Green and Gold Half-Moon Mani

A hint of sparkle, applied with some clever tools, can give your favorite nail polish color an instant update.

To complete this sparkly half-moon manicure you will need topcoat and clear base coat, your favorite color of nail polish, loose glitter, an artist's brush or small nail art brush, a fan brush, and hole reinforcement stickers (found at your local office supply store). Start by painting your nails with a clear base coat, then apply the round stickers to each nail, coveringa bout a third of the nail near the base. Apply your colored nail polish to the part of exposed part of the nail. Once the colored polish is dry you can remove the stickers. Next, use the artist's brush to paint clear base coat where the stickers once were. This thin brush will let you get into all the narrow crevices neatly. Shake your loose glitter over the wet clear polish and use the fan brush to sweep away any excess glitter. Add a topcoat to seal in the glitter, and you'll be ready to show off your new glitzy manicure!
