If you're looking for simple easy nail art designs, this one is for you. Crescent moon nails are pretty much similar to the classic French tips. The only difference is that the lunula, or part that resembles the shape, is to be accented. 

How to Create the Look  

To create crescent moon or half-moon nails, you will need a base coat, a paper hole reinforcement, a glossy topcoat and an old eyeshadow brush put on clean-up duty. Apply the base coat and allow it to dry. Place the round paper hole on your cuticles to cover the crescent area. Apply your glossy colour and remove the paper hole before the lacquer dries; use the eyeshadow brush to clean up the partially dry nail paint for a crisp shape. 

This Lakmé 9to5 Primer + Gloss Nail Colour -  Indigo Ink is the perfect blue shade to create this look. It dries quickly, giving your nails a long-lasting, intense, glossy shine. 

2. Confetti nails

Confetti nails are a fun way to wear a bunch of colours on your nails without having to worry about whether they will complement each other or not.  

How to Create the Look  

Start by applying a white colour as a base to make the other colours pop. Then pick 4-5 colours, can be rainbow-themed or different shades of the same colour, and use a dotting tool to apply the colours either all over your nail or in one chosen section. Confetti tips are an especially cool trend right now and look so adorable on shorter nail lengths. 

Use this Lakmé Absolute Gel Stylist Nail Color - Snowball. It gives you long-lasting gel-like nails and an extremely high gloss finish with every application.

How to Create the Look  

Stripes can be added to any manicure design either as an accent or be drawn next to each other to create a half-and-half look. 

To create this look, choose from the Lakmé True Wear Color Crush range of nail polishes. They have colour lock technology and are resin-based, making it a perfect choice. They are also long-lasting by nature and chip-resistant, giving your nails a vibrant and elegant look.

You can get as creative or innovative as you want with abstract designs and pastel colours.

You will, however, need paper holes cut into different shapes and learn how to layer pigments. Keep an eye out for trendy patterns to draw inspiration from.  

Choose the pastels from the Lakmé 9to5 Primer + Gloss Nail Colour range which has colours that dry quickly, giving your nails a long lasting, intense, glossy shine.
