Alice+Olivia Runway Nails

We fell in love with this nail design as soon as we saw it at the Fall 2014 Runway Show for Alice+Olivia. It’s similar to the half moon design we did before, but with dots. It’s a chic and fun design for any occasion. With a few tips, you can have these runway nails in no time!

What You Need:

*Black polish

*Gold polish

*Bobby pin

*Piece of paper

*Clear top coat
