DIY Half Moon
Step 1. First paint your nail a lighter shade of whatever color you may choose. I decided to do with Chanel Pearl as my base color.
Let your nails dry for a while. I did my base in the morning and the rest in the evening.
Step 2. Take your reinforcements, that again, you can purchase: here! or at your local staples, walgreens, etc. Cut each in half.
Step 3. Place your half reinforcement on each nail lined up as far up or down as you’d prefer you “half moon.” Paint over it with the color of your choice. I used Revlon, Passionate Pink. Can be found in your local CVS or Walgreens.
Let dry for about 5 minutes.
Step 4. Slowly peel off the reinforcements.
*Depending on how many coats of polish you put on, you may have to lightly pat down the paint to your nail if any polish has risen.
Then finally paint over your entire nail with a top coat.
I use Chanel, Extreme Shine, Nail Lacquer.
