  • Nails with color blocking art looks eye-catching and not so ordinary, but in fact it takes just a few steps to make it. If you have a free hour, this nail tutorial is a good way to distract and as a result you’ll get a classy and fun manicure, suitable for either for everyday wear or any event. You can either use the same colors as here or choose your own and also prepare base coat, top coat, fine nail art brush and nail polish remover. First do your base coat and then paint a layer of beige polish on every nail. Do a second coat and start making nail art design on your index nail.

    5: MIDDLE NAIL: Paint a vertical stripe of silver polish down the center of the nail, and fill in half as pictured.

  • 6: PINKY NAIL: Paint a horizontal silver stripe halfway down the nail, and fill in from the midpoint to the cuticle. If you get some silver on your skin or cuticles, again, dip your brush in nail polish remover and carefully use it where needed.

    7: THUMBNAIL: Paint a diagonal silver stripe across, and fill in half of the nail as pictured.

  • 8: INDEX NAIL: Next, dab some silver polish onto your palette and dip the brush in it. Paint a thin horizontal line below the green tip, leaving a little space between them as pictured.

    9: RING NAIL: Paint a thin silver diagonal stripe, next to the green half, leaving a little space between them.
