Not being a fan of the new pointy nail trend, I needed another slightly wacky nail design. Cue, the alternative half moon manicure. I think Gaga was rocking this updated 1940s nail art a while back, but since I had no equipment for a classic half moon style, I had to go pointed and modern.
I began with a base of Sally Hansen Double Duty, layered on the Nails Inc. 'Oxford Circus', cut squares of tape and angled (with minimal precision!) near the cuticle when 'Oxford Circus' had dried, and layered on OPI 'Skull & Glossbones' (blogged about here). Peeled off the tape, covered in Seche Vite Top Coat and hey presto!
It's a little messy since it's the first attempt. Even so, I can't stop looking at my nails..
