For ages I've wanted to try 'negative space' nails - where a section stays unpainted. I decided to try doing half-moons with the half moon remaining 'polish-less' as I thought it'd be easiest. I used Huckleberry by Barry M; one of their new spring Gelly shades. I love it!
I started by using a base coat of nail envy. I then freehanded half-moons at the base of each nail with the white nail art pen. I painted the rest of my nails with the pale blue (two coats) and then once dry, I went over the white line again to make it clearer and neater. I finished off with a shiny topcoat of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri. I was going to add lace-style doodles in/around the half moon, but really liked the simplicity of these so left them as they are in these pics!
