Mid-Week Inspiration: French Half Moon Manicure


I've been in love with half moon manicures for as long as I can remember. I can't say the same thing about French manicures. However, blend the two together and the result is fantastic. At the Thakoon Fall 2009 runway show the models wore black and white French half moon manicures that are divine! I'd love to try this in a bright red. Check out The Stylist post on how to nail the half moon look. I can't wait to try it!

Like you, I'm loving this look. I actually noticed it in season 3 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (only with a natural moon & no french tip--another variation I loooove).

ahhh yes, the traditional half moon manicure is my true love! I remember my grandmother telling me that's all they wore in the 30's. This version though is a great new modern twist!

I've never gotten a manicure just because I'm deathly afraid of getting an infection from the tools but if I did get one, it would be a half moon manicure, so sexy!

love this. saw another fab hand job in a mag recently where nails were painted in an opaque beige-y nude shade and tips were in a rainbow of different pastel shades. wish i could remember what book i saw it in so i could show my mani-maven.
