Twinsie Tuesday: Color Blocking

28 Aug

Hello Ladies!  Today we’re playing with color blocking.  I’m a big fan of color blocked manis.  I love the straight lines and geometric angles.  Today, I got my color palate from the t-shirt I was wearing that I got for $6 at JCPenny.  It wasn’t even on clearance.  I love JCP.

I did a neon mani just like this a couple months ago.  I loved it, so I duplicated the layout and just chose new colors; fall-ish colors.

I used Essie Alligator Purse, one of my new favorite colors, Jordana Chiffon and Sinful Colors Amethyst.  I used a new top coat today that I purchased from Etsy.  It’s called HK Girl Clear Top Coat.  The Glisten and Glow shop appears to be down right now.  I’m just getting an error page.  I don’t know if the shop is closed, or if Etsy is just having a problem.  I was introduced to this top coat by a reader.  So far, I like it.  I applied very smoothly, was fast drying and has great shine.  It really reminds me of Poshe.  I’m going to try to wear this mani for a couple of days to give the top coat a test drive.  I’ll try to remember to update you on my overall impression of HK Girl’s top coat.

Be sure the check out all the other manis today:

      Thanks Elizabeth! I had someone comment on FB that it reminded them of the Pepsi logo. 🙂

      I used HK Girl for the second time today and I feel like I get a lot of bubbles. Have you found that? Maybe it’s just user error.

      Thanks Jenn! I use clear tape and am meticulous about my application.

    I love JCP too. These colors look excellent together!

    Once again you’ve posted a great mani. I’ve noticed that few blogs actually have tasteful manis and yours is one of them. There are plenty of blogs with great ideas and talented writers but a lot of their stuff is just plain tacky, at least in my opinion. Then again I’ve never been huge on the studs, gems, 3D nail ad-ons, etc. It just looks tacky. Anyway, I’ve once again been inspired. I was actually about to do a tape mani and will start it after commenting!

      I’m so flattered! Thank you so much for the compliments!

    Tutorial for blocking like this?

    • TopCoatIt August 29, 2012 at 12:34 pm #

      Possibly… I’ll think about it.

  20. gelicnailart August 29, 2012 at 10:49 am #

    Almost thought that it looked country like from some flag with red, white and blue. (But like if it’s “old”, so the white isn’t white)

    • TopCoatIt August 29, 2012 at 12:40 pm #

      I thought the same thing! It looks like red, white and blue that have been antiqued or something.

  21. Anna @ GoingtotheShowing August 30, 2012 at 12:16 am #

    Pure perfection.

  22. Bridget September 3, 2012 at 10:53 pm #

    I love it! What is a super quick and easy way to do it? I have a TON of nail polish and love to do my nails fun!
