Flip Flop Challenge: Colour Blocking/Black & White

Tuesday, 12 February 2013

I started this post last night... and promptly fell asleep lol! Been a busy bee today so only just got a chance to sit down with the laptop... Not doing so well at keeping up here now am I?! Ah well, it's the taking part that counts eh?! I did a black and white mani in the 31 day challenge in January (see here) and have never tried colour blocking so decided to go for it! Started with a white base, then decided on a pale & mid blue with a deep teal for my blocks. I used nail art striping tape to mask off my sections randomly and then painted carefully between them with the brush in the bottle. Once it was all dry I whipped the tape off and voila! I always imagined this to be much harder than it actually was, will be trying a few more of these designs in the future.
