Ever since I saw it on the runway, I’ve wanted to give this romantic vintage-inspired mani a try. After scouring my shelves for just the right tools, the oh-so-right-now half-moon look is mine!
Tips for getting this look:
1. Apply base coat. Wait at least 20 minutes for nails to dry (very important).
If you’re trying this for the first time, I recommend using a lighter colored base coat (I used OPI in Makes Men Blush)
2. Place rounded sticker along base of nail, about 1/3 of the way up.
I used the rounded edge of a mailing label…it’s what I had on hand! Something like those little paper punch reinforcers or price tag dots would probably work a bit better.
3. Paint uncovered portion of nail with coordinating color.
I used Ulta in Ruby Slipper.
4. Peel sticker from nail.
I suggest NOT waiting for nail to dry before CAREFULLY removing sticker…this will help prevent any weird smudges or “stringy” polish.
5. Let Nails dry completely, then apply a top coat.
A top coat will work wonders in smoothing over any imperfections besides making all your painstaking work last longer! I used OPI Start to Finish (original formula)
