Gwen Stefani Inspired Half Moon Manicure

Hi guys! Today I have a little bit of super easy nail art inspired by the beautiful Gwen Stefani. Gwen was on the cover of the November issue of InStyle and in the photo shoot for it she was rocking a fab half moon mani. As soon as I saw it I wanted to do it, half moon mani's are easy and I love the combo she had on....it's a good one for the holidays!

I used Nicole by OPI Not A Gold Bigger as my base and the red is Nicole by OPI Redy To Runaway Love? I have no idea what was used on Gwen but this looks close enough! To create the half moon I used french manicure guide strips, I got them at Target. You could also use those circular page reinforcement stickers...I find it hard to get a clean line with them but I know others like them!




And here is my inspiration, Gwen is so fabulous and gorgeous. When I'm in my 40's I hope I look 1/10th as amazing as she does!

  17. I used the same gold a few weeks ago and did an almost exact reverse of that: OPI Wocka Wocka with NOPI Not  a Gold Digger tips. http://i.imgur.com/BagJJ.jpg Before I cleaned it up, but it's one of my favourite holiday looks! That NOPI gold is gorgeous.

  20. Gwen rocks!! She's really gorgeous, I still remember her long nails in  "Hey baby" video. This combo turned out really pretty on you, I might give it a try, even if I usually make a mess with french guides!

  21. This reminds me of that fab mani Samantha wore in the SATC II movie a few years ago. I loved it so much I wore it for a week after I saw the movie!
