Summer is in full swing here in Florida…so I haven’t been able to ignore my urge to use bold and bright colors in my wardrobe.
Colorblocking is a recent trend that basically involves using two bold and bright colors, that may be jarring alone, but create a beautiful combination together. Everyone from the first lady to different Hollywood celebrities seem to have jumped on the colorblocking bandwagon…
But colorblocking is definitely not limited to your outfits….for those who wish to ease into this trend….colorblocking manicures are here to the rescue! 🙂
Here’s what I tried —
Here are the colors I used:
1. Wet n Wild megalast nail color in Candy-licious
2. Wet n Wild Megalast nail color in Red Tape
3. Wet n Wild Wild Shine nail color in Metallica
Here’s the how to:
After applying a layer of base coat, I applied the pink Candylicious all over the nail. Once this layer had dried (allow at least 5 mins), I applied the red Red Tape over the other half of the nail. Lastly, you can join the two colors by applying a thing stripe of silver Metallica, between the two colored halves. It must be noted though that I don’t have any of my nail art supplies with me here, hence the silver stripe is a little wider than I would have liked. Also, I did the colorblocking manicure only on my thumbs and ring fingers….just to add a little whimsy 🙂
I’ll be posting more colorblocking ideas soon…be on the lookout! 🙂
