Adding color and glamour to life, one nail at a time.

So I’ve been m.i.a for a few weeks, and that was purely laziness! I do go through spurts of not doing my nails, and this was one of those times. I did my nails only once and I let the polish stay on til they were way past chipped and exhausted. Now they are naked. Boring but convenient.

Anyway, have yall heard about or implented the color lock style into your wardrobe or look? It is everywhere from clothes to makeup, so you know nails weren’t too far behind.  I’m totally loving it, and I decided to experiment a few weeks ago.

When I first decided that I wanted to try it out, this was not the look I envisioned. I thought more along the lines of a two toned, side-by-side look, but I still like what I ended up with.

I had been wearing the purple polish for a few days, and had just bought some new polish and wanted to try it out on the way home (I wasn’t driving!). Since I can’t get a straight line while riding in a car, when I got home I decided that a black line across would help cover that up stylishly. The reason that my nails are different colors is that I wanted to experiment and see which nail color looked best against my purple base. I ended up loving it, and doing my other hand the same way.

I will probably try colorblocked nails again at some point in the future, and try to mix it up a bit. Do you like the colorblocked nail trend? What are some looks that you have come up with?
