9. Pastel Blue Moon Shape



The moon shape is everywhere, which is a good thing! This is one amazing look, the structure, the beautiful color and the shape, everything is just in place. And yet the best thing is that the nail art on the other hand is reversed, which makes the look even more dimensional.
