opposites attract when you pair an elegant soft mauve with a bold, deep red wine for a half-moon manicure that's out of this world.
step 1: hydrate with apricot cuticle oil.
step 2: cean then prep nail with an essie base coat or treatment.
step 3: apply 2 thin coats of ladylike in a semi circle at the base of the nail. let dry.
tip: it doesn't need to be perfect as the next color will perfect your arc.
step 4: using bordeaux, sweep on a horizontal arc, leaving a semi-circle of ladylike visible at the moon. cover the rest of the nail, brushing vertically to create an even surface. apply two coats. let dry.
step 5: shine + seal with an essie top coat.
