Half Moon Mani {Tutorial}

half moon manis. exposing the 'nude' of your nail is a popular nail trend now and one of the easiest ways to do that is the half moon mani. having recently been sent some fall colors from Polish & Co., i decided to use their gorgeous blue and put it to the test.

the full coverage in one coat of this polish made the half moon mani a cinch. the blue is perfect for fall. (okay, i cross my heart and promise not to talk about navy blue for the rest of the week) while this mani goes against every instinct to brush color beginning at the cuticle, it is actually pretty simple to achieve.

begin with a base coat. carefully apply polish color of choice below cuticle line, gently creating a curve and finish with a topcoat. easier said than done, i know, but i achieved it my first go-round. even on my right hand.



  1. I love that color! I like the half moon thing too. It would be fun to use a white color on the moon or something neon!

  2. Great tutorial! I usually suck at nail art, but this looks like something I could be able to do. Great color too!

  3. Yes i like it..but not for the whole week...hihi
