From ‘fashionistas’- Khloe Kardashian to Dita Von Teese, to a girl living next door, half moon nail art is used big time by everyone. I too am an ardent fan of half moon nails and cannot help but sport these gorgeous nails at any event.

Unlike common belief that a half moon manicure is a difficult nail art, it perhaps is the simplest of all. Yes, you may create some complex designs to make this nail art look difficult, but that’s your wish! Half moon nail art designs are not a recent trend, but have been present for some time now. Many celebrities are often seen sporting this fabulous half moon nail art at special events like movie screenings and red carpets to make a style statement.

Also known as Reversed French Manicure, the half moon nail art designs involve the use of two shades of polishes in contrasting effect. While, you would paint the base using one color, the tips would be painted using another. Like mentioned, the moon in circular shape, located at the bed of the nails is painted with a contrasting shade, while the rest of the nail gets colored with another.

Half moon nails originated way back in the early 20’s and have been in fashion world till now, much to my delight! It is such a nail art that you can carry off perfectly without going overboard with it.

For a simple occasion, you can use pastel half moon manicure that involves pretty shades of baby pinks and peaches, while for a more spectacular event, you can try adding complex designs made of lace or rhinestones. Half moon nail art looks glamorous even when you use simplest of colors. From simple shades of yellow, pink, beige to gorgeous colors of red, purple and greens, the choice of paints is enormous.

For such women that sport long nails in oval shape, half moon nail art really suits them perfectly. However, those that have short nails can try out a recent and funkier variety of half moon manicure like the triangular moon nail designs that look equally astonishing. There are a few images of such nail designs in today’s post.

When painting your nails with half moon nail art designs, it’s always better to go in for brighter shades that blend very well with lighter tones like red, maroon, deep blue, black and purple. Many young girls like using nude nail colors with brighter or bolder combinations using stones as well.

Half moon nails are not just meant for celebs or models, or for such women that attend grand parties. Half moon nail art suits those that are going to be brides as well. Yes, for brides to be, there are opulent bridal half moon nails to make their day a special event.

A wedding, needless, to say is the most cherished event in a girl’s life. Her dress, her hair, and her makeup needs to look the best. How about her nails? Well, they need to make a style statement too. For creating that edgy look, there are brilliant bridal half moon nails that would make any girl look like a diva!

Bridal half moon nails often include using blocks of vibrant colors like shimmering reds and maroons with metallic paints of golden and silver. Many nail parlous of today offer these gorgeous nail designs in intricate patterns, some of which also include the use of pretty laces, studs and rhinestones.

Be it any occasion, this nail art definitely sets the style quotient at a very high level. I am hoping that all you pretty ladies will try out the below showcased stunning and beautiful half moon nail art designs and make a mark at any event!
