Pink-toned colour block mani inspired by an Instagrammer

An actually recently painted colour blocking pattern! Done just two weeks ago. This one was 99% inspired by Kafig's work (see inspiration photo below) but a slightly different colour palette. Petite peinture has also done the same 5-block patten in a great christmas-coloured spread, and Nailuminium, as always, has done some really intricate colour blocking (beyond my competency level).

I wanted to try this colour block with striping tape as most of my past colour blocks were freehanded, that or my striping tape abilities were still in training. This colour scheme came out of a new order of polish from nailpolishcanada.com (go there if you live in the great north and want some of the best and unique brands the world has to offer!). I got some more neutral/pink polishes to incorporate into my work appropriate mani monday nail art ideas! Now I would argue that this mani is work appropriate.... but then again I would hold that a neon gradient mani with holo stripes, micro glitter tips and big hex glitters is work appropriate because.... well it's just awesome.

If only my nails were as long and lovely as hers!

Ooooh sparkly holo hiding under that colour block! This photo was taken under camera flash. We don't have sun in Canada.
