DIY: Color- Blocked Nails

I am being bold today! Trying this color-blocking trend, on my nails! 


I used two polishes for the color-blocking, Essie Haute As Hello and Essie Watermelon! I use OPI base coat and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri anti-chip top coat

 I put the Haute As Hello color as the base color, whichever colors you use make sure the lightest color goes on first! 

I let the coral color dry for about 20-30 minutes, do not put a top coat on just yet! 
Next I used the Watermelon color and kind of just drew lines all over my nails in different directions! The brush on this particular polish was very skinny so I had no problem getting precise lines. If your brush is thicker or wide then you could use a very skinny painting brush sold at craft stores to create precise lines! Apply the top coat last! 

 Here is my finished product! I love the two colors together, I am not really an artist so it is a little sloppy but it's a fun and different look! 

I tried to paint the other hand and it was awful so I decided to just do the one nail trend, I painted it the darker watermelon color and I love this look also! Fun, Fun!


Would you guys try out the color block trend on your nails?

  1. I would definitely do that! Do you think it would look better with darker colors, brighter colors, or contrasting dark/light colors?

    1. I have seen a few done with light and dark colors!! I saw yellow, purple and pink and it was so adorable! I chose these two colors because they were fun and bright but I'm sure a mixture I anything would look awesome!!

  3. They look super cute, great colors. I love doing color block nails when I can't choose one color. I use scotch tape to make lines instead of freehand (I can't draw strait lines)
