Simple Color Blocking + Stamping Fail 2.0?

Hey guys!  So you know that nail art contest that Sally Hansen has had these past few months?  Well I planned on entering each month but I kind of get distracted by other things easily and didn't take time out to sit down and focus on a doing a design didn't have time for it...even though I have no job and all the time in the world... -_-

Anyways, I thought I would rapidly do some color blocking and enter it for last months theme...on the day the entry period ended (I swear I'm the procrastination QUEEN)!  I picked up some polishes and painted my nails faster than a ninja moving through the forest!  Wait...what?!

Here's what I came up with:
Polishes used:
Sally Hansen Mint Sorbet
Sally Hansen Lacey Lilac
Milani black striper polish

I decided to do something pretty simple so I thought,"why not put a huge stripe down the middle of my nails" and then BAM you have color blocking!  Very creative right? *sarcasm* (lol)  At first I wasn't sure if I liked the way my mani turned out but after string at my nails for a while I started to really like it!  Unfortunately I didn't finish my nails in time to enter last month's contest (I was literally 15 minutes late) but I'm sure I didn't have a chance since my nail art was so simple.

Oh what do we have here...did I try my hand at stamping again?!  Let's have a look shall we?

So I thought it would be a great idea to stamp some images on my nails to add some "oomph" to my color blocking.  I tried to stamp the flower looking image (the one on my index, ring, and pinkie fingers) in the middle of my nails but as you can see the image ended up being a little crooked *oops*.  I really like the way the butterfly image came out though and my stamping skills are a lot better than when I first started obviously.

Do you like color blocking manis?  What's your favorite color combo?  Are you a procrastinator like me? Lol don't answer that! XD

Thanks for reading!


  1. You did a great job on the manicure though! I like the color blocking trend but have yet to try it out on my nails so I really should some time :)

  2. I love this before you stamped it! I just love the clean lines of the manicure - might have to do something like this as well!

    1. Thanks! :) When I stamped it I was like meh... I might have to redo this mani when I have a chance.

  3. Ohhh I actually really like them!The stamping makes a really cool effect (:

  4. Hey! Just wanted to let you know I nominated you for the Best Blog Award :)
