Tutorial: Matte Colorblock Nails

Hi Friends, I created a step-by-step tutorial for you all for the Matte colorblock nail art from my last post.

For this nail art you would need -
1. Nail Polishes.
2. Stripping Tape.
3. Top Coat.
4. Base Coat.
5. Scissors.

Step 1. To start, first paint your nails with a base coat to protect your nails.

Step 2. When the base coat is dry, on top of it paint your nails with a base polish. I used Maybelline's Naturally Creme. Make sure you polish dries completely, before you attempt step 3.

Step 3. Cut the stripping tape using scissors into two stripes and stick them on the nail side by side (as shown in the picture below). Make sure they are sticking to the nail and are not loose.

Step 4. On the wide block of the taped nail, paint with the bright nail polish. I used American Apparel's Blueberry.

Step 5. On the middle thin block of the taped nail, paint it with the blue nail polish. I used American Apparel's Peacock.

Step 6. Now quickly remove the tape and voila! the desired colorblocked nails. Now top it with Matte top coat for Matte version of the nails or with a regular top coat for glossy version of the nails.

Don't forget to share pictures with me if you try this design. If you have any comments about this tutorial or would like to see any specific nail art tutorials, then leave suggestions in the comments section below.
