Check out this classic spin on a French Manicure that’s inspired from the 1940’s. This half moon manicure looks great with contrasting two-toned colors.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
-Navy nail polish
-Taupe nail polish
-Glitter nail polish
-Standard paper hole reinforcement stickers (you can get them at any office supply store)
STEP 1: Paint your entire nail with the base color that you want your cuticle color to be (we used navy). Let your base color dry completely before you continue on to Step 2. We waited about 10 minutes just to be safe.
STEP 2: Apply the reinforcement labels/stickers to your nails right at the top of your nail (try cutting the labels in half to get more uses out of them). The majority of the label should be on your skin and only a small amount on your nail depending on how big or small you want your half-moon to be. Once you have the label in place, press on it until it is completely stuck in all corners so it contours to your nail.
STEP 3: Paint your entire nail with the taupe nail polish (this might take a couple layers since the base color navy is so dark. Ensure a clean contrasting line of color by painting on top of the sticker and around the edges. Let your second layer color sit for a couple minutes.
STEP 4: Now carefully remove the reinforcement labels. These stickers should peel off without taking of any of the color underneath and leave you with a clean edge.
STEP 5: Spice up your new nails with a glitter french tip. Don’t worry about getting it perfect because it’s hard to tell with the glitter polish.
STEP 5: Protect with a glossy, clean topcoat to preserve you’re new look!
