Colour Blocking Nails

Beauty UK Tropical Collection

Hello all, I hope you are all good. The past few days I haven't been in the mood to do anything with my nails, but they had some pampering without any polish on as I've been oiling them and they look so much better. Anyway for today's nails, (and I really needed a kick up the bum to do this ha ha) I have used the Beauty UK Tropical Nail Polish that I won. I was planning on doing a water marble with these polishes, as I know they work really well, but I'm now saving that for another time. I have done a Colour Blocking Mani today using striping tape and french manicure straight guide strips. I put some of my striping tape on an old medical tape dispenser to make it easier to use them.

So I randomly stuck the tapes to my nails, painting with white polish and totally dry.

And with Beauty UK black polish too, I filled in the gaps. Working on one nail at a time, and carefully removing the tape once all the gaps were filled. The places where the polish went onto the white part once the tape was taken off, I just carefully went over again with white polish to neaten the look.

Not bad for a first attempt at this, and nice and colourful too for a last Summer mani. It is weird how as the weather changes and going into Autumn my mindset has already changed to Autumnal colours. 
Not sure how long I will keep this mani on as its still growing on me, drop me a comment, I'd love to know what you think .
Till next time stay safe and much love..
