We鈥檝e been seeing a lot of eye designs around lately, and we can鈥檛 get enough! From jewelry to sweatshirts, eyes are everywhere, and we鈥檙e not mad about it. If you鈥檙e looking to experiment with this fun trend, look no further than your own fingernails. Not only is the design super cute, it鈥檚 an easy way to take a half moon mani to the next level.

Start by applying a base coat on your nails. Then, apply two layers of bright coral polish on all of your nails. You can use any base color you like, but we love using bright coral for spring and summer. Once the base color is dry, use your striper brush to paint a white semi-circle at the base of each nail. To make it easier to apply聽evenly,聽draw a line near your cuticle to create the base, then add the semi-circle to the top (or if you聽can鈥檛 freehand, use hole binding stickers to create your half moon mani! Just reverse the order of the color you paint your nails.) Once the white polish is dry, use your striper brush and blue polish to paint a circle in the middle of the white semi-circle.

Once the blue polish is dry, use the dotting tool and the black polish to add dots in the center of the blue circles. Pro tip: Use light pressure when you鈥檙e painting the dots 鈥 you don鈥檛 want to dent the base layers of polish! Once everything is completely dry, top it all off with your favorite topcoat.
