The New Half MoonDifficulty Level: 7
Last season, we saw half-moon shapes painted at the base of the nail around the cuticle. This season at Phillip Lim, Essie nail artist Elle mixed things up and painted the half moon along the sides of the nails. She started with one coat of black polish, added a thin stripe of gray (called Chinchilly), and then painted a white crescent moon along the length. "This graphic nail design is dramatic, yet incredibly wearable," says Essie founder Essie Weingarten. This look doesn't have to be too perfect, so try painting the shapes freehand with a detailing brush.
