Get Your Shapes On
Follow the Trend With Colorblocked Nails!
Once your base layer is dry, it’s time to start the colorblocking. I like each nail to be unique, so I tape each one differently. Remember to make sure the tape is lying down flat so the polish doesn’t seep underneath and that the tape is at an angle so that it will eventually form triangles.
Carefully paint your nail so the exposed part is your second color and make sure to paint over the tape so you have clean lines. It’s best to work quickly and with your second most opaque color for this layer.
Wait about thirty seconds after you paint over the tape and carefully pull the tape up to reveal a clean little triangle! Now each nail might be a different shape, depending on how you taped them up originally!
Now it’s time to tape off the last part of the color block. Like you did for the first part, you’ll want to tape your nails at an angle to make the last triangle on each nail. On a few nails, you will need two pieces of tape to make the triangle in the middle, so be careful to make sure everything lines up with the colors you have already painted.
Just like before, paint over the exposed part of your nail and the tape to get the third part of your color block on. Once it’s painted, wait thirty seconds and then pull it off to see the amazing color block you just created! Add a topcoat and you are finished!
