I love a good scapegoat film. The Great Gatsby is about as good a scapegoat film as I'm likely to get. Baz Luhrmanns production of the novel is Moulin Rouge-esque whacked out hip hopped technicolour splendour. So I wanted to do a 20s inspired mani, but there are already so many nude moon exquisite creations about that I had to put my own twist on it.
I used a cream for the bottom coat, red for a second coat, not taking it all the way down to the cuticle, and used a thin paintbrush with nude on to drag a raggedy half moon upwards. Glitter on the top third of the nail for sparkle and you're done.
