The combo of red and blue is one of my favorites. I did a color block mani a couple of years ago featuring these two colors (well with a bright coral instead of the red) and it was kind of a fail because the colors were rather transparent (post here). I decided to repeat the same color scheme and went with a mixed texture look. I also added some striping tape because I felt like something was missing.
I started with a base of my lovely Nails Inc Baker Street that went on flawlessly in two coats. I then added a coat of Seche Vite to make it dry faster and waited a while before adding the tape to mask the lower half of the nail. On the upper half I painted some Kiko 453 Cherry Red from the Sugar Mat collection. This went on a little sheer because it didn't adhere very well to the shiny surface. I did my best to get it opaque and removed the tape while it was still wet. I then waited for it to dry a bit and added the black striping tape. This tape didn't stay on very well because it wasn't secured with top coat but I still loved how it looked.
So what do you think? Would you wear this look? I personally think it's very edgy with the finish and color mix. To see some more amazing color block manicures make sure you check out these links:
