neon yellow half moon nail design

Lately I've been bored with wearing just one shade of nail polish so I decided to mix it up a bit and try my hand at some nail art. I know it looks fairly basic and simple but you definitely need to have a steady hand and good eyesight to be able to pull it off, and a cotton bud soaked in nail polish remover at the ready to clean up any mistakes. It's also best to use a thin nail polish and not one that has gone tacky as it can make it impossible to draw a good line. Illamasqua 'Rare' is exactly the same colour as the one I used and is easier to get hold of in the UK.

American Apparel 'Cotton' and China Glaze 'Yellow Polka Dot Bikini'

  3. These look amazing. Dunno if I have a good enough steady hand to do it though. Great post.

  4. I love this combination! The neon yellow against the neutral shade looks so good :) Also, I don't know if you already know this method, but you could paint your nails in the yellow, wait for it to dry, and then use hole protector stickers (for inside ring binders) to create a template for the half moon shape :)
