Paint All the Nails Presents: Color Block

Provided for Review 
Hi everyone! Instead of a review, I have some nail art today with this month's Paint All the Nails link up. I missed June and July's link ups with life getting in the way but I didn't want to go any longer without having the chance to contribute to this group challenge. For this month the theme was Color Block.

Color blocking is a relatively easy form of doing nail art and one I really love. If you like abstract designs (and you know I do), then a color block prompt is a great way to spark creativity. Although school has begun and pumpkin spice products are creeping back on the market, it is still summer time for me. So with that in my head, I decided to go with a neon skittle look with black blocks. 


I used all the polishes from Cirque Colors Vice 2016 Collection (which I reviewed here), plus Memento Mori to create the blocks and here is my end result. Simple but striking. The black adds a dark contrast to the over-all bright color scheme. 


I applied a layer of matte topcoat and oh yes, I loooove how this looks matte. I am wearing these still today and I have been unconsciously petting my nails because it's so smooth. 


I hope you like the look I came up with and make sure to click on the links below to see what my fellow bloggers have created!
