Color Blocked Nail Art!

Hello my lovely readers! Today’s post is all about the nails I rocked a week ago for Easter Sunday. I’m pretty new to the nail art game, but had been dying to try a little something extra, so this design worked out perfectly! It’s pretty easy to master, and I’m pretty proud of the way mine came out after my first try 🙂

The polishes I used are by Morgan Taylor in the shades Color Me Bold (an electric orange) and Birthday Suit (the perfect nude for my light skin tone). I’m not sure where you can purchase these in stores (I got mine in a goody bag while interning at LAFW) but I found both shades online here and here.

While I kind of winged my technique while doing this design, I found a tutorial here. The only difference when I did it was that I layered two pieces of tape over one another to create the triangle. Both techniques work just fine though!

Two tips: be sure your nails are 200% dry before adding the tape onto your base color, and be sure to press down on the tape so that lines stay clean 🙂

If any of you end up trying this out, be sure to comment below and link me to your results!! I’d love to see 😀

Thank you so much for reading! If you enjoyed this post, be sure to follow me on here or through Bloglovin’! I also have a Twitter account and an Instagram account 🙂
