Nail Art: Color Blocked Nails
I used to do my own nails back in high school. I loved nail art, my mom even got me books to give me techniques. But I got too busy with “the real world” I couldn’t be bothered anymore. It was always strictly red or black or the occasional other color.
Now that I’m cutting costs, I’m putting manicures and pedicures on a strictly DIY (Do It Yourself) basis.
Here’s some very basic nail art I did a couple of weeks back! Enjoy!
- MAC Hibiscus
- MAC Kid Orange
What you need:
- Cotton balls
- Nail polish remover
Assign which color you want as your tip color and apply it first. Practice patience and let it dry before doing anything else.
Put tape on top. About 1/3 of your nail! Use a toothpick to make sure it’s secure up until the edges of your nails.
Remove the remaining color using nail polish remover. You can use a cotton-covered toothpick to be more precise.
Apply the second color. It’s just like painting a room and using tape to cover the stuff you don’t want to get paint on.
Here is the finished product with an America’s Next Top Model pose <3
Enjoy doing your own nails and send me a link to your own nail art! Who knows, baka kopyahin ko kayo! Or if you’re lucky, baka kopyahin kayo ni Tito Sotto. Charot!
