Step 1:  After applying a clear base coat.  Apply 1 coat of Lounge Lover by Essie.  A warm shade of coral. (Also a great color to wear solo)


Step 2:  Luckily High Class Affair is opaque, so applying it over a darker shade actually worked well.  Using the nail polish brush with a minimal amount of polish, paint a subtle curve at the lower part of each nail using High Class Affair by Essie.  Once you have your shape, fill in the rest of your nails by brushing upwards, following the curve.

Lastly seal in your half moon mani with your favorite clear dry fast top coat.
