Pink Color Blocking

Sorry for the double posts today; I finally had time to sit down and do my nails and was really excited to try this mani after swatching a ton of Sally Hansen polishes recently. I actually may attempt these again because they didn't quite turn out the way I wanted them to, but wanted to show my first try.

This color blocking nail art actually wasn't supposed to have silver stripes separating the colors. I failed so hard when taking the tape off so I had to do something to "save" the manicure ... this was my quick improvisation, and though it's a little messy, it's a good example of something you can do when you're painting your nails and something goes horribly wrong.

Here are the colors I used, clockwise from top left (all Sally Hansen polishes): Fuschia Flare, Shell We Dance, Rosy Outlook, Shell We Dance.

It's color blocking month in the Sally Hansen I <3 Nail Art campaign, so if you go to their Facebook page you can enter to win a trip to New York. Check it out and good luck!


  1. Lovely!! I think the silver looks really nice, it adds some sparkle to the design. :)

    1. Haha, thanks! Glad you liked my mistake :) I just re-did my colorblock nails with an intentional metallic stripe and they look SO much better!
