Start off with a base coat. I used Essie’s “Grow Stronger” base coat.

Apply a base color of your choice. I used Sally Hansen’s Hard as Nails “No Hard Feelings”.

With another color of your choice, paint the half moon shape where the lunula is. I like to do this by first painting where it starts (on each side) and then finishing of the shape with the rounded top and the flat line on the bottom and then filling it in. I used Winstonia’s “Berry Wine” brush and Apple Barrel’s “White” acrylic paint.

To create the tip outline use the same color and a striping brush and simply create a cruved line where the tip of the nail would be. I used Winstonia’s “Short” striping brush.

Lastly, apply a top coat. I used Essie’s “Gel-Setter” top coat.
