Special Guest Tutorial by Notes and Nails: How to do a half moon manicure, no salon required

Everyone say a warm Outblush welcome to our newest guest poster, lacquer lover Carolyn from Notes and Nails! From reviews of new polishes to awesome tutorials (like the one she created for us today), she keeps her fans up-to-date on the latest news in nail polish. Take it away, Carolyn!

Howdy Outblush readers! My name is Carolyn, a fellow Outblush lover and today I am thrilled to have a guest post from my blog, Half Moon Manis have been trending since they first appeared on runways like Dior and now on many celebs. I've found an uber-easy way to get this chic look.

1. First, use three coats of a lighter polish on your nails. I used Chanel Riva ($40, sold out) for this example.

2. Then, get your hands on some old-school hole punch reinforcers ($4) and place a sticker on the bottom of your nail.

3. Use a darker polish to paint as many coats as you need above the sticker. I've used Deborah Lippmann Girls Just Want to Have Fun ($16) and Seche Vite topcoat ($6).

Carefully peel off the sticker and voila! Enjoy this easy and fun mani and be sure to check me out on Notes and Nails!
