Nail art - Nude half moons

I've been a bit slack on the old nail art front recently but I suddenly realised I had a couple of designs put aside for the posts I needed to prepare for while I was filming in the summer.

I went for nude half moons for the name for this design but now I'm a little unsure about the Google searches that might lead to this post! This is a spring pastel version of a half moon manicure which is usually done with deeper darker shades. It's really not a difficult design to do. I started with a base of Soigné Caramel from the Macaron collection and then sectioned off the half moon shape with a hole reinforcer before painting over the rest of the nail with Soigné Petale de rose, also from the Macaron collection. Hole reinforcers are perfect for providing the half moon shape but I would recommend sticking them to your skin a few times first to make them a little less sticky as even if you've set your base with a top coat they can pull your base colour away from your nail when you remove them.

What do you think of nude half moons?
