Spifster Shows How to Create Color Block Nail Art

Artist: Spifster Sutton @spifster
Proper placement of gel paint is the key to achieving a modern color block look. For thin, precise lines, Sutton recommends working with a small amount of product at a time, adding, “Using too much product will add weight to the bristles, making it harder to paint a consistent line.”



Step 1:

1. Apply gel base coat and then white gel paint, curing after each. Then create an exaggerated French tip with light blue gel paint. Cure.

Step 2:

2. Paint random half dome shapes on the nail in dark blue, pink and yellow gel paint. Cure.

Step 3:

3. Paint crescent shapes at the base of the nail and at the center with black gel paint. Cure.

Step 4:

4. Paint random vertical and horizontal lines in varying widths with black gel paint. Cure. To finish, apply gel top coat and cure.
