She Nailed It: Candy-Colored Half-Moon Manicure

If you've seen a half-moon manicure, you've probably wondered how to master the look without the skills of a pro manicurist. We're here to show you how to do it. All you need are two perfect-for-summer nail polish shades, binder stickers, and a little (sneaky) know-how.
What you need: How to do it:
  • Step 1: Apply a base coat and follow with two coats of the mint nail polish. Tip: Do this step the night before to save time.
  • Step 2: Once your nails are completely dry, place a binder sticker at the base of each nail just beyond the area where your natural moon would end.
  • Step 3: Paint two coats of the coral shade on each nail above the top edge of the binder stickers.
  • Step 4: When polish is dry, remove the binder stickers to reveal your half moon design.
  • Step 5: Finish with clear top coat.
