How To Nail The Half-Moon Manicure

We've been known to stop and stare, mouths agape, when we see a set of truly tricked-out tips. Guess you could call us admirers from afar. After all, there's no way we'd have a steady enough hand required for nail art. Or, could we?
Our beliefs changed when we realized it's possible to master one of our favorite modern manis — the half-moon — without breaking a sweat. In fact, it's not only simple, but striking and office-appropriate, too. Best of all? If we make a mistake, there's a surefire way to clean up our stray polish.
So, it goes without saying that we're over the moon (ha, ha) for this easy-to-execute nail look. We'll be donning this design for months to come.
