nail art brush.

  16. I always think the half-moon look is very sophisticated. It's especially so with this nice, subtle color combination.

  17. When I saw this for the first time I tought this were very bad added white nail tips.
    You know what I mean? Very very bad white french tips, like in acrylic/gel nails.

    In my opinion, the color you chose for the half moons, is to dark.
    The models wear a very light beige/nude for the half moon and they look very inconspicuous.

    I love your blog and I really like your nail polish designs (especially the aztetic tribal look)
    But sorry, for this time you failed.

    Love,
    Sandy
