Ooh la la! Half moon manicures.

I am quite possibly the girliest girl you’ll ever meet. I’m always looking for new beauty things to try. New colours and make up looks, hairstyles; You name it, I’ve probably tried it. Lately, I’ve been obsessed with anything glamorous/vixenish. It’s feminine, , and hot!

My latest discovery is the half moon manicure. Dita Von Teese (whose style is insanely flawless) has claimed it as her signature manicure. It has to a tendency to resurface on catwalks every year or so, especially in the fall. Dior recreated it flawlessly in the Fall 2007 ready-to-wear show. This sassy manicure comes straight out of the 1940s, when women used to paint their nails blood-red, leaving a naked half moon and adding a thin silver line on the tip. Simply gorgeous!

This style works best with oval or round shaped nails. You can try mixing up the colours to match your taste. I personally prefer a pearly white half moon with any shade of red polish. Skipping the silver line is recommended for shorter nails, as it makes them look oddly chopped off.

Anyway, for those ladies looking for a feminine, yet playful/quirky look, this is definitely one to try. I will not be going back to painting my nails the “normal” way any time soon!

  1. Dita would be hot even if she grew her fingernails all long and curly like the guy in the Guiness Book of World Records.

    I do love the half moon manicure! I wonder if my girl can do those.

    Sending girly frilliness from another girly girl! 🙂
