gothic moon nailsGothic Moon nails were the unexpected outcome of a nail art experiment. I meant to try Essie Matte About You! When choosing colours for a matte manicure, it seemed like a good idea to keep it all in one ‘family’. So I picked Essie 763 Power Clutch (pictured) as a base to play with. It was an absolutely impromptu result as I have neither tried this shade before nor created manicures like that.

The result was so impressive I didn’t dare to proceed with the matte top coat. That will happen tomorrow! For now I just want to admire the perfect gloss and understated chic of these Gothic Moons.

Read on for a how to ;)
