Last weekend I tried a deceptively simple nail art design – the half moon mani. It’s a challenging mani design especially when one does not have appropriate tools to make this design. Here is how I made it.
Tools: Essie Ballet Slippers, Chanel Black Satin, a strip of relatively stiff card paper, a thin painting brush
Step 1: Use Essie’s Ballet Slippers as a base. I painted 2 costs. Let it dry completely.
Step 2: Use card paper to mask the upper part of your nail.
Step 3: Use the thin painting brush to paint Chanel’s Black Satin on the nail that is left exposed / unmasked by the card paper. One coat is enough but if your black polish isn’t as opaque as Black Satin you may need to apply 2 costs. Let it dry completely.
Step 4: Seal with top coat.
Here is a picture of the finished mani. Not as perfect as I have seen on Pinterest but it’s a start for me 😊
