Whitney Port showed off some fine-looking tips last week when she went for her very own take on the half-moon manicure.

The former The Hills star has been going style crazy on Instagram this year and she totally wowed us at London Fashion Week in February.

And now she's given us further inspiration for spring with this gorgeously sparkly, monochrome mani courtesy of LA-based celebrity nail stylist, Stephanie Stone.

Nice nails Whitney! We love her take on the half-moon manicure, 26 March 2015

Stephanie has painted all manner of celebrity nails including those of Miley Cyrus and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and this cute, but kooky look was created for a wedding Whitney attended at the weekend (28 March).

"Whitney wanted a super chic look to wear," explained Stephanie. "So we decided to put a twist on two classic looks by combining them for this moon/french tip mash up!"

Whitney posted two shots to her Instagram account last week showing us how her nails were looking half-way through her mani after Stephanie had painted them white (below), as well as the beautiful finished result (above).

Begin your half-moon manicure by painting your nails with the palest colour first, 26 March 2015

To copy Whit's look, paint your nails with white first, then grab a black polish and create a curved line at the base of your nail.

Next, paint black polish above this line to fill in the rest of the nail, repeat on both hands, then go for a second coat of black to make sure you get a rich, even finish.

Wait 10 minutes for your nails to dry (they'll have a good 2-3 coats of polish on them, remember?), then grab a thin eyeliner brush dipped in a fine glitter polish like Mavala Nail Colour in Sparkling Gold, £4.75, boots.com and paint a line across the tips of your nails.

Finish with a glossy top coat like Sally Hansen Salon Manicure Top Coat, £9.95, boots.com and you're ready to rock and roll.
