5/ Crescent  Nails

If you like a French manicure, you’ll love these nails. The key is using colour strategically. Begin by applying a base coat to clean nails. Then apply a nude colour to each nail. Create a crescent shape for your French tip with the polish brush, starting along each side of the top of the nail and creating a “U” shape, using one of the three desired shades. Top off a top coat for a high gloss finish. Nail colour: essie Go Overboard.
