half moon nails

This is totally doable.  Clearly I will need to cheat … nail polish pens, anyone?

A half moon manicure, also known as a reverse french manicure, starts with a fully painted (often with a darker color polish)with a tiny half-moon left bare or colored lightly at the base of every fingernail.

Fun fact:  the half moon manicure gained its popularity first in the 1920s – worn by Old Hollywood actresses, and then the manicure played a starring role during the burlesque era.

Following suit, Dita Von Teese, burlesque model and actress, has been rocking the glamorous nail-do for years!
