Colour block nails

Friday, 29 June 2012

I'm off to a wedding tomorrow and I have a really nice colour block dress (in navy, green, pink and orange) to wear, so I decided to theme my nails to go with the dress.  This did take AGES.  Luckily I had no plans for my Friday night apart from doing my nails, drinking a lot of vodka and watching trash TV whilst doing all of the above.

I did the base colours the previous night, as I was using stickers/tape to get the design neat, and it's best that your nails are totally dry if you are going to try and do this.

The colours I used were:
Beauty UK 230 (pale minty green)
OPI Russian Navy (dark blue)
Angelica Blue Glitter
OPI La Paz-itively Hot (pink)
Max Factor Colour Effect Bright Orange
GOSH Silver (this is an excellent silver foil by the way)

I used some really skinny tape to mark off sections on some fingers, and thicker tape on others.  I then painted on the polish and left it a million years* to dry before taking the tape off so it didn't lift.   After this I chucked a few diamantes on and good to go!

  1. You are a very creative person. To come up with so many different bright drawings for manicure is quite difficult. But this is also a creative process when you can feel yourself an artist.
