Double moon manicure

Celebrity nail artist Jin Soon Choi's double moon manicure.

I wasn't sure what, exactly, to name this nail art look. People talk about the "half-moon mani," but one might argue that the red moon is more whole than half. And there are two of them, making it a "double"—but one is also flipped in reverse. So... double reverse half-moon mani? Eeks, that makes it sound much harder than it really is!

I settled on simply "double moon," but whatever you want to call this, it looks sooo chic.

Here are the step-by-step instructions from celebrity nail artist Jin Soon Choi:

Double Moon Nail Art Tutorial

1. File and shape your nails into a long oval shape, and apply a base coat. (Jin used her own JINsoon Power Coat.)

2. Using a hot red nail polish, draw a circle starting from the base of the nail and ending it at a little below the centre mark. (Jin used JINsoon Nail Lacquer in Vanity from the Goop Classics 2 set; or try JINsoon Nail Lacquer in Coquette.)
