The beauty of color-blocked nails is that it looks like you spent hours at the nail salon, but you can really accomplish the look in easy steps. To begin gather two nail colors, one light and one dark, a top coat and base coat, Scotch tape and silver nail striping tape. First paint your nails with your lighter color. Use the Scotch tape to mark off any sections or shapes you want to color-block. Next, use the silver striping tape as a border between the two colors. Add a topcoat and you’re ready to show off your trendy new look.
