Trends 2011: Half Moon Manicure

My first encounter with the half-moon manicure was upon seeing Marion Cotillard for Christian Dior... I stared at the picture for a few minutes, not only did Ms. Cotillard look beautiful, but even more enticing than Cotillard's beauty, or the precious Dior handbag in the picture, were her perfect half moon, white and black nails.

I teared out the page and kept it for my next visit to the Salon. Luckily for me, my Manicurist & friend Migdalia Santana was up for a challenge... She explained to me that I was actually the first client in seven years to ask her for a reverse french, half moon manicure!

"But I have a feeling you won't be the last!", said Migdalia.
Well, only a month and a half later Harper's Bazaar decides to publish their "Trends 2011" and guess what???? Yes! Moon Mani's are back!!!! Told ya!

Here are a few photos, which reflect my current love for half moon manicures... Enjoy!
