Chrissy Teigen’s Trendy Moon Nails is a Sure Hit This Spring: How to Achieve

Chrissy Teigen is slowly transitioning her look to a Spring ready vibe by starting off with a chic nail trend.

The "Lip Sync Battle" host joined the bandwagon and sported a classic nail design but with a twist.

French manicures made a massive comeback since last year as several celebrities and social media influencers have been donning this nail trend.

As for the former Sports Illustrated model, she opted for an inverted french manicure. This nail design has the same features of the classic French manicure--by having two contrasting shades.

However, the other way to pull this off is by painting the lower part of the nails--known as the lunula or half-moon, instead of the tip of the nails.

This was seen over Chrissy Teigen Instagram Stories as she posted a series of clips flaunting her nicely done claws.

Interestingly, one user posted a tweet asking the cookbook author about her nails.

"Could you please post a pic of this manicure tho? Love it!" to which the 35-year-old tv personality gladly replied with a close-up pic of her moon nails, alongside a caption that says, "moons for the moon!"


The "Fab Life" host had stunning oval-shaped nails showcasing the minimalist nail design.
