Color blocked nails have a funky, geometric feel, and generally consists of different colored shapes with hard edges that are juxtaposed together.
Color Blocked Manicures
Color blocking is hot in the fashion world right now, and has even found its way to makeup and hair color – so it only makes sense that next in line would be color blocked nails!
Try DIY Nail Art
Nail art is much easier to do yourself than you may think, and color blocking is especially simple – you won't even need any special polishes or supplies or an especially steady hand.
What you will need is three different and opaque polish colors you'd like to incorporate into your design.
Black and white are great with a pop of color, or go crazy with a trifecta of neon brights or sparkly metallics or mix and match all of the above.
And you will need a roll of scotch tape and a good fast drying top coat (Seche Vite is a great one to try).
The above color blocked nails were done by a friend who says “they were fun to do, but I'm definitely not the most skilled manicurist”
Not bad for a first try on your own nails. You may want to buddy up with a friend to do each other's nails.
Don't forget to carefully clean side edges of nails for any smudged polish. A wooden toothpick works great for this little finishing job.
