Colour Blocking With Essie.

Hello everyone, I hope you are all well. 

Today I have a colour blocking mani with my new Essie polishes to show you. I have been using these polishes way too much lately, I love them! They are the perfect spring/summer colours and the formulas are all great, so I just had to use them all together in one design.

For this mani I started with a base of Barry M - Matte White and let that dry completely. I then added the striping tape at random angles.

Once I had done this I carefully filled in the gaps using a thin nail art brush - being careful not to go over the lines and mix the colours. I removed the striping tape whilst the polish was still wet. Then I topped it off with a topcoat, simples :).

Like I said earlier, all three of these colours are by Essie. The purple is called Under-Where?, the green is First Timer and the blue is In The Cab-ana. Aren't they pretty?!

I was very happy with how this mani turned out. It was very fiddly and time consuming working with the striping tape but I think it was worth the effort in the end. 

Have you tried Essie polishes? Which are your favourites?

Thanks for looking!
