Lately I have been totally hooked to the half moon nail trend. I love it, it has tons of options for interpretation and I thought it would be fun to include the half moon detail into a wedding nail design. So I will share with you how my half moon bridal nail art turned out and tell you how I made it.
First, add the half moon.
This wedding nail art was meant to be delicate and I wanted colors to have a gradient line instead of a harsh one. So I painted the half moon part first, using an opaque soft pink shade and some guiding stripes. I may have mentioned this in my color block half moon nails tutorial, it is important to remove the stripes while nail polish is still wet. This way it will not leave a deep mark into your design.
Then, blend with a sheer pink.
After you have done your job with the guiding stripes and the half moon detail is ready, paint your nails with an sheer pink color. It will still be lighter where you have no polish on but will blend the half moon within the nail color and make it look more gentle and subtle. By this point you already have a feminine and classic manicure :)
Last, add a gold line.
I added a gold line where the two pinks meet to embellish the nails a little more and to give this wedding manicure some additional sparkle. I love how delicate this gold detail looks! If you are using a glitter gold like mine, it would be best to skip the top coat as it may steal away some of its shine.
Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoyed!
