Easter Monday Bank Holiday Half Moons
So, I think I dreamt about half moon nails last night because I spent an hour looking at pictures of Dita Von Teese. I love the look - so vintage, so 1950's. Although they were brought back a while ago (for fall 2009 runways I think), for some reason I'm obsessing about them now!!
I wanted to recreate it on myself but using different contrasting or complementary colours other than the traditional white/red I've always seen. I loved what CND did at the Christian Dior and Ruffian runways.
I don't have much of a steady hand so I cheated and used the little round stickers method. They didn't come out bad for a first attempt and although the stickers left some residue behind, it didn't damage the polish.
What do you guys think of the half moon manicure in general?
