The Nail Files: Colour Blocking



The Nail Files Link Up


This week's Pinspiration:



What I used:



The Mani:


I started with two coats of Paper Mache and let them dry completely. Taking the striping tape, I put three pieces on each feature nail. Using the nail brush, I then painted each of the four sections a different colour. Then, I removed the striping tape, let the polish dry for a while, and finished with a top coat.


It was much easier than I thought it would be, but that was because of the brush. Having a hard angle made getting into the corners a breeze. And since the brush is fairly thin, there weren't any gobs of polish. This is definitely a technique that I'll try again!


Have an awesome weekend, everyone!


And thanks to Tara and Vicki for hosting!

  2. Pretty! I'm never patient enough to use nail tape. I always end up putting it on before the polish is completely dry then messing everything up.
