manic MANI MONDAY: COLOR BLOCK NAILS

We super love everything that involves color blocking so you can imagine I loved the nails that inspired this tutorial. Of course, I saw a picture on Pinterest and thought, "I NEED TO RECREATE THIS." I also just purchased these nail colors that I'd been eyeing at Target so I figured they'd be perfect for this design.

These are the colors I used- Coral Cabana and Paradise Pink.

Paint your nails a solid color and tape off a random section.

Paint the empty space with another color.

Peel off the tape and repeat on all your nails. It should look something like this.

Draw a black polish line in a different direction than the colored polishes.

Fill in the empty space on one side of the line.

And finish with a no-chip top coat!

    1. I use different ones but this time I used Essie's No Chips Ahead. IT IS AMAZING. I'll get tired of my nail color before my nails ever start chipping.

  4. This manicure is so cute!! Neon manicures are all over the place, but I've never seen one done with black, which really makes it pop. I love the mani mondays, keep up the awesome work!!
