Half Moon Polish - Nails Inc Albert & Victoria

Since my nails are finally peeping over the free edge, I decided to give myself a little half moon polish, as seen on Dita Von Teese.

For those of you that don't know what this is, it's where the entire nail is painted apart from the half moon (lunula) at the bottom of your nail. It gives a fab contrasting look and Leighton Denny does a fab one.

Here's mine:

How to do it:

1. Basecoat the entire nail

2. Apply your chosen polish, leaving your lunula uncovered

3. Cleanup using nail polish remover/acetone with a cotton bud or even better, a thin nail art brush

4. Apply topcoat

I've seen some variations where people use the half moon stickers actually meant for doing nail tips and it seems to work? And Glamour actually has a tutorial using holepunch protector stickers!

I need my nails a little longer, a bit more practice/a steadier hand and the ability to master a two tone one - like white on the bottom, black on top, like Dior did a while ago.
