NYFW Nails: How To DIY An Alternating Mint Green + Clear Half Moon Manicure

The New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2015 Backstage Beauty Report: Alternating Mint Green + Clear Half Moon Manicures

Designer: Charlotte Ronson

Lead Manicurist: Miss Pop for OPI

The Scoop: To complement the collection’s feminine color palette, which included blues ranging from pastel to navy, soft mint and cream, Lead nail artist Miss Pop created a nail look showcasing negative space, with alternating cutout half moon shapes in That’s Hula-rious! This never-before-seen pastel mint OPI hue is slated to launch in February 2015 as part of OPI’s Spring/Summer 2015 seasonal collection.

How To DIY An Alternating Mint Green + Clear Half Moon Manicure

  1. Prep nails with OPI Base Coat
  2. One the first hand, paint the pinky, middle and pointer fingers with the mint green polish, leaving a natural half moon.
  3. On that same hand, paint a mint green half moon on the ring and thumb fingers, leaving the remainder of the nail natural.
  4. On the other hand, paint the ring and thumb fingers with the mint green polish, leaving a natural half moon.
  5. On that same hand, paint a mint green half moon on the pinky, middle and pointer fingers, leaving the remainder of the nail natural.
  6. Finish all with OPI Top Coat.

For the nail look, each model sported one hand with the pinky, middle and pointer fingers featuring a painted nail with a natural half moon, and the ring and thumb fingers featuring a natural nail with a painted half moon. On the other hand, the look was reversed, with the pinky, middle and pointer fingers featuring the natural nail with a painted half moon, while the ring and thumb fingers had the painted nail with a natural half moon.
