Nail Design Ideas by Alicia Torello

This nail artist is well known for her punk rock design. She has a lot of devoted followers simply because she is very creative. You will see her work in some fashion magazines, maybe you already seen one just didn’t know it was her creation.

The half moon mani you are looking at now according to Torello represents the best of both worlds.

To create the half moon mani, you will need to use stripping tape for the straight line marking then paint the top half with Essie’s Romper Room. Once the nail polish has dried up, apply the top coat. Using an orange wood stick with a bit of top coat on the end get the appliques. Once done, apply another layer of the top coat for the finishing touches.

If you don’t believe me, follow her on Instagram where she posts most of her manicure collection. She loves translating the latest runway or outfit into nail arts as seen in the picture below, just one of her amazing nail design.

How to Get the Ladyfingers Look:

To achieve the look, you will need a black art nail pen, Tuck Me in by Ginger+Liz and LA Pop by Zoya.

The first thing you need to do is start with a silver nail and using the pen, draw a small flower on each nail. Enclose the flower with a circle around it, and create another circle outside the one made earlier. Create zigzags on the remaining space. Dot the center triangular space of the zigzags then paint the top of your nail using a sheer iridescent polish. Apply the top coat for the perfect finish look.
