Celebrity manicurist Elle for Dermalect ME created moonbow nail designs at the Cynthia Rowley Fall 2014 show for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City.
A moonbow is a rainbow cause by refraction of light from the moon and is also called a lunar rainbow.
"Cynthia's key word describing the inspiration of her collection was 'moonbows,' a reflection on the romanticism of her sporty-chic line for the Fall 2014 season," Elle says. "Representing a rainbow of darker shades and not using any primary colors, we layered two shades from the same color family on one nail, beginning with a darker red, to orange, yellow, green, indigo and purple to achieve the perfect 'moonbow.'"
