Hey hun.

I love this look, and a good way to create it is to paint the nail as normal, but leaving the lanula free, but not worrying about getting the line perfectly curved first time.

using a square paint brush or similar, small of course, dip it in nail varnish remover (not so its dripping mind) and swipe out the lanula area.

Do your second coat, and keep to the curve as much as poss, then swipe out again to tidy the edges!

hope this helps, takes a bit of practise, but it looks fab when you do it right! :hug:

Paint the nail as normal and then take out the half moon shape with the pen xxhthxx

Nikki (aka Lotus Blossom) came 6th in the Excel photographic competition 2006 with her art deco nails, they were gorgeous.
I've searched for a pic but can't find one, not even on my email!!!

Send her a private message and she'll be able to help you, her nails looked amazing :D
