Easy Half Moon Mani DIY

MoonMani  Hello, friends! Are you ready for this trendy mani? Psst, it's also really easy too! I love how simple it is to up your mani game with this technique. I couldn't help myself and just had to add a little glitz with some crystals I picked up from the craft store. You can absolutely keep it simple with just the half moon look OR give into the sparkle and add a little shine. ;) 

Supplies:
-small, stiff makeup brush
-polish remover
-polish of your choice
top coat
crystals
reinforcement labels

MoonManiStep One: Place the reinforcement label on the bottom of your nail. Secure it as much as possible. This won't keep all the polish from running, but it does provide a good base and makes it much easier to clean up! For this mani, I found it easier to do one nail at a time. 

Step Two: After your label is in place, paint on two coats of polish. Immediately and carefully remove sticker. Don't worry, it won't be perfect yet!

Step Three (Optional): While the polish is still wet, drop a crystal in the center of your nail.

Step Five: Apply 1-2 coats of top coat to secure your crystal and give it a beautiful shine. Repeat steps for each nail.
