Saharan Color-Block Manicure

Hi all! Hope you didn't think I wouldn't make it! Cuz here I am with my Manicure for the week! ^_^ 

Even though I had a busy weekend, and an even busier week so far
 I'm glad I was able to come up with something to share with you all <3
So here is my take on the Trendy Colorblock! 

This was kind of a fluke actually. Originally I had plan to do some fancy dots, bows and bling over this three layer cake, but once I had it done I fell in love!!! 

The simplicity of it all was really appealing to me, which is unusual since my taste is known to be a little over the top. But this color combo, of the pale pearlescent pink, deep dark raspberry, and almost neon coral color was too perfect to mar with extra distractions.

I think these colors worked so well with this minimal mani. It just oozes sophistication with a hint of playfulness in the pop of coral. 

So simple to boot! I just painted on the light pink and let it dry. Then I went back over the top half with the corally color. Once that was completely dry, I used tape to section off the middle portion and laid in my darker band. 

Lacquer List: 
Chanel  Le Vernis - Le Perle 
China Glaze - Evening Seduction 
Essie - Tart Deco 

I know, most people can probably do this without tape guides. But I'm just so anal it would bother me to no end >_>;;; Also I think, the crisp lines add to that Mod Look. 

So I hope you all enjoyed this look. Lately I've been going more simplistic over fruffy. I wonder how long that trend will last. ^^; 

What about you all? Do you prefer simple and clean or deco galore 
when it comes to your finger tips? 
I'd love to know! 


  1. I love this! I don't have these colours in my collection though so I'm going to have to think about what colours I can use to recreate this look and make mine look as equally sophisticated :-)

    1. Aw thank you so much! I think that it will look classy in any shade as long as you get a good contrast! Can't wait to see what color combo you come up with ^____^

  2. I love this look! I might even try it *gasp* in blue!

    1. XD I think the new blue i picked up will look good with this :D

  3. I love this!!! It's so unique.

    1. Thanks so much! :D It is a little different from what I usually do. But I'm proud of stepping out of my comfort zone ^^
