This delicate nail art is a combination of my two favourite looks, geometric and half moon. Inspired by the soft and feminine colours of the new Ulta3 summer 2014/15 collection, I wanted to create a nail design to reflect the mood of the range. Something understated and whimsical was the objective.
HOW TO: Start with the light lilac base colour, Ulta3 Woolly Days. At the base of each nail, using a striping nail art brush, paint tiny edgy moons with Ulta3 Radiant Orchid. The final step is to outline the tiny moons with a soft yellow polish. Ulta3 Lacy Daisy is perfect for this. Finish your manicure with 2 layers of a quick drying glossy (or matte) top coat. Easy!
With nail art trends shifting towards more elegant designs, I think this Delicate Edgy Moons manicure has great potential. This nail design is office-friendly if done in neutral colours. It can be easily adapted for a special occasion, try jewel tones with gold or silver combos. You could even try something similar to this floating negative space manicure, just keep the geometric shapes small, perfect!
