Textured Colour Blocking

Hi everyone!

I just love combining striping tape with textured polishes. It allows you to combine different nail polish finishes in the best ways! Today I combined them in some colour blocking nail art. Painted Fingertips | Textured colour blocking

This isn’t the first time I’ve combined tape and texture in this way – in fact I’ve done it both over black and over white before. This time I went with a gold base of Tip Top Gold Digger and the result is far more royal-looking. Painted Fingertips | Textured colour blocking

I added tape in random geometric patterns then filled in the gaps with Essie Lots of Lux, OPI The Impossible, Catrice Plumdog Millionaire, and Rimmel Total Eclipse.  Painted Fingertips | Textured colour blocking

Just look at those textures! I know that textures are old, old, old news now, but I do still enjoy them! Painted Fingertips | Textured colour blocking

    I love this mani!! But it takes so long for me to achieve this look that I just can’t do it. I’ll live through your arts instead!

      Thanks! For ones like this I’ll usually do the base polish one evening and then do the tape & texture the next so it doesn’t feel like it takes so long.
