52 week challenge - week 3 colour block mani

Hello everyone :)
Today I have my colour blocking mani from the 52 week challenge to show you. Now, when I read it was colour blocking I had to google it as I had no idea what it was :P I looked at lots of mani's that people had done with this theme and they all seemed centred on clothing and patterns, I thought I'd base mine more on colours so I went searching and found this picture..

This shows different colour schemes and I thought I'd use one of these and incorporate some patterns into my mani. So after lots of debating I picked my colours and set out to work.

I decided to use OPI Alpine Snow, OPI Pink Friday, OPI DS Coronation, Barry M Grey and Revlon Lunar as my colours. I started off by painting my nails in alternating colours as the base and then just adding stripes/blocks of colour as I pleased, it was all a bit random this mani :P

Here's a picture of my nails in the sun to show you the scattered holo effect of the DS I used. I only got a few pictures of this mani as I really don't like how it turned out or how it looks. I really like the colour combination but the whole idea of colour blocking isn't something I really like and don't think I'll be repeating any time soon.

What do you think of colour block mani's? What colours and patterns would you use? let me know in the comments, I love reading comments from everyone :) Also, don't forget to enter my 50 follower giveaway :)

Thanks for reading,

  2. I am doing the challenge too, haven't come across the block week though. Looks difficult to do though!

  3. I think you did a great job! I like that it's random and a little unexpected-makes it unique. I just posted my week 3 too :)

  7. I love it. And I just go DS Coronation in the mail today - yay! Can't wait to try it on now that I've seen it on you. Great job!

  8. I'm also VERY puzzled about this weeks theme, "What the heck is colorblocks!?" I thought to myself, this picture was very helpful!

  9. Cute blog, love this idea!
