Kimmie Kyees created this metallic nail art look by simply swiping some of the polish off.

1. Prep the nail with a base coat. Wait for it to completely dry and harden. Apply polish of choice on nails and allow to dry.

2. Using a Q-tip coated in nail polish remover, swipe across the nail creating a half-moon.

3. Find the center of the half-moon and drag the Q-tip upwards to create more negative space. Seal with top coat and allow to dry.
