For my half moon nails I've gone back to that old favourite, black and gold! I was trying to figure out ways to spice it up - maybe adding a gradient, a waterfall, some glitter - but then I thought why mess with the proven formula? I do love half moons. I think they're very, um... sexy, especially in any combination that includes red, black or nude. I mean there's a reason it's Dita Von Teese's nail art of choice!
I used NYC Full Metal Jacket as my base colour followed by a coat of No7 Stay Perfect Top Coat to dry it quickly. Next I used hole reinforcers to mark off the half moon and painted over the rest of the nail in W7 Black. Then I topped it all off with another two coats of Stay Perfect Top Coat.
I wrote a full tutorial for half moon nails here.
