Citrus Slice Half Moons

Hey guys!

I've had this idea in my inspiration book for ages now (yes, I have a small notepad where I write down ideas for nail art, and it comes everywhere with me - you never know when inspiration might hit!), and I finally got around to doing it last night.

Fruit themed nails are always a popular choice during the summer months, so I decided to incorporate a fruit themed design with a half moon design.


To create this design, I followed my own tutorial for making perfect half moons. Then, I used a striping brush and some white polish to freehand the details of the lemon and lime slices. Super simple!


Obviously I'm enjoying the double accent nail trend that's going around, and I can see myself using this a lot in my upcoming nail art designs.


Oh and for anyone who's wondering, the colours I used are Orly Fresh and Color Club Almost Famous. I decided to go with Almost Famous on the non-accent nails, simply because I preferred the formula of that one.

What do you guys think of my citrus half moons?

And don't forget to enter my Nail-Venturous giveaway! It ends in one week!

  2. I love this! I've seen the citrus slices on the tip of the nail - but never as a half-moon mani.

  13. I like how this one turned out, the colours look summery but sour lol If I attempted it I wouldn;t get the lines straight. I've been trying to do the whole write your inspiration in the book thing but at home only because I'm scared people will look through it if I bought it with me

  18. Love the design...that green shade from Orly is a fav of mine in summer. Great free-hand. BTW, I am getting warnings again your site is not safe from my TREND MICRO anti-virus before I open it. i think what happened is it got reported on 'at risk' sites so it's going to continue to come up on some radar lists.

    1. Thanks!

      And I had someone mention one my FB page that Trend Micro is giving them the same warning. Unfortunately, since my Google Webmaster Tools tells me that my site is healthy, there's really nothing I can do.

  20. Such a great idea! It looks good enough to eat (or at least squeeze into a pitcher and make juice). The colors are perfect.
